Boneless Pork Chops

  • 6 center-cut boneless pork chops 4-6 oz each, ~ ¾ inch thick*

Keto Pork Chops Coating

  • cup almond flour**
  • cup grated parmesan or sub additional almond flour
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 2 eggs


How to Air Fry Pork Chops

  • Preheat air fryer to 400°F (200°C).
  • Mix almond flour, grated parmesan, and seasonings together in a shallow dish.
  • In a separate dish, beat eggs.
  • Coat pork chops in egg, and then coating mixture. Transfer coated chops to a plate.
  • Spray both sides of coated chops with cooking spray, then add to the air fryer. Cook 3-4 at a time only. (Don’t overcrowd your air fryer!)
  • Cook boneless pork chops 10 minutes, flipping halfway through. (Thicker chops and bone-in chops may need to cook for longer, 12-20 minutes.)
  • After flipping, check the internal temperature of the pork every 1-2 minutes, until it reaches 145°F (63°C). To check internal temperature, insert meat thermometer straight into the side of the pork chop.
  • Allow to rest 3 minutes before slicing to reveal perfectly blush pink center.

How to Oven Fry Pork Chops

  • Preheat oven to 425°F (210°C).
  • Prepare and coat keto pork chops as described above.
  • Spray both sides of coated pork chops with cooking spray and add to a baking rack on top of a lined baking sheet.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, flipping halfway through. (May need to bake longer for thicker chops or bone-in chops.)
  • Near the end of cook time, check oven fried pork chops temperature as explained above.


*Types & Sizes of Pork Chops: 

Can also make air fryer pork chops with thicker or bone-in pork chops or thicker pork chops, they will just require a longer cook time. Bone-in chops or chops around 2-inches thick can take up to 20 minutes to air fry.
If possible, ask your butcher to cut thinner chops, around ¾-inch thick—they will take around 10 minutes to cook and crisp up more easily!

**Coating Ingredient Substitutions: 

Substitute for almond flour and/or grated parmesan with panko breadcrumbs, crushed cornflakes, or crushed pork rinds.
