  • Yield: about 6 servings


A mouthwatering, tender and juicy pork loin roast, seasoned to perfection and made in an air fryer.


  • 2lb – 2 1/2lb boneless pork loin roast
  • 1 tbs brown sugar
  • 1 tbs smoked paprika
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground mustard
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp kosher or coarse salt
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne (optional)
  • 1 tbs olive oil


  1. Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl
  2. Coat the roast with olive oil and add the seasoning rub. Massage it well onto the entire roast.
  3. Preheat air fryer to 360° F for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, carefully place pork roast into air fryer and air fry at 360° F for 45-55 minutes. Internal temp should be 145° – 160° F. (If internal temperature is not yet 145°, continue to cook another 5-10 minutes or however long is required depending on weight of roast)
  4. When cooking time is complete, carefully remove pork roast to a plate and let rest for at least 5 minutes before serving.



Make a simple gravy by adding 1 cup of chicken broth to a saucepan, any remaining seasoning rub mix, and simmer for about 5 minutes. You can also add in any juices that have collected on the plate during the roast resting time, as well as any juices that may be in the air fryer pan. Then, in a seperate cup or small bowl, mix 2 tablespoons of cornstarch with 4 tablespoons of cold water. Mix well. Slowly pour the cornstarch slurry into the simmering broth to thicken.
