  • 1.5 lbs pork tenderloin
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Preheat the Air Fryer:
    • Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C) for about 5 minutes.
  2. Prepare the Pork Tenderloin:
    • Trim excess fat from the pork tenderloin.
    • In a small bowl, mix together olive oil, garlic powder, onion powder, thyme, smoked paprika, salt, and black pepper to create a spice rub.

    • Rub the spice mixture evenly over the pork tenderloin, making sure to coat all sides.
