How To Make Longhorn Steakhouse Parmesan Crusted Steak

Tender and juicy on the inside and crunchy on the outside, this parmesan crusted steak is delicious, quick and easy to whip up. Here’s what you need to get started:

  • Steak– For this recipe, we used 1 ½ inch thick sirloin steaks. 
  • Grape seed oil– Grapeseed oil has a high smoke point and is favored for this recipe but can be substituted with extra virgin olive oil.
  • Parmesan– You’ll need both shredded parmesan and grated parmesan for this recipe. 
  • Seasonings– Course sea salt, cracked black pepper, chopped parsley, and a ranch seasoning packet are all used to add a complex layer of flavor to your steak. 
  • Panko bread crumbs– These give you a crispy topping to your steak. 
  • Butter– Let your butter sit on the counter for about 30-minutes prior to beginning this recipe to allow it to soften. 
  • Minced garlic– We used fresh garlic cloves, but you could also use 5 teaspoons of dried minced garlic. 
  • Provolone cheese– A slice of provolone cheese on top of the steak melts and holds the parmesan crust topping to the steak. 

Once you’ve gathered all your ingredients, it’s time to cook your steak and make the topping! Follow the steps below for an irresistibly delicious steak dinner. 

  1. First, brush your steak generously with grapeseed oil. Then, season it well with salt and pepper on all sides. Allow the steak to sit at room temperature for 30-minutes. 
  2. Preheat your air fryer to 400? for about 5-minutes.
  3. Next, place the steaks into the air fryer basket and cook them for 5-minutes on each side. 10-minutes total. 
  4. While the steaks are cooking, mix your Panko breadcrumbs, grated parmesan, shredded parmesan, chopped parsley, minced garlic, butter, and ranch seasoning in a medium sized bowl. Mix well. 
  5. Remove the steaks from the air fryer. Add a slice of provolone cheese on top of each steak. Then, top each one with a generous scoop of the parmesan breadcrumb mixture. 
  6. Place your steaks gently back into the air fryer and cook for another 5-minutes. 
  7. Serve and Enjoy!

Tips and Tricks to Perfect Parmesan Crusted Steak and FAQs: 

  • Cooking times may vary depending on thickness and weight of steak. Use a meat thermometer to check for desired doneness. 
  • Keep in mind the steak will continue to rise in temperature as it rests. For a medium-rare steak, the internal temperature should be 125?, and for medium it should be 130? when you remove the steak. 
  • These cooking times we used yielded a medium rare steak. If you like your steak more done, you’ll need to increase the time a couple minutes.

FAQs

What temperature do I cook the steak at? 

For this recipe, we are using an air fryer. Steak needs to be cooked at a high heat so that it sears on the outside while holding the juices on the inside. So, you will cook your steak in the air fryer at 400?. 

How long does this recipe take to make?

It will take you about 30-minutes to do all the prep work for this recipe, and about 15-minutes for the steaks to fully cook. These delicious longhorn steakhouse parmesan crusted steaks will be ready to devour in about 45-minutes. 

How do I store leftover parmesan crusted steak?

These steaks are so good that I don’t usually have any leftovers, but if you do, you can easily store them in an airtight container in your refrigerator for 3-5 days. When you want to reheat them, toss them back into the air fryer at 400? for about 5-minutes to heat and crisp them back up. 

How do you put the crust on a steak?

With steak, you want to sear it on both sides before you add the parmesan crust to it. Because it’s hard for the crust to stick to a cooked slab of meat, we use provolone cheese to create a glue that holds the crust to the steak.
