I sometimes feel a bit guilty eating pork chops. Those who know me understand why. This is a picture of my dog….Pork Chop.
My son came up with his name and we all thought it was adorable. His nickname has become “Chops” because although he looks cute and cuddly, he wants to eat your face off 😉
I never imagined that it would make me pause each time I’m about to make pork chops for dinner. Maybe I should have named him Chocolate – it might prevent me from craving it!
The great thing about this recipe is there is very little fuss. It’s a quick blending of 2 ingredients, brown sugar and vegetable seasoning blend. The only other thing to do is coat the pork chops with olive oil and then use the seasoning mix as a rub. So simple!
The air fryer I use is the OMORC Air Fryer XL . I have been very happy with it. It has been going strong since I received it for Christmas in 2018. I have used it almost every day for cooking or reheating since I got it, so I’d have to say it is pretty durable.
My special ingredient in this recipe is the roasted vegetable blend that I use. If you don’t have the blend on hand, you can make something similar on your own:
1/4 tsp. garlic salt
1/4 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. oregano
1/4 tsp. celery seed
I love this blend! I use it on my Air Fryer Sweet Potatoes Recipe, also. I must say, that has been my most popular recipe to date, and I am positive the vegetable seasoning blend is the reason. Trust me, it’s fantastic. I use it on all my veggies, chicken and, pork, too.
Air Fryer Glazed Pork Chops
For this recipe, I am using thin cut pork chops. If you want to use thick chops or bone-in, allow for a bit longer cooking time. If you prefer pork tenderloin, this glaze goes great on that, as well.
Please leave a comment to let me know how the pork chops turned out or snap a photo of the air fryer pork chops and tag @coolbeanliving on Instagram. I’d love to see!
