I sometimes feel a bit guilty eating pork chops. My dog is named Pork Chop. My son named him and we all thought it was adorable. His nickname has become “Chops” because although he is a little guy that looks cute and cuddly, he really 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 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.
2021 update: I now use the COSORI Smart Air Fryer Oven and I love it!

The most amazing thing about this recipe is how very little fuss there is. 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!
Gourmet Spice Blend
The special ingredient in this recipe is the roasted vegetable blend that I use. I can’t say enough about this seasoning blend! I use it on my seasoned sweet potatoes also, and that particular recipe has been my most popular on the blog to date. 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.
Not to worry if you don’t have the seasoning 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
Feel free to use thin or thick boneless pork chops for this recipe. Keep in mind, for a thicker cut you will need to add a bit more time to the cooking process. If you prefer pork tenderloin, the brown sugar glaze goes great on that, as well.
