Making a roast in the Air Fryer does take some time and steps; however, if you may have forgotten to put the crockpot on in the morning, this is a great alternative method to use.
We paired this roast with Air Fryer Roasted Carrots and Potatoes.
Tips for Making Air Fryer Beef Roast:
This method does take some steps and patience, but it’s also very easy. The first thing you will want to do is preheat the air fryer for about 5 minutes, then place the roast in the air fryer to sear the outside.
It’s best to spray the air fryer with a cooking oil spray. I typically use olive oil cooking spray without an issue; however, if you prefer a higher smoke point, use an oil such as grapeseed oil.
The roast does need to be cooked from a thawed state. Be sure to let it thaw out before cooking.
It’s also best to season it, we use Weber Steak Seasoning on the roast and it was wonderful.
Remember to follow the recipe card completely, as the gravy packet is not made per the instructions on it. If you need to make it gluten-free, be sure to use a gluten-free brown gravy packet.
Once the roast is fully cooked, you’ll have drippings in the foil that can be used for gravy.
Can you put aluminum foil in the air fryer?
This works the best with a sheet of aluminum foil under it, this is what catches the gravy and liquid that is poured over the roast.
Foil can be used in the air fryer, but it needs to be rolled up on the sides so that air can fully circulate.
