RECIPE: Quick Air Fryer Pork Chops

For fast week night dinners, we love our air fryer.  Not only do they make amazing veggies (we love air fried carrots, sweet potatoes, and cauliflower), but we also use it to cook meat.  The meat turns out delicious and juicy every time, so it is a real go-to for a quick meal with easy cleanup.  The only down side is that we have to cook the veggies on the stovetop. ;)



Meat thermometer


  1. Assemble your rub.  Mix 2 Tbsp brown sugar and a total of 2 Tbsp old bay, and 1 tsp other spices (chili powder and coriander all work well)
  2. Rubbed on thawed meat. Optional: wait 1 hr at room temp or during the day in the fridge.
  3. Cook your chops:

Air fry at 390°F for 2 minutes per side, then 350°F until an internal temperature of 145°F is reached (6-8 min, flip after 4 min).  

Reverse sear method by baking at 270°F for 10 minutes per side, rest 10 minutes, then finish under the broiler.

4. Rest meat 10 min and serve with a smile!
