Air Fryer Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin is a straightforward recipe, but the slow-roasted flavor you get by cooking it in the air fryer is AMAZING!
Today, I marinated my pork tenderloin in a simple marinade and then left it there for a few hours before air frying it up.
The meat was tender and juicy, And without any oil, it’s a healthy dinner to serve you and your family, and truthfully it’s a great beginner recipe for anyone new to air frying.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PORK TENDERLOIN AND PORK LOIN?
Pork tenderloin and pork loin are about the same. They both are the other white meats. But there is a bit of a difference.
Pork tenderloin is also known as a pork fillet, and it’s a long thin piece of meat—the meat the pork tenderloin is taken from the rear of the pork.
A pork loin, also known as a pork loin joint, is taken from the larger pork section and is still very lean meat.
WHAT COLOR IS PORK TENDERLOIN?
The internal temperature needs to reach 145 degrees F, but it will still be a bit pink in the center of the pork tenderloin.
If you want it more well-done, you can, of course, continue to cook your tenderloin to your preference.
