  • 1 pork loin joint
  • 2 teaspoon salt


  • Score the rind length ways. Rind can be quite hard to cut through, so you will have to carefully use a sharp knife. Make sure to only cut the rind, and not to cut through to the fat and meat underneath.
  • Pat the rind dry with a paper towel, and salt generously. Make sure to rub salt into the cuts you just made. Then, leave the pork roast to rest uncovered in a refrigerator skin side up for around 24 hours. Make sure to have a look at it once or twice while it rests, and wipe off any liquid that appears. This will ensure that the rind dries out completely.
  • Preheat your air fryer to 400 F / 200 C.
  • Transfer the pork roast to the air fryer, skin side up, and air fry until the internal temperature of the pork is 145 F / 63 C. The exact roasting time will vary, but you can find suggested times in the table below.
  • Remove the cooked pork roast from the air fryer, and leave it for about 15 minutes before you carve and serve.



Use a meat thermometer! Your exact cooking time will vary depending on the size of the joint and the make and model of your air fryer.
