Cooking a Delicious Pork Roast in an Air Fryer
Getting the Perfect Pork Roast
When it comes to getting the perfect pork roast, it’s all about the cut of meat. For air frying, you’ll want to use a larger roast, like a loin or shoulder, as the smaller cuts might dry out. You’ll also want to choose a cut of pork with a good layer of fat for flavor. From there, you’ll need to season the roast with salt and pepper. If serving with vegetables, you can add a little garlic and onion powder for extra flavor.
Prepping the Air Fryer
Before you start air frying, you’ll need to preheat the air fryer to the correct temperature. For a pork roast, you’ll want to preheat the fryer to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Once the fryer is preheated, you can add the pork roast to the basket.
Air Frying the Pork Roast
Once you’ve added the pork roast to the air fryer, you can set the timer for 12 minutes. After 12 minutes, you’ll need to use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature. The pork should be cooked to a temperature of at least 145 degrees Fahrenheit. If the temperature isn’t high enough, you can add a few more minutes to the timer.
Letting the Pork Roast Rest
Once the pork roast has reached the correct temperature, you should remove it from the air fryer and let it rest for 5 minutes before slicing. During this time, the pork roast will continue to cook and the temperature will rise a few degrees. This will help make the pork roast tender and juicy.
Serving the Air Fryer Pork Roast
Finally, you can slice the pork roast and serve. The pork roast is delicious with mashed potatoes, roasted vegetables, or a side salad. You can also serve it with a delicious sauce, such as a sweet and sour sauce or a creamy gravy. Enjoy!
