I use only salt and pepper, but you’re free to use any spices you like.
Place the prepared top sirloin cap roast on the rack in the air fryer and cook it initially at 180 degrees Celsius (356 degrees Fahrenheit), then reduce the temperature to 150 degrees Celsius (302 degrees Fahrenheit) until the internal temperature reaches 57 degrees Celsius (135 degrees Fahrenheit).
Once the internal temperature is reached, take the roast out and place it on a cutting board where it should rest for about 20 minutes before slicing and serving.
