Just the other day I was taking a break from cooking and admiring my air fryer. It’s been one of my favorite kitchen gadgets for years now, but it still manages to impress me every time! One thing that sets this appliance apart is its rapid cook oven/broiler function. If you don’t want to heat up your house by using an open flame or turning on your regular oven, then let us show you how best to make use of these features when making our famous pork chop recipe in just minutes!
My two favorites are my air fryer and Instant Pot–not far behind though is George Foreman Grill (but we’ll save that discussion for another day). The great thing about air-fried food like meatballs?
Air Fryer Pork Chops are a crispier and juicier dish than you can imagine. These tender, bone-in chops with golden Parmesan crust will be ready in less time than it takes to order takeout! A recipe that is simple enough for busy weeknight dinners but also perfect when hosting guests as well.
If you want something quick yet flavorful, nothing beats my Roasted Asparagus and Baked Sweet Potatoes! They take less than 30 minutes to cook with very little prep work. So when the main course is done, these are ready too – they’re a perfect match for any side dish or even just as an appetizer by themselves!
Best post for the air fryer:
I’ve found that the very best pork chops for the air fryer are thick, center-cut, bone-in. I aim to get them as thick as possible – somewhere between 1 ½ inch and 2 inches is what works well! The reason I like these types of cuts so much is they allow me time enough to cook each side which gives us a beautiful char on all sides. Thin pork chops will never have this opportunity because their cooking times are too short; thin ones require about 12 minutes while thicker meat requires even more – closer to 20 or 30 minutes depending on thicknesses overall. And with our rub from this recipe, we can achieve such deliciousness when it comes down just right thanks solely due to those gorgeous grill marks you end.
Paprika 1 tbsp
Salt to taste 1 tbsp
Garlic powder 2 tbsp
Freshly ground black pepper
Pork chops 4 boneless
Freshly grated parmesan ½ tbsp\
Air fryer preheating:
Preheat your air fryer for 5 minutes at 400 degrees. Then, place the pork chops in and cook them for 12 minutes or until they are completely cooked out on both sides.
The preheating process is an important step of cooking meat that will keep it from drying out while maintaining a delicious flavor with crispy outer edges!
Start by preheating your air fryer to 380°F, it should only take a couple of minutes for most models. Next mix together the paprika, onion powder, and salt with some pepper in a small bowl then apply the seasoning blend on both sides of four pork chops. There will be enough seasonings here that you may not use all of them but make sure every side is covered well!
A quick, easy alternative to the deep fryer is your air fryer. Air frying uses a circulating heated stream of dry hot air and convection heat which cooks by contact with the food rather than immersion in oil or water.
When cooking pork chops using an AIR FRYER, place them into an appropriate-sized basket so that they are not touching each other (they should have room for good circulation) before placing it onto one of its shelves inside this machine then set time according to thickness preference, desired doneness level and type of model you own! For thick cuts from the fridge straight out go up another 3 minutes because there’s more meat on those large pieces – the 9-minute rule applies here as well but just check at around 12 minutes.
If you want to make sure that your chops are cooked through, cooking them for the same amount of time on both sides will be a good idea.
You should always cook your meat thoroughly because it can lead to food poisoning if not done correctly. A great way to do this is by making sure they’re cooked evenly and served right away!
Air-fried pork chops are the best! They come out crispy on the outside, juicy, and flavorful on the inside. The secret to getting that perfect texture is adding a little bit of oil in with your favorite seasonings before popping them into an air fryer for about 10 minutes or less depending on how thick they are. As soon as you can make a dent in these babies without breaking through their crunchy exterior, it’s time to take them out because then comes some serious taste bud magic at hand:
The juiciness will soak between two thin slices of bread smeared with mayo (or smear one side yourself) and put pickles if desired. It’s just like eating hot ham sandwiches from Subway but way better.
