Pork Chops are one of those great and versatile foods that are easy to become a favorite. This Air Fryer Pork Chops recipe consists of a great balance of sweet and salty. Together, the brown sugar, garlic and paprika are a powerful combination worth trying. As far as side dishes go, we like to accompany these with a cauliflower mash or potato mash, as well as asparagus or green beans.

The best thing about this recipe is that you can make it with any variation of pork chops you like, like bone-in pork chops or thinner ones. They all make a great option for this recipe. Most importantly, your Air Fryer will cook these to perfection in no time, giving you a well-balanced meal that is also delicious. Make sure to make an extra batch to keep in the freezer and re-heat later, you’ll probably want a second serving! If you do try it and love it, let us know in the comments!

 2 Pork chops (preferably 1 1/2 inch thick)
 2 tbsp Brown sugar
 1 tbsp Paprika
 1 ½ tsp Salt
 1 ½ tsp Black pepper
 1 tsp Ground mustard
 ½ tsp Onion powder
 ¼ tsp Garlic powder
 2 tbsp Olive oil
 (Optional) Fresh rosemary sprigs, for garnish

1

Rinse pork chops under running water. Pat with a paper towel to dry.

In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, paprika, salt, black pepper, ground mustard, onion, and garlic powder.

3

Lay the pork chops on a wide plate or a small baking sheet and coat them with olive oil.

4

Rub the brown sugar mixture into the meat and allow it to sit for a while.

5

Preheat your Air Fryer at 400°F for 5 minutes.

6

To avoid a sticky basket, place parchment paper liners like these on your basket or rack. This will prevent the sugar from sticking into your rack or basket, also saving you clean-up time.

Place the pork chops into the basket or rack, and cook at 400 °F for 12 minutes, flipping them after 6 minutes.

Transfer to a serving dish and garnish with rosemary sprig.
