  3. Brush both sides of steak with oil and rub with steak seasoning mixture.
  4. In batches to avoid crowding, place steaks in greased air-fryer basket and cook at 400°F, turning once, for 12 to 16 minutes for medium-rare or to preferred doneness. Brush with barbecue sauce. Let rest for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
