  • 4 pound sirloin tip roast see note
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 tablespoons montreal steak spice


  • Preheat air fryer to 390°F. Trim excess fat off of roast.
  • Brush roast with olive oil. Sprinkle with montreal steak spice on all sides, and press gently to coat.
  • Place roast into preheated air fryer basket. Cook for 15 minutes. This is the sear.
  • Reduce heat to 360°F. Cook for 1 hour 40 minutes, or 25 minutes per pound.
  • Towards the end of cooking, check temperature with an instant read thermometer (cook to 135°F for medium rare).
  • Place roast on a serving tray. Tent with foil, and rest for 10 minutes before slicing.


We like using sirloin tip roast for this recipe, but feel free to use any cut you prefer.
