  • 2 bone-in pork chops (1 1/4" to 1 1/2" thick, about 1 lb each)
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp butter (melted; or olive oil)

For the mustard chimichurri sauce

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp whole grain Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 Tbsp fresh parsley (finely chopped)
  • 1 Tbsp fresh cilantro (finely chopped)
  • 1 Tbsp red onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 clove garlic (pressed)
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt (plus more to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper (plus more to taste)


  • To prepare chimichurri sauce, place all of the ingredients in a small bowl and mix well. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • Pat the pork chops dry with paper towels. Make small cuts along the fatty edge about 1-2 inches apart. Season with salt and pepper on both sides. Transfer to a plate and refrigerate uncovered for a few hours or overnight.
  • Straight from the fridge, place the pork chops on the air fryer rack and brush with melted butter. Cook at 400F (or 410F if your air fryer goes that high) for about 20 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 140F. Do not flip or rotate.
  • Remove pork chops from the air fryer, let rest for 5 minutes and serve with chimichurri sauce and your favorite side dish.
