Juicy, tender and delicious air fryer pork chops.


  • 2 center-cut, bone-in pork chops, 1 1/2 – 2 inches thick
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 12 tablespoons olive oil


  1. Preheat air fryer to 400°F for 5 minutes.
  2. Rinse pork chops with cool water and pat dry completely with a paper towel.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients.
  4. Coat the pork chops with olive oil and rub in the mix. Rub it in well and liberally. Use almost all of the rub mix for the 2 pork chops.
  5. Cook pork chops in air fryer on the air fry setting at 400°F for 12-14 minutes or until internal temperature of 140°F. Flip pork chops over after 6 minutes.


Air fryer temperatures can vary. Remove pork chops when internal temperature reaches 140°F. The carryover cooking will bring the temp up to 145°F.
