Help, Y'all...the ones from the Q that's called the Ribeye of the Chops-?

My fryer is the Square one from Paula Deen.

How do you season when they are frozen?  Cooking temp? Turning?

LOL!  Can ya just come here and do it, and let me watch you? LOL

But really,  HelpSmiley LOLHeart

Don't have an air fryer but when I pan fry, I often wait until I turn the chop to season it.  Meat takes the flavor better. JMO!  Good luck with them!

 

You can stop the air fryer can't you?  I've seen them take out fries to shake them up!

I have an idea.....thaw them first.  Pork can be tricky; you want it well done.  It's hard to judge cooking time if you start with frozen meat.  Nuke it for 5 minutes, no big deal.

Thank you so much y'all.  Believe I will wait now, and see if I get more answers.  But, really, thanks y'all.

We will just get Chinese or some other take out now.

I just got a wild hair but waited sorta of late to get started of 

trying to cook something.

I would never try to cook rock hard frozen meat in an air fryer, as it is sure to be an ultimate fail, and a total waste of a good piece of meat.

I think the days of well done pork are way over. That was many years ago. Now pork should have a bit of pinkish in the middle If you want pork that isn't like shoe leather.

Internal  temp should be at 145* after sitting for a few minutes which is the equivalent of medium rare.
