WHY ARE MY AIR FRYER PORK CHOPS TOUGH?
Pork chops become tough simply because they are overcooked. Pork chops being a lean-cut meat mean that it can be cooked quickly… this would also mean that it can be overcooked easily.
Here's a little secret to avoid tough pork chops: use a probe thermometer, when your pork chop is at 145°F, it's going to be juicy, tender, and of course with a touch of pink inside.
Keep in mind, not all pork chops have the same cook time. The thinner it is, the quicker it cooks.

Set the air fryer temperature to 370°F and cook the pork chops for 4 minutes. Flip, and air fry again at 370°F for another 4 minutes or until the pork chops are fully cooked.
