Air Fryer Pork Chop Tips
How do you cook pork chops without drying them out?
To cook pork chops without drying them out, coat them in a breading or flour mixture, which seals in moisture. Also, be sure not to overcook them. The internal temperature should be 145°.
How do you make pork chops tender?
To make pork chops tender, you can soak them in milk for 2-6 hours before coating with the flour mixture. The calcium and lactic acid in the milk interacts with the enzymes of the meat and helps break them down.
What do I do if my pork chops are tough?
If your pork chops turn out tough, slice the meat very thinly and add it to your next stir-fry or casserole. The extra liquid and fat in these dishes will help slightly rehydrate the meat.
