Let's get started!
HOW TO MAKE AIR FRYER PORK TENDERLOIN
First, let's started by combing all the spices, salt, pepper and oil in a small bowl to create a rub.
Now, place the pork tenderloin on a cutting board and coat with rub.
Once you're finished with coating the tenderloin with your rub.
Place in the air fryer and cook at 400F for 20 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 145F.
HOW TO MAKE SURE PORK IS PERFECTLY COOKED
I use an internal meat thermometer anytime I cook meat. It is a fail proof method to make sure you have perfectly cooked meat. Any kind of meat!
The probe should be inserted into the center of the pork tenderloin halfway through the thickest part.

The Best Air Fryer Pork Tenderloin - Rotisserie Style
- 1 Pound Whole Pork Tenderloin
- 1 teaspoon Garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon Cumin
- 1 teaspoon Oregano
- 1 teaspoon Dried Thyme
- 2 cloves Garlic, minced
- 1 Tablespoon avocado oil (Click here for my favorite brand on Amazon)
- 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
- ½ teaspoon Pepper
- In a small mixing bowl, combine all of the spices, salt, pepper and oil to create a rub.
- Place the pork tenderloin on a cutting board and coat all over with the rub.
- Place in the air fryer and cook at 400F for 20 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 145F with a meat thermometer.
- PORK TENDERLOIN: Found in most grocery stores. They are usually in packages of 1 or 2 and they average 1 pound each. Different from a pork loin which is larger and less tender. I like to buy the 2 pack and then freeze one for later use. According to food safety.gov you can store it in the freezer for up to 12 months.
- AVOCADO OIL: Best for high heat cooking. Alternatives would be ghee, coconut oil, grape seed oil, or sunflower oil.
- CHECKING THE PORK TENDERLOIN INTERNAL TEMPERATURE: I use an internal meat thermometer anytime I cook meat. It is a fail proof method to make sure you have perfectly cooked meat. Any kind of meat! The probe should be inserted into the center of the pork tenderloin halfway through thickest part.
- NUTRITION: per serving for ¼ pound of pork tenderloin and seasonings.
- If you don't have an air fryer - Sear in a hot oven safe skillet then transfer to a 400F oven and bake until internal temperature reaches 145F

Big HIT in my family for dinner tonight. Thank you for sharing I followed the whole recipe step by step and it was perfect.
I want to mak 5 for Xmas. How I longer do I have to cook them?
I am not sure. I would cook them until the internal temperature is 145F using an internal meat thermometer
Nancy H. says
So delicious! Love the spice combo. Followed recipe exactly. Don’t forget to remove the silverskin from the tenderloin before using the dry rub.
Lori P says
I've been a fan of yours for a long time. I decided to try a pork loin in the air fryer for the first time and came across your recipe. This rub is so flavorful- love that it has cumin in it, and it was juicy and had a nice crunchy exterior. Will be keeping this one in my back pocket.
Tasty except way too salty! I would use at least half the amount of salt. Otherwise tender cooked well!
Chantelle Nicholl says
I made this tonight exactly as instructed and it was incredible. I’m saving this into my dinner rotation. Thanks so much!
Amy D says
This was my first time making pork tenderloin and it was so good that I don't want to try any other recipe. I am a busy mom, homeschooling my two young daughters. I need quick recipes that are healthy and flavorful. Everyone in my family enjoyed it. I was able to fit two tenderloins in my air fryer, so I doubled the recipe. I figured that I would have leftovers, but everyone gobbled it up in one sitting.
Flo Thomson says
Is this pork tender cook on the air fryer crisp
Or the grill on the air fryer
Delicious but I would hold the salt. Very salty.
DIANA K says
This is super easy to make and it was delicious. I substituted chipotle for black pepper to take it up a notch. I am relatively new to using the air fryer for other foods besides wings and fries. Definitely making this again and trying your other recipes especially bacon.
Ann Johnson says
I made this for dinner tonight. It was wonderful. The rub is a great combination of spices. I might have cooked it a little too long at 400º and 20 min but it was still delicious. When testing with my meat thermometer, the temperature jumped from 125º to 150º very quickly! Next time I will watch the time and temp so it will be more pink on the inside but even slightly over done it was so good! I put the other tenderloin in the freezer so I will make that one soon!
Velma Lang says
Made this for dinner tonight. It was delicious! Will definitely be saving the recipe and making it again. Thank you!
Edward E Douglas says
I tried this recipe today. The meat turned out tender, moist, and delicious. I will definitely use it again.
This was the most flavorful, most tender pork tenderloin! So quick and easy to make too. It’s a keeper! Thank you for a great recipe!
Mike G says
going to try this tonight. Quick question though, My Airfryer/oven thingie has an actual rotisserie setting with a spit and rotator. Would you recommend using it, or the airfryers setting with this recipe?
That would probably work too, if you want to do that. I am not sure how it would mess it up!
This was delicious and so easy! Loved the blend of spices. Seriously, one of my favorite dishes to come out of the air fryer.
lisa ward says
We had this to night for dinner. Delicious!! Looking forward to having this for lunch!! Another fantastic recipe.!!! Thankyou !!

Can I cook 2 pieces of pork Tenderloin Marinade at same time ? Or one at the time ?
Yes, if they will fit
Nicholas A Dantuono says
I air fry my meatballs at 400° for 12 minutes and they come out looking fried...crispy on the outside...juicy on the inside
Absolute winner! Our tenderloin was 1.7lbs so we doubled the rub recipe and kept it in the air fryer about 15 minutes longer. It was absolutely melt-in-your-mouth delicious!
Lisa Reighley says
I made this tonight and it was absolutely one of the best things we’ve ever eaten. I’m keeping this one for sure! Thank you!!!
Maria Jansen says
The pork was delicious crispy on the outside moist in the inside.My Husband loved it.
Can this be done with a wet marinade or does it need to be a dry rub?
A wet marinade will work!
Soooooo yummy and moist!!!
Sheila B. says
I feel silly asking this, but I just got my air fryer. Does this go in to the basket? or on a baking sheet? Just thinking that it would drip a lot with the fat/oil if it was in a basket. If so, do you cover the bottom with foil? Thanks!
You can put it directly in the basket. There is no need to cover the bottom with foil but you definitely can!
The instructions with the Emeril Lagasse air fryer warn the foil should not be used in the appliance
I would not use foil if that is the case
Delicious ? I made it as directed. Nice spices that formed a crust outside and moist inside. AF x 15 minutes. Served with mashed potatoes with gravy and steamed green beans. Thank you for sharing. This will be in our regular rotation.
This was absolutely delicious! Thank you!
Jacque Hastert says
I am going to have to try this out in our new air fryer! I love that it only takes 30 minutes, so it's perfect for busy weekdays like today.
I love this! I am really getting into my air fryer and I'm also low carb. I love your videos on Instagram too. But back to the recipe, my family loves pork tenderloin but I never thought to make it in the air fryer. Can't wait to give it a go.
Such a great recipe, so tender and moist, loved it! My question is... how many servings per 1lb tenderloin?
It would be 4 servings
Do you have to dip the meat half way through. Or just leave it?
I never flipped it
I love the idea of cooking a pork tenderloin in the air fryer, just genius. These seasoning and crust sounds amazing. This is going into my recipe box. Thanks for a great recipe.
I got an air frier for my birthday (December baby here) and I have been cooking in it every night since!
This pork was so delicious and easy!!! Definitely going into our month rotation!
So happy to hear that and you are going to love your air fryer!
What a great idea! I never thought to use my air fryer for pork tenderloin, but it came out delicious. Thanks so much for sharing!
What a smart way to use the air fryer! Great photos too.
Would olive oil work with this recipe?
Olive oil would work
Omg I bought an air fryer last month and I’ve been obsessed ever since. Dying to try this!!
Would never have thought to make this in the airfryer! Wow, it comes out so moist and delicious... I'm never going back!
All I want for Christmas is an Air fryer.. so I can try this recipe out! This sounds fantastic!!
Carrie | Clean Eating Kitchen says
