This was a recipe that I had stored February 23rd, 2020. I don’t know what happened, but I never got around to trying it. In fact, I forgot all about it until the other day when I went to the store and bought four pork tenderloins for $12.80. Yes, the price of pork tenderloin is exciting to me! Here we are, @ 21 months later, and all I have to say is that I am sorry I did not try this sooner!!
This was one of the easiest dinners I’ve made. Definitely something we will come back to on our rotation, So I went over to check out the blog Recipeteacher.com, and it looks like there are several folks who share this blog, but the first one I read about was Jason. I really enjoyed what he had to say, about being a cook who likes to find the most basic ways to cook something, but still getting the “wow” factor. I can get behind that!
The one thing that I changed for this recipe has to do with our Air Fryer. Since ours comes with a spit, I chose not to preheat the air fryer for 5 minutes. As the meat was constantly rotating, there was no need to preheat and it came out perfectly.
Now that I’ve tried this recipe, I will definitely go back there to check out what else they have available. Again, this was so easy, and they results were delicious! Let’s jump right in!
What you’ll need:
- 1.25-1.75 lbs pork tenderloin
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 tbsp smoked paprika
- 1 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp ground mustard
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
- 1/2 tbsp olive oil
Whisk all dry ingredients together.
Remove any silver skin from pork.
Brush pork with oil on all sides.
Press rub into pork.
Skewer the tenderloin onto the spit. I then rolled the tenderloin around the cutting board just to pick up any little bits of seasoning still lying around.
Place the spit into the air fryer, set it to Air Fry for 20-22 minutes, or until the temperature reaches 145°.
Be sure to rest the tenderloin for 5 minutes before slicing.
All done! Please let me know if you try this recipe, and what you think of it. Would you change anything, add anything? Be sure to head over to Recipeteacher.com and check out their recipes.
