For the Thick Pork Chops:

  • 2 thick-cut pork chops
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and black pepper to taste

Optional Gravy:

  • 1 cup chicken or beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • Salt and black pepper to taste


Preparing the Thick Pork Chops:

  1. Preheat Air Fryer:
    • Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Seasoning Mix:
    • In a small bowl, mix together garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, dried thyme, salt, and black pepper.
  3. Preparing Pork Chops:
    • Rub the pork chops with olive oil, ensuring they are well-coated. Sprinkle the seasoning mix on both sides of each pork chop, pressing the seasoning into the meat.
  4. Arranging in Air Fryer:
    • Place the seasoned pork chops in the air fryer basket, making sure they are not touching.
  5. Air Frying:
    • Air fry the pork chops for 20-25 minutes, flipping halfway through the cooking time, or until the internal temperature reaches 145°F (63°C) for medium doneness.

Optional Gravy:

  1. Deglazing the Pan:
    • If you want to make gravy, remove the pork chops from the air fryer. Deglaze the pan by adding chicken or beef broth and scraping up any flavorful bits.
  2. Making the Gravy:
    • In a small bowl, whisk together flour with a bit of water to create a slurry. Whisk the slurry into the broth and cook until the gravy thickens. Season with salt and black pepper.
