Ingredients

  • 1.5 lb pork tenderloin, about 1.5 lbs.
  • non stick cooking spray
  • 2 tbsp garlic scape pesto (recipe link below) or 2 small heads roasted garlic
  • salt & pepper

Instructions

  • Pat tenderloin dry. lightly coat all sides with non stick cooking spray.
  • Salt and pepper both sides. Rub with garlic scape pesto, or plain roasted garlic.
  • Spray rack and tray of air fryer with cooking spray. (NOTE: My air fryer specifies to use cooking spray or olive oil. A reader pointed out that a lot of air fryers suggest NOT using any oil, so check your manufacturer's instructions!!)
  • Cook on air fry setting, at 400°F for 8-10 minutes on first side. Carefully remove from air fryer. Flip.
  • Return to air fryer and cook for 8-10 more minutes. We cook ours to an internal temperature of 135°F. Then let rest 5-10 minutes. 
  • If you would like to serve with roasted vegetables, while pork is resting, add cut up veges, coated with no stick spray (and salt and pepper) to the rack of air fryer. Cook 5-8 minutes, depending on the size of your vegetable pieces, until tender and browned.
  • NOTE: USDA suggests all pork should be cooked to 145°F!!!
