So when we cook steak, I want to use every last bit. And on the rare (pun intended!) occasions we have extra at the end of a meal, you can be sure I will be reheating those leftovers.

  1. Preheat the air fryer to 350F / 180C.
  2. Place the steak into the air fryer basket.
  3. Reheat steak, checking every 2 minutes until the internal temperature reaches 110F – 130F / 43C – 55C. 
  4. Total reheat time depends on the thickness of your steak.

Expert Tips 

  • Allow the steak to come to room temperature for about 20 minutes before reheating. 
  • Thinner steaks will reheat faster, so cook similar-sized pieces of meat together. 
  • Watch closely as cooking times will vary based on thickness.
  • Use a meat thermometer so you don’t overcook the meat. 

How To Reheat Steak on the Grill

  • Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
  • Sear the steak for 1 minute on each side, then move the steak to get indirect heat and warm for about 3 minutes before checking the temperature with a thermometer.
  • Check every 2 minutes, until the steak reaches a temperature of 110F – 130F / 43 – 55C.

How To Reheat Steak in the Oven

  • Preheat the oven to 250F / 120C. Place the steak on a wire rack on a baking sheet.
  • Heat until the steak reaches an internal temperature of 110F – 130F / 43 – 55C. This will take about 20 minutes, depending on the size of the steak.
  • For a crispier exterior, melt butter in a skillet and sear the reheated steak on each side for about 1 minute before serving.

How To Reheat Steak in a Skillet

  • Place a small amount of oil in a skillet that’s been heated to medium.
  • Add the steak and cover with a lid. Turn over after 1-2 minutes and check the temperature.
  • Flip after each 1-2 minute interval, until the steak is heated through and has reached an internal temperature of 110F – 130F / 43 – 55C.

Storage

  • Store – Leftover steak can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days.  
  • Reheat – Steak should not be reheated more than once, so only reheat what you will be able to eat. 
  • Freeze – If you won’t consume the steak within several days, wrap it in plastic and store it in a freezer bag until you are ready to use it—thaw overnight before reheating steak in air fryer.

Can You Reheat Sliced Steak?

Yes, but…since sliced steak has a lot of surface area, it can be easier to overheat the steak. This is one time where crowding the air fryer isn’t a bad thing, but you will still want to watch the meat closely.

My favorite method for reheating sliced steak is to use a hot skillet and let the steak barely hit the pan before you flip it and remove it.
