Today I’m excited to share this new recipe for Air Fryer Pork Loin Roast! Are you wondering how I came to be making Pork Loin Roast in the Air Fryer when I recently shared Instant Pot Balsamic Pork Roast and also updated my old favorite Slow Cooker Balsamic Pork Roast?

I’m crediting the huge pork loin roasts that are such a bargain at Costco for my obsession with pork roast recipes lately! I bought a HUGE Pork Loin Roast to work on the Instant Pot and Slow Cooker recipes, and I had a big enough piece left to freeze for another meal, so a few weeks later I pulled it out to experiment with Air Fryer Pork Loin Roast. 

Kara and I both loved how our pork roast turned out in the Air Fryer, and it was done in 30 minutes, FTW! The Air Fryer pork roast was a bit more chewy and firmer than the Instant Pot or Slow Cooker pork roast, but equally delicious. And this was so easy for a quick (and relatively inexpensive) main dish. If you’re an Air Fryer fan I hope you’ll try it!

What Air Fryer did I use?

I love my Cuisinart Convection Air Fryer Toaster Oven which is what I used for this recipe. This air fryer has a larger basket, which made it easy to fit a a pork roast. (Air fryer links are affiliate links. Use Air Fryer Recipes to see the other Air Fryer recipes on this site.)

What If You Don’t Have an Air Fryer?

My site used to have a recipe for Pork Roast with Sage or Rosemary Herb Rub. If you’d like to use the ingredients for this recipe and cook it in the oven, you can find the cooking instructions for the oven at that printer-friendly link.

How to Make Air Fryer Pork Loin Roast:

(Scroll down for complete recipe with nutritional information.)

  1. Trim the pork roast, cutting off some fat if there is a lot.
  2. If your roast has a layer of fat over the top, cut that in slits.
  3. Rub the roast with olive oil.
  4. We used same Rosemary and Garlic Herb Rub that we used for the Instant Pot and Slow Cooker pork roasts, but you can use any kind of spice and herb mixture that’s good on pork.
  5. Be sure the roast has come to room temperature when you’re ready to cook.
  6. Set Air Fryer to 360F/180C. If your Air Fryer has multiple functions, be sure it is on Air Fry. 
  7. Cook 30 minutes, or until the pork reaches 145F/60C on an Instant Read Meat Thermometer (affiliate link).
  8. The fat on ours got a bit dark, but even the darker parts tasted great when we ate it. (If you Air Fryer has different heights where you can put the tray, I’d put it in the lower slot next time.)
  9. Let the roast rest a few minutes before slicing. 
  10. Serve hot, and the leftovers will also be good cold for sandwiches or to use in a salad or stir-fry.

Notes

I really like this Rosemary and Garlic Herb Rub on pork, and I make it in batches to keep in the spice cupboard. But you can use any rub or herb and spice mixture that's good on pork. Check out Pork Roast with Sage or Rosemary Herb Rub if you'd like to try making this in the oven.

  1. I just realized the pork loin was two tenderloins.  Do you think it will still work? I’ll decrease the cooking time and check the temperature

    • I wish I could say for sure. I know the tenderloin is leaner and cooks more quickly (sounds like you already know that.) If you start to check sooner and don’t overcook I’m guessing it will work; I might google Air Fryer Pork Tenderloin to see if there are other issues besides the cooking time. I would start to check in 15 minutes, although it will probably take a bit longer. Let me know how it works!

  2. Husband and I loved it! Definitely a keeper. So easy and flavorful!
