People always ask which AirFryer. So, GoWISE USA 5.8-Quarts 8-in-1 Electric Air Fryer XL. In this case, it's the recipe and procedure for the whole meal, but feel free to use sides you may prefer. I love green peas, especially the way I do them.
- 1 to 2 NY Strip steaks, about 8 ounces each
- 1 to 2 portions of frozen green peas
- 1 to 2 cloves of fresh minced garlic
- Olive oil (1-2 TBS)
- Unsalted butter (2-4 pats)
- Salt and pepper
The above quantities are for a 1-person or 2 person dinner.
You don't have to do an extended seasoning of the steaks, but I like to plan ahead so that I can. Season both sides with salt and pepper, then let sit at room temperature for 40 minutes, which seems to be the recommended length of time.
At the 35-minute point, pre-heat the air fryer for 5 minutes at 400F. Once done, just put your steaks in the basket. If you're doing 2 of them, make sure there's separation between them, and the sides of the basket.
Air fry for 9 minutes at 400F for a nice medium rare. 10 minutes should be fine for medium. If you want it more done than that, you're on your own. ;)
While that's air frying, heat a sauté pan on medium heat with your olive oil, then toss in your garlic for just maybe 10 seconds or so, then your frozen peas, and season with salt and pepper. Toss it around and then cover in order to thaw the peas. 2-3 minutes should be enough. Then, saute while stirring for a few more mintes, until some of the peas get singed a bit. Turn off the heat, cover, and let sit.
Once the steak(s) are done, remove to a plate and let rest for 5 minutes. While resting, heat a frying pan on high and 1-2 minutes before the resting period is done, drop in your butter. Let it go until it stops bubbling and begins to brown. Then sear the steak(s) on both sides, 30 seconds per side. Feel free to slide it around in the butter or even to spoon butter over the top.
While searing, turn the heat back up to medium on your peas while covered, to reheat. Do a final taste and season on the peas, serve.
Until next time.
