Tips on How to Cook Pork Chops in Air Fryer
- With so many different cuts and thicknesses of pork chops, everyone can have slightly different results.
- Follow our timing below as the base timing and when your pork chops have an internal temperature of 150 degrees F, they’re ready to eat. If you like your chops cooked a bit more, then add aditional 1 minute of air frying time.
- Don’t overcook your pork chops because they’ll be tough and dry. Once you cook your first batch you’ll know what timing is best for your specific cut of chops and specific model of air fryer.
- Try different seasonings like steak seasoning or curry powder for an international flavor.
- All recipe time and temperature details are in the recipe box below.
Air Fryer Pork Chops
- Three 6 ounce (Three 170 g) pork chops , rinsed & patted dry
- 2 teaspoons (10 ml) olive oil , or other preferred oil
- salt , to taste
- black pepper , to taste
- garlic powder , to taste
- smoked paprika , to taste
- Spray or lightly coat the pork chops with olive oil. Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and smoked paprika.
- Put pork chops in the Air Fryer and cook at 380°F (194°C) for 10-14 minutes, flipping the pork chops at the halfway cooking point.
- Test for desired doneness, and cook a little more if desired until internal temperature is 150°F.
- Allow pork chops to rest for about 3 minutes then serve warm with your favorite side dish.
If your air fryer is preheated or if you are cooking multiple batches, you may need to reduce timing by a few minutes (unless preheating is called for in the recipe).
Why Did Your Chops Come Out Dry?
They were definitely over cooked. It’s probably because they’re the very thin chops and they needed to be cooked a little less. When you try it again, reduce timing a bit until the chops are cooked to your liking. Also, adding a little more oil spray or coating of oil on the chops will help keep them juicy during cooking.
