Making pork loin in an air fryer is so easy and there's nothing to it! You can just SEE how juicy it is!


How long to cook a pork loin in an air fryer? 

Determining how long to cook your pork in the air fryer really depends on the size. This was about a 1.5 pound pork loin fillet - which is a cut of pork loin - but it's going to cook very similarly to a tenderloin. This was ready in 25 minutes!!! It's very important to have an instant read digital thermometer so you can check the temperature of your pork! It's ready at 145 degrees - so be sure to not overcook it. 


What is a good marinade for pork? 

Pork loin and tenderloin work great with a marinade - they're very forgiving cuts of meat that you can use a garlicky Italian marinade, spicy Mexican or even an Asian marinade with. For this pork loin air fryer recipe I knew exactly what I would do - I have had a Bourbon Barrel aged Worcestershire Sauce burning a whole in my cupboard for a few months now! So I put together a delicious pork marinade with that as my base. If you don't have that - you can use regular Worcestershire and you can always add a shot of Bourbon to it if you feel like it! 

Other than that - add dijon mustard, ginger, brown sugar, garlic and soy sauce - along with olive oil - so delicious! It really caramelized in the air fryer. I also threw some carrots in about halfway through - and I would have put in a baked potato if I'd had any! 

How to cook a pork loin in an air fryer? 

After you marinate your pork - I recommend overnight - you take the loin and pop it in the air fryer. THAT'S IT!!! I bought the new Paula Deen 9.5 quart air fryer specifically to use with this recipe! I saw a video of her using it to make TWO pork loins and had to try it! I also have a Philips XL (here's a link to Philips XXL) but it's too small for this. The Paula Deen is great when I'm making things that need more surface area. 

After you pop the loin in the air fryer - you set it to 350 degrees and 20 minutes! I temp check it at 20 minutes and once it's a140-145 I take it out and let it rest. That allows the juices to rest in the loin. 

Isn't it beautiful though? 

This boneless pork loin in an air fryer is everything! It was so juicy and you can just see that blush of pink in the loin fillet. That's how you know it's not going to be dry! Taking it out at 140-145 ensures the juiciness. And this was even great reheated in the microwave with my leftovers. I had chopped up some carrots and put in the air fryer with the loin halfway through - just tossed in olive oil, salt and pepper. It was great for lunches all week!
