Air Fryer Pork Tenderloin – make an incredibly tender, juicy and delicious pork tenderloin in just minutes in your air fryer. Just a few ingredients are all you need for this quick and easy dinner.
We all know I love the air fryer by now. And it is for so much more than just re-heating frozen foods to make them crispy. Air Fryer Chicken Breasts are some of the juiciest pieces of chicken you will ever have. And the same goes when you make a pork tenderloin.
Pork tenderloin is probably my favorite cut of pork, so I was hesitant to make it in the air fryer for a long time. I didn’t think it could get much better than my Sous Vide Pork Tenderloin. Well, this makes for some tough competition that is for sure!
What You’ll Need
- Pork Tenderloin
- Olive Oil
- Lemon Juice
- Fresh Rosemary
- Italian Seasoning
You really can use whatever seasoning you like for this, but for some reason I love rosemary and garlic on pork. But if you have any of The Best Dry Rub sitting in your pantry, or your favorite grilling seasoning. Anything you like on pork works great with this!
How To Make Air Fryer Pork Tenderloin
- Start by prepping your pork tenderloin. You want to trim any of the big pieces of extra fat away and remove any silver skin. You do want to leave some fat on the pork, this helps make it juicy. But if there are big pieces, you can remove those.
- Next season the pork evenly with salt and pepper.
- In a small bowl mix together the olive oil, chopped rosemary and minced garlic to make a paste. And slather that all over the pork tenderloin to evenly coat it.
- Preheat the air fryer to 400º F.
- Add the tenderloin to the air fryer and cook for 20-22 minutes. It took exactly 22 minutes in my air fryer to get the pork to an internal temperature of 145º F, which is the recommended temperature for serving.
- Remove from the air fryer and let it rest for 5 minutes before slicing to serve it.
To make this recipe I used a Cosori 5.8 Qt Air Fryer. It is big enough that you can fit plenty of food in, and the basket comes out so you can easily shake, stir, or flip whatever you are making.
What To Serve With Pork Tenderloin
You really can’t go wrong with side dishes. This pork tenderloin is fancy enough to entertain with, and when it happens to be just the three of us for a holiday, we have been known to make this dish so we don’t have so many leftovers!
If you have leftover pork tenderloin you can store in an air tight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. To reheat you can heat slices in the microwave or even the air fryer for a few minutes.
Depending on the size of your air fryer you can make up to 2 pork tenderloins at one time, and it will not affect the cooking time. You just want to make sure they aren’t touching, so if you can arrange them well and need more pork, go ahead and make both that usually come in a package.
