Tips & Tricks

  • Always preheat the Air Fryer so it can seal around the pieces, keeping them nice and juicy!
  • Cut the pork into evenly sized pieces so they cook at the same rate.
  • For the best, juiciest pork bite, test the internal temperature of one piece. It should read 145°F.
  • Leftovers will keep in the refrigerator for 3-5 days, or they can be frozen in an airtight container for 2-3 months. Reheat in the microwave or air fryer.

    I think I’d bribe them first. I thought they were a bit too dry. However, these chops only 3/4” too so maybe a less time.

  2. For anyone reading, fry your pork till it is 165. Never eat it pink, as undercooked or “medium rare” pork is not safe. Undercooked pork Is a transmitter of hepatitis C. Hepatitis C is not curable.

    1. Hi Colton, many of us grew up at a time when our parents cooked all things pork until well done and tough. Today pork is safe to consume cooked to medium (145° F), leaving it just a little bit pink in the middle and tender & juicy. I’ve worked closely with the pork board, 165°F would be well done.
