Air Fryer pork chops

Pork chops are one of my new favorite meals to make in the air fryer because of how easy and quickly they cook. The best part is how juicy my meat turns out. Plus, the seasonings give the pork chops the perfect crust.

What are the health benefits of pork chops?

Pork chops are a good source of thiamin, niacin, selenium and vitamin B6. Plus, they are rich in vitamin B12, potassium, iron, magnesium and zinc.

How to make this recipe

1 – Whisk together the brown sugar, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, and salt and pepper together in a large mixing bowl.

2 – Remove the pork chops from any packaging and pat them dry.

3 – Place pork chops one at a time in the mixture, coating the pork chop all over.

4 – Once all the pork chops have been coated in the seasonings, place them in the air fryer basket. Depending on the size of your air fryer you may have to cook in batches. I try not to overcrowd my basket when cooking as it can prevent food from cooking properly.

5 – Close the air fryer and turn on to 370 degrees and cook for 12-14 minutes, flipping halfway through. Cooking times will vary depending on the thickness of your pork chops. Pork chops are considered cooked through and safe to eat when the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees.

Let them rest for about 5 minutes, then enjoy!

Different air fryer brands may cook at different rates, so be sure to keep on eye on your food so it doesn’t burn.
