Let's get started!

Sprinkle 2 Tbsp. Chicago steak seasoning on each side of 2 6 oz. filet mignon steaks. Place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or overnight.  


Brush each side of both steaks with 1 Tbsp. of olive oil each. Place steaks in the air fryer and cook for 4 minutes on each side at 390 degrees.


Remove from the air fryer and top each filet with 1 Tbsp. garlic butter. Let the steak rest for 10 minutes before cutting.


Butterfly 2 4 oz. lobster tails by using kitchen scissors. Give it a good cut through 3/4 of the lobster, but do not go all the way through.


Carefully spread the shell open where you cut. Place your fingers under the meat in the shell and firmly, but gently, pull it out in one piece.  Close the shell so that the lobster meat rests on top of the shell.


Melt 2 Tbsp. of garlic butter, and brush the lobster tail meat with it. Season with salt and pepper.


Place the lobster tails in the air fryer basket with the cut lobster meat facing up. Cook at 380 degrees for about 5-7 minutes.


Squeeze 1/2 a lemon over the lobster tail.


Plate with additional garlic butter to dip the lobster and steak. Serve, and enjoy!
