How to Make a 20-Minute, "Hurry-Up" Sirloin Pork Roast in Your Air Fryer
If you need dinner in about half an hour and have a small pork sirloin roast you're in luck. You can cook this "hurry up" version in about 20 minutes in your air fryer. The roast comes out nicely seasoned, full of flavor, and pretty juicy, particularly considering that pork sirloin roast is often kind of tough. Pork sirloin also is comparatively inexpensive--I get mine from Aldi for under $4--so this recipe is worth keeping around for a quick, cheap meal that people will actually eat and enjoy. I like to serve the roast with mashed sweet potatoes and a green veggie, but you could also use slices in a tasty sandwich. Enjoy!
Hurry Up Pork Sirloin Roast -- Serves 4+
1 1/2 pound pork sirloin roast (natural, unseasoned, but packed with the salt solution)
1/2 teaspoon of smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon of dried parsley flakes
1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon of onion powder
1/4 teaspoon of pepper
Tear off a small piece of aluminum foil that will fit in the bottom of your air fryer and an inch or two up the sides. Spritz the foil well with non-stick cooking spray. In a small bowl or cup, mix together the paprika, parsley flakes, garlic and onion powder, and pepper. You can add in a little salt, if you like, but I don't because, for us, the pork already has enough salt in the solution. Pat the pork dry with a paper towel, then spritz it with olive oil or rub about half a tablespoon of oil all over the roast. Sprinkle the spice mixture on all sides of the pork and then put the pork on the foil in your air fryer basket. Air fry the pork at 360 degrees for about 20 minutes or until it reaches an internal temperature of at least 145 degrees. Don't let the pork go too much over 145, or the roast will be tough. Let the roast rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing it.
