This was an experiment that had a very happy ending. The dry rub on the tenderloin created a nice crispy crust while the inside stayed moist and juicy.

Instructions Checklist
  • Stir brown sugar, paprika, ground mustard, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper together in a small bowl until evenly combined.

  • Preheat an air fryer to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Carefully place tenderloin in the air fryer basket and cook, undisturbed, in the preheated air fryer for 20 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, place broccoli in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high until tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

  • Transfer tenderloin to a cutting board and let rest for 10 minutes before slicing.

  • While tenderloin is resting, place broccoli in the air fryer basket. Cook for 10 minutes, shaking the basket halfway through.
