You will love these easy keto pork chops. They are breaded in a pork rind crust and you will not believe how crispy they get! These keto pork chops can be made in the air fryer or the oven and they are zero net carbs!
These keto Pork Chops are similar to my pork rind chicken nuggets. I used the same simple breading recipe for both because it is so easy to make and super delicious!
For this recipe I used 2 inch thick pork chops because that is what comes in my Butcher Box subscription. These take about 18-20 minutes to cook. If your pork chops are thinner, you would cook them for a shorter time. 1 inch pork chops take about 12 minutes.
Pork Rind “Breading” – Super crispy and zero net carbs!
To start this easy pork chop recipe, we need to get our breading station ready. This involves finely crushing the pork rinds in the food processor, adding the seasonings, and beating 2 eggs.
The seasonings in the pork rind breading are salt, smoked paprika, garlic powder, and onion powder. The pork rinds crush up in seconds in the food processor and then we mix in the seasonings and put them in a shallow bowl or plate.
The ingredients amounts are in the recipe card below.
Now we just coat each pork chop in the beaten egg, coat them in the crushed pork rinds, and put them in the air fryer or on a sheet tray. Easy peasy!
How long to cook the pork chops?
Place each one in the air fryer and we’re going to cook these for 10 minutes on each side at 400F.
My pork chops were thick so if yours are thinner, they would need less time.
They come out super crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. You are going to love how easy this air fryer pork chops recipe is!
