Instructions:1. Preheat the Air Fryer:Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C) for about 5 minutes.
Prepare the Pork Tenderloin:– Trim any excess fat from the pork tenderloin.– In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, dried thyme, salt, and black pepper to create a seasoning rub.
Season the Pork:– Rub the seasoning mixture all over the pork tenderloin, making sure to coat it evenly.
Air Fry the Pork Tenderloin:– Place the seasoned pork tenderloin in the air fryer basket.– Cook at 400°F (200°C) for 20-25 minutes, turning the tenderloin halfway through the cooking time.
Check for Doneness:– Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of the pork. It should reach at least 145°F (63°C).– If the pork needs more time, continue air-frying in 5-minute increments until it reaches the desired temperature.
1. Rest and Slice:Once cooked, let the pork tenderloin rest for a few minutes before slicing. This allows the juices to redistribute and keeps the meat moist.
Serve:– Slice the pork tenderloin into medallions and serve with your favorite sides.
