Steaks and Homemade Steak Sauce

MMMMM steak. I loooove steak. And, I love steak and steak sauce. Although I’ll admit that most steaks don’t need anything, sometimes a good steak sauce really makes it all the more enjoyable.  I especially love steakhouse steak. It always has that little crust on it. YUM! These steaks are tender, and this Homemade Steak Sauce is a new favorite. No need to buy steak sauce ever again!

You can achieve that crusty steak at home just like your favorite restaurant.

Can Steak Be Cooked in An Air Fryer?

Yes, steak can be cooked in an air fryer.

Steaks cooked in an air fryer get cooked perfectly every time.

Since the air fryer is operated in a small space with a fan, the heat temperature is consistent.

Can Steak Be Reheated?

In order to keep steak from drying out, you need to reheat it low and slow.

Place the steak in a baking dish and bake in the oven at 200 to 250 degrees until it’s warmed through.

A one-inch thick steak should take 20 to 30 minutes.

What Is The Best Kind Of Steak For BBQ?

Top sirloin is a lean cut that is packed with flavor.  

Top sirloin is ideal for grilling, searing, and broiling in the oven.

Rib eye is another great cut for grilling.
