Air fryer roast beef

Cooking roast beef in an air fryer is a quick and efficient way to achieve a juicy and flavorful result. Here’s a simple recipe for air fryer roast beef:


  • 2 to 3 pounds beef roast (such as sirloin, ribeye, or tenderloin)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • Salt and black pepper to taste


  1. Preheat Air Fryer:
    • Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Prepare the Beef:
    • Pat the beef roast dry with paper towels. This helps to achieve a better sear.
  3. Season the Beef:
    • In a small bowl, mix together olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, dried thyme, dried rosemary, salt, and black pepper to create a seasoning mixture.
  4. Apply the Seasoning:
    • Rub the seasoning mixture evenly over the surface of the beef roast, ensuring it’s well coated on all sides.
  5. Air Fry the Roast:
    • Place the seasoned beef roast in the air fryer basket or on the air fryer tray, depending on the model you have.
  6. Cook:
    • Air fry the roast at 375°F (190°C) for about 25-30 minutes for medium-rare, or adjust the time based on your desired level of doneness. Remember that cooking times may vary depending on the size and thickness of your roast, as well as the specific model of your air fryer.
  7. Check for Doneness:
    • To check for doneness, use a meat thermometer. For medium-rare, the internal temperature should be around 135°F (57°C). Adjust the temperature to your liking.
  8. Rest the Roast:
    • Once cooked to your preferred doneness, remove the roast from the air fryer and let it rest for 10-15 minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute and ensures a moist result.
  9. Slice and Serve:
    • Slice the roast beef into thin slices and serve.
  10. Optional Gravy:
    • If desired, you can make a simple gravy using the drippings and a bit of flour or cornstarch mixed with water.
  11. Enjoy:
    • Enjoy your air fryer roast beef with your favorite side dishes!

This method gives you a flavorful and well-cooked roast beef with a nice sear on the outside. Adjust the seasoning and cooking time based on your personal preferences and the specifications of your air fryer.
