    1. Hi Jill, I would make sure it wasn’t dripping in the marinade but you could skip the step of patting dry to avoid rubbing off the delicious marinade. You will have to let us know how it turns out and whether you cook it in a pan or not!

  1. is it preheat to whatever and then drop it down to the desired cooking temperature for the amount of time required to get what you want? rare at 120 for 10 minutes for example? want that rare result
    and you can pull the meat away with a fork. drops off the bone with no effort.

    1. Hi William, you will still cook the roast beef at 390°F in the air fryer. Those temperatures listed are the internal temperatures for that type of beef (rare, medium, well done). So cook for 15 minutes at 390F, check the internal temperature then continue cooking until it reached your desired internal temperature. Hope that helps!

    1. Hi Norma, you can use any beef roast you have on hand. But I really enjoy using a beef tenderloin roast though for tenderness. Enjoy!
