How To Make Air Fryer BBQ Pork Chops
To ensure your pork chops turn out perfectly, start by spraying the air fryer basket with nonstick spray or brushing it with oil. This step prevents any sticking. Next, season the pork chops with salt and pepper or any other seasonings you prefer. Don’t forget to rub the seasonings in and ensure both sides of the chops are seasoned evenly.
Place the seasoned pork chops in the basket of the air fryer and cook them at 400 degrees for 8 minutes, flipping them halfway through the cooking time. Afterward, brush the tops of the pork chops with BBQ sauce and continue cooking for an additional 2 minutes. Flip the chops over, brush more sauce on top, and cook for an additional 3 minutes.
To ensure they are fully cooked, check the internal temperature of the pork chops using a meat thermometer. They should register at least 145 degrees. If not, return the basket to the air fryer for a few more minutes of cooking.
Use a spatula to remove the pork chops from the air fryer basket and place them on a serving plate.
Here are a few handy tips to make your cooking experience even better:
- Remember to season both sides of the pork chops and rub the seasoning in thoroughly.
- Apply the BBQ sauce at the end of the cooking time to avoid any sticky mess in the air fryer.
- Use a pastry brush to evenly apply the BBQ sauce to the pork chops.
