Unless you missed it, yesterday on the blog we showed you how to make your own homemade Keto Pork Rinds instead of buying your own. Our Keto Pork Rinds were made using the leftover fat from pork belly.

But today we want to show you how to put your Keto Pork Rinds to good use and make Keto Breaded Pork Chops in the air fryer.

One of our popular air fryer recipes here at recipethis.com is our air fryer breaded pork chops. We can see why everyone loves them so much. After all, what is there not to love about breading some cheap, yet tasty pork chops in breadcrumbs and then cooking them to crisp perfection in the air fryer????

But we also appreciate that we have a big low carb following. With general low carb, Whole30, Paleo and Keto followers, we wanted to offer a Plan B, that doesn’t involve buying expensive organic products in order to bread some pork chops.

Well this is it!

Our Keto Breaded Pork Chops involve first making our Keto Pork Rinds and then breading the pork chops in them before cooking them in the air fryer.

It is incredibly simple and you only have a couple of steps to do. It is in fact no harder to make Keto Breaded Pork Chops than regular breaded pork chops.

Firstly, you need your Keto Pork Rinds. You can follow our step by step recipe to make your own homemade Keto Pork Rinds, or alternatively you can purchase them from US Wellness Meats sells quality grassland meat products – Visit us Online!.

What we did, was make the Keto Pork Rinds the day before, then left them in the fridge overnight before making our Keto Breaded Pork Chops in the air fryer for lunch the day after. You can your Keto Pork Chops on the same day.

Then when you’re ready to make your breaded pork chops in the air fryer, simply preheat your air fryer to 180c/360f and get your ingredients out.

I had a workstation with my pork chops, pork rinds, pork fat and salt and pepper.

That was everything. There were no strange ingredients just these 5 standard items.

You start by seasoning your pork chops on both sides with salt and pepper. This is very important as otherwise your pork will be very bland.

Next you brush your pork chops with your pork fat. This creates that sticky layer that every breaded food needs. It is your alternative to egg and is extra sticky and perfect for the pork rinds.

For the final step you add pork rinds all over your pork chops until you have an even coating. Then the Keto Pork Chops are cooked to perfection in the air fryer. We love how the air fryer gives your breaded pork chops such a crispy finish.

Don’t Want To Make Your Own Keto Pork Rinds?

Keto Breaded Pork Chops In The Air Fryer

Even though I loved making my own homemade Keto Pork Rinds in the air fryer, what disappointed me, is how little pork rinds I had from one pack of pork belly meat.

To bread just one pork chop I need to use one full pack of pork belly fat. If you are feeding 6 of you for dinner, then this is a LOT of pork belly that you need to purchase.

That’s why I recommend US Wellness Meats as a cheap source of quality pork rinds for making Keto Pork Chops with.

Are Keto Breaded Pork Chops As Good As The REAL Thing?

I must say that I make a terrible candidate for Keto because I HATE a lot of fat. I hate sour cream, double cream, lard and so forth and decided to skip these breaded pork chops.

But Dominic made me try them and I must admit the breading tastes just like real breading and I was shocked by just how nice they are. So maybe I am more Keto than I thought I was!

Instructions

  • Preheat the air fryer to 180c/360f.
  • Place your pork chops on a chopping board and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Brush pork fat over the pork chops to coat it enough so that the pork rinds stick to it.
  • Load them up with pork rinds and make sure they are well covered.
  • Cook for 10 minutes at 180c/360f in the air fryer.

Notes

I recommend that you avoid using the grill pan for the air fryer for this recipe. This is because keeping the pork chops low, avoids the mass amount of smoke that is generated from such a fatty dish.
 
I recommend that you buy Pork Rinds as it is cheaper than making your own homemade pork rinds. But if you have a lot of spare pork fat, then make your own. It just depends what meat you have in. Some Keto pork rinds come whole others are already blended ready for breadcrumbs.
 
If yours come whole just blend them in the blender or food processor. I used the fat from cooking my pork rinds as the binding force. This was just fat that would end up in the bin otherwise. You could also use duck fat or lard. But don’t use butter or olive oil as it doesn’t work.
