Making dinner for a family of 5 every night mostly can be a lot of work. There are many was to make a meal these days. From cold plates, to hot plates, prepared in ovens, or in a microwave, dinner time can become monotonous. Of course, its easy to shake things up with going out for dinner, or heating up the grill, but then its costs more money and more time and effort. That’s why we really do enjoy using our Philips Airfryer.
I honestly prefer cooking dinner from scratch with some modern help. Its easy to make a nice steak dinner and my kids love steak. What I must figure out is how much will be from scratch, and what shortcuts could I take to make it easier on me.
One of my favorite kitchen gadgets I have used this last year is my Phillips Airfryer. This little machine is awesome. I can fry foods without the oils and deep drying. I simple put my food in the basket, turn it on and let the hot air do the cooking. With the Phillips Airfyer’s starfish design, our food always comes out perfectly cooked and not dried out. Plus, for summer I used it in the garage outside the house, helping me keep out home cooler, our summer was up to 110 degrees.
But aside from no-oil frying, and keeping house temps down, the airfryer is useful for more than just frying or cooking typical foods. We recently tried out a Gordon Ramsey recipe for Coffee & Chili-Rubbed Ribeye Steak. I really am not a fan of cooking steak in the oven or stovetop and prefer grilling. So I was curious as to how the results would be cooking a steak in our AirFryer.
This recipe was easy and required little mess and clean up. While I decided to do my own take on the potatoes I followed the exact recipe for the steak and it was very good. The rub was very tasty, hints of spices, coffee, and a little bit of hotness. What was amazing was how juicy and succulent the ribeye came out. I was sure what to expect, but the AirFryer locked in the juices and cooked it thoroughly.
Coffee & Chili Rubbed Ribeye Steak with Pan Roasted Fingerling Potatoes and Compound Herb Butter
Yield: 4 Servings
Coffee and Chili Rubbed Rib- Eye Steak Ingredients.
- 1/4-cup Ancho chili powder
- ¼ cup finely ground espresso
- 2 Tbsp. Paprika
- 2 Tbsp. dark brown sugar
- 1 Tbsp. dry mustard
- 1 Tbsp. kosher salt
- 1 Tbsp. ground black pepper
- 1 Tbsp. ground coriander
- 1 Tbsp. dried Oregano
- 2 tsp. ground ginger
- 2 tsp. Aleppo Pepper
- 4 Boneless Rib- Eye Steak – 2 Inches Thick, approximately 1 ½ lbs. each
- Note: can use a smaller cut for a quicker cooking time
- Salt & Pepper to taste
To make the airfryer ribeye is fairly easy.
- Heat up Airfryer for 5-10 minutes on 390 degree.
- Mix the spices and rub the ribeye very heavily on front and back and on the sides. Make sure to coat it well, because the rub will help to lock in flavors and juices.
- Let the rubbed steak sit at room temperature for 20 minutes.
- Next place the steak into the airfryer using the proper rack.
- Cook for 10 mins. Turn and cook for an additional 10 minutes or to liking. After 20 mins I had a nice med-rare steak and it was delicious.
We served the steak with delicious fingerling potatoes and veggies. It was so simple and easy and such a quick and easy dinner idea with minimal clean up. We can cook one steak and feed our family and I have to say everyone enjoyed this recipe.
