How to Cook a Maple-Mustard Pork Sirloin Roast in Your Air Fryer
This is one of the easiest and tastiest recipes imaginable, thanks to the magic of your air fryer. In about 35 minutes you can have a succulent pork roast that's a little sweet, a little savory, and nice and tender. The recipe starts with a small pork sirloin roast--about two pounds. You'll need to read the label on the roast. Some include salt (the label will say a solution that includes water and salt, or something similar), and others don't. If your roast does include salt, don't add additional salt, or at least not much, or your roast will be too salty to eat. If your roast doesn't include the salt solution, go ahead and sprinkle on a bit of salt (but don't go overboard). A little grainy mustard, maple syrup, and onion powder are all the roast needs to enhance its flavor and give you the start of a great meal. Don't forget to let the roast rest for about 10 minutes after you remove it from the air fryer. The rest will improve the juiciness of the roast. Enjoy!
Air Fryer Maple-Mustard Pork Sirloin Roast -- Serves 6
2 pound pork sirloin roast
2 tablespoons of maple syrup
2 tablespoons of grainy mustard
1/2 teaspoon of onion powder
1/4 teaspoon of ground pepper
Line your air fryer basket with two thicknesses of aluminum foil. You want to use enough foil to cover the bottom of the basket and about 2 inches up the sides (the foil needn't/shouldn't fit tightly in the basket). Spritz the foil with non-stick cooking spray. Pat the roast dry with paper towels and place it, fat-side-up (there may not be much fat on the roast, so don't worry if there isn't--that's okay) on the foil in your air fryer basket. In a small bowl or cup stir together well the maple syrup, mustard, onion powder, and pepper. Drizzle a little of the mixture over your roast and turn the roast over and drizzle the underside with some of the mixture. Turn the roast back over and drizzle all but about 1/3 of the remaining maple-mustard mixture on top of the roast. Put the roast-filled air fryer basket into your air fryer and air fry the roast at 300 degrees for about 20 minutes. Drizzle the roast with the remaining maple-mustard mixture and cook it for another 15 minutes or until the roast registers 145 degrees on an instant-read thermometer inserted into the middle of the roast. Remove the roast from the air fryer basket (lift it very, very carefully using the aluminum foil) and place it on a plate to rest for at least 10 minutes before slicing it thinly to serve.
