I am all about quick and easy meals these days. The easier and faster that I get out of the kitchen the better. Today I’ve got a super easy and yummy main dish that the family will love–air fryer pork tenderloin.
Like most of you, I have been spending an infinite amount of time in the kitchen since the lockdown began. Breakfast, lunch, dinner I am in there. My husband doesn’t cook at ALL so yeah, it’s me. My oldest son makes a hot breakfast for himself, and my middle child starts school so early that he makes himself cereal but breakfast for me and hubby? Me.
I have also be hyper aware of food waste since all of this started. I have been extra diligent about freezing meats and thawing properly so I can avoid going to the grocery store as much as possible. During grocery shopping I buy all kinds of meat, in different cuts.
My last grocery run had steak, ground beef, chicken wings, legs, thighs, pork sausage, pork tenderloin, chicken nuggets and so much more. I have tons of spices in my cabinet so I know that I can keep things pretty creative on my side.
However, like I mentioned before, the sheer amount of time I have spent in the kitchen is wearing me out. I am so excited to share this extremely simple air fryer pork tenderloin recipe that is not only easy and low maintenance, it is tender and delicious too!
All you need is butter and garlic and herb seasoning. These two ingredients and the magic of the air fryer is all you need! You can add a salad on the side or like me have some rice and peas or white rice on the side. You could even add some of these easy and amazing baby potatoes. If you want to really add some razzle dazzle saute some onions and peppers to go with it!
The flavor is super delicious without going over the top. Next time you go to the store make sure you pick up a tenderloin or two, this is a meal you are going to want to make over and over! Don’t forget to make these air fryer roasted vegetables for a healthy and delicious side.
