  • 4 Pork Chops* (about 1 ½ -2 inches thick)
  • 2 Tablespoons Canola Oil (or other neutral oil)

Spice Mix

  • 2 teaspoons Sea Salt Flakes (or 1 teaspoon coarse salt, ½ teaspoon table salt) or to taste
  • ½ teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Sage (I use rubbed sage)
  • 1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Paprika
  • ½ teaspoon Onion Powder
  • ½ teaspoon Garlic Powder


  1. Place the pork chops onto a large tray. Coat the pork chops with the oil.

  2. In a small bowl, add the sea salt flakes, black pepper, dried sage, brown sugar, paprika, onion powder and garlic powder. Mix well.

  3. Sprinkle the spice mix onto both sides of the pork chops until evenly coated.

  4. Preheat the air fryer by heating it to 400°F for 5 minutes.

  5. After the air fryer has heated, Put the pork chops in the air fryer, fitting them in but not overlapping (cook in batches if you have more than your basket can hold at one time) and cook at 400°F for 12 minutes*, flipping them at 6 minutes. If your air fryer is too small, air fry them in two batches.

  6. When cook time is finished, check the internal temperature with a meat thermometer. You want the temp to read 140°F.

  7. Take the pork chops out of the air fryer and place on a serving dish. Let rest a couple minutes before serving.

Recipe Notes

*Thicker or thinner pork chops will take longer or a shorter amount of time to cook. I think it is good to cook one, then make sure it comes out how you like.
