When I was growing up, we went to Grandma’s for Sunday Dinner. She always served standing rib roast, smashed potatoes with gravy, & peas. I have always loved standing rib roasts so, when I saw that Kroger had them on sale for $5.97 a pound, I had to buy a 3 pounder.

Instead of smashed, I went with potato wedges. The temps were quite a bit different & since I will let the meat rest for 15 minutes, I was able to fry the wedges during that time frame. Also, I didn’t have any peas.

I was able to get all the prep work completed during the 15 mins pre-heating time.

The platter is 1 my Mom used a lot. It’s probably almost as old as I am & is in better shape. LOL

The roast came out nice & crispy on the outside & pink & juicy on the inside. It was not as good as I remember Grandma’s but it was real tasty. The wedges came out good as well with a nice crispy crust & done just right on the inside.

Air Fryer Roast Beef with Herb Crust (Standing Rib Roast)


  • 2 lb beef roast
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons onion salt
  • 2 teaspoons parsley
  • 2 teaspoons thyme
  • 2 teaspoons basil or oregano
  • 1/2 tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  1. Preheat the air fryer for 15 minutes at 390 degrees. Combine the garlic powder, onion salt, parsley, thyme, and basil, salt, and pepper.
  2. Rub the roast with the olive oil then rub the herb mixture over the entire roast.
  3. Place the roast in preheated air fryer. Set timer for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, remove the basket and turn the roast over. NOTE: If the roast is standing, no need to turn.
  4. Reduce the temperature to 360 degrees on the air fryer and return the roast. Roast the beef for 20 minutes per pound (for rare) or 25 minutes per pound (for medium-rare), checking the temperature of the meat periodically.
  5. Allow the roast to set for 15 minutes before cutting.

Air Fryer Potato Wedges

  • 2 russet potatoes (rinsed and dried)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon crushed rosemary or Italian Seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon crushed thyme leaves (if using ground, only use 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon)
  • cooking spray (optional)
  1. Cut potatoes in half, then cut into wedges. Each potato should make 6-8 wedges depending on the thickness of the potatoes and the desired size of the wedge.
  2. In a large bowl, toss together potatoes with seasonings and olive oil.
  3. Spray the basket of the air fryer with cooking spray. Add the potatoes and if desired, spray potatoes with cooking spray for an extra crispy potato wedge.
  4. Set temperature to 390 degrees Fahrenheit and the timer for 15 minutes for regular sized wedges, adjust timing by a minute or two if the wedges are thinner or thicker.
  5. Want extra crispy wedges? Turn up the heat to 400 degrees Fahrenheit for an additional 2-3 minutes at the end of cooking time.
  6. Serve immediately.
