Air Fryer Pork Tenderloin

Simply delicious, Air Fryer Pork Tenderloin turns out perfect every time! A beautifully seasoned, juicy, and gluten free quick & easy dinner!

We’re on the air fryer pork train! Choo choooooo!

I know, that was quite an intro, but we JUST had air fryer pork chops so it just made sense.

The thing about this recipe is it’s just simple and GOOD.

It doesn’t have crazy, bold flavors like the asian Instant Pot pork tenderloin. I tried 4 different spice variations to give you some more PIZAZZ…

…But this simple little number always came out on top.

And you know what they say?

KISS = Keep it simple stupid.

So, today, we’re keeping it simple.

But, not stupid because no one here is stupid

Can you cook Pork Tenderloin in the Air Fryer?

Okay, so if you know me aaat all, you know I love me a good kitchen gadget! The air fryer happens to be one of my go-to must have appliances in the kitchen, because it makes DELICIOUS food with so much less oil than traditionally fried food, but doesn’t sacrifice on taste, texture or flavor! AND did you know that you can even cook pork in the air fryer? YES, it’s true! Today’s pork tenderloin air fryer recipe is SO simple to make, is extremely flavorful, and will free up your oven and stovetop for whatever sides you want to serve with it! Also, here on the blog I have endless chicken and beef recipes, but not as many for pork (which when cooked right, is BOMB) so I thought it was time to change that. Along with green curry pork tacos and honey mustard slow cooker pork loin, I decided to add this bad boy to the list and trust me when I say you’ll be glad I did!

Is Pork Tenderloin Healthy?

YES! Pork tenderloin is a fabulous cut of meat to enjoy if you’re looking to eat a little bit healthier. It is one of the leanest cuts of pork, is boneless, and is surprisingly JUST as lean as a boneless, skinless chicken breast.

How to cook Pork Tenderloin in Air Fryer


Carefully remove the silver skin from your cuts of pork and rub them generously with olive oil. 


In a small bowl, add all the seasonings and mix them thoroughly. Rub them evenly into the pork so that it is well covered.


Cook the pork tenderloin in your air fryer at 400 degrees Fahrenheit until it is done. You’ll want to flip the pork once during the cook time. 


Let the pork tenderloin rest for a bit, then serve it up with desired side dishes and DEVOUR!

How long to cook Air Fryer Pork Tenderloin Slices

If you’re looking for tender, flavorful and delicious pork meat, then it is VERY important that you understand that cook time is everything! If you undercook your pork, it won’t be safe to eat. Likewise, if you overcook the pork tenderloin, it will end up dry, tough, and less flavorful. For this pork tenderloin recipe, you will want to cook the meat for 12 minutes on one side, then flip it over and cook an additional 10-12 minutes until the pork is done.

Pork Internal Temperature

If you’re wondering when your air fryer pork tenderloin is done, the safest and most foolproof way to know is by checking the internal temperature of the meat. The tenderloin is done when the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees Fahrenheit.

What to serve with Air Fryer Pork Tenderloin

This is one of those slices of meat that is super tasty all on its own, but it shines best when served with nutritious side dishes! I recommend cooking up some red skin mashed potatoes and a side of colorful asparagus stir fry to finish off the plate. For a low carb option that is keto-friendly, serve this tenderloin alongside some cauliflower rice and sauteed broccolini!
