How to Air Fry Pork Chops–
Here is a fail-proof guide to air frying your pork chops, with great ease. This is a simple recipe, for Air Fryer Easy BBQ Barbecue-Rubbed Pork Chops.
The first tip that I will give you is to let your pork chops or loins rest at room temperature for at least 30 minutes, before placing them in your air fryer.
Some people swear that you need to preheat the air fryer, which is great if you want to have a nice char on the meat. Otherwise, I tend to just air fry them, and seal in the flavor of the marinade or in this case, rub.
How Long To Air Fry Pork Chops–
The true answer is it depends. They will depend on a few things, the first being how thick your pork chops are. Thicker pork chops will tend to need more time than thinner chops. Pork chops with bones will need a longer cooking time, than boneless.
The other factor is what type of air fryer you are using, all air fryers cook at slightly different times. And the other factor is how crowded is your air fryer basket or tray, both affect cooking time.
The best advice I can give you is to check your meat with a meat thermometer because that is always the best indicator.
