Str Fry


  • Coat Air Fryer Basket with a thin coat of Oil. (See my article on How to Prepare and Season Air Fryer Basket.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together egg white, salt and pepper until foamy.  Slice pork chops into cutlet pieces, leaving a little on the bones and pat dry.  Add pork chop pieces to egg white mixture.  Coat thoroughly.  Marinate for at least 20 minutes.
  • Transfer pork chops a large bowl and add Potato Starch.  Dredge the pork chops through the Potato Starch thoroughly.  Shake off pork and place into prepared Air Fryer Basket.  Lightly spray pork with Oil.
  • Cook at 360 degrees for 9 minutes, shaking the basket often and spraying with oil between shakes.  Cook an additional 6 minutes at 400 degrees, or until the pork is brown and crispy.

Stir Fry

  • Slice Jalapeños thin and remove seeds.  Chop scallions.  Place in bowl and set aside.
  • Heat wok or skillet until screaming hot.  Add oil, Jalapeño peppers, Scallions, salt and pepper and stir fry for about a minute.  Add air fried pork pieces to the wok or skillet and toss them with the Jalapeño and Scallions.  Stir Fry pork for another minute, making sure they become coated with the hot oil and vegetables.
