The demand for air fryer recipes is truly overwhelming, so I have decided to start testing recipes for my blog and this is the first one.

It was really incredibly easy and tasty that my family asked me to make these ribs 3 times just this week.

They loved the crispiness of the ribs and the fact that they are so juicy as well as tender.

I am so happy to tell you guys that I will try to share as many recipes as I can just for the air fryer.

I feel like this is the best invention ever. To be perfectly honest with you all, I was one of those skeptical people. I used a conventional oven in the past and loved it.

However, in the case of air fryer, we are talking about a kitchen gadget that is similar to the conventional oven yet so different. Absolutely amazing!

With that being said, I might be just a bit in love with my air fryer. We have been using it literally every single day since my husband decided to surprise me.

Some things we made are pizza, bacon, boiled eggs, fish, fries, wings as well as fish sticks, burgers, etc. Yes, we are killing it here with the air fryer.

My Anna tested making cookies and somewhat healthy energy bars in the air fryer. Even biscuits came out sort of tasty. Okay, I might be just a little excited so I keep blabbering but I am being honest.

An easy and delicious recipe for Airfryer Baby Back Ribs with sauteed cabbage.

Ingredients

  • 1 rack of baby back ribs
  • 1 tbsp. Liquid Smoke
  • 1 tbsp. Oil
  • Seasoning:
  •  2 teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Chili powder
  •  1 teaspoon Onion powder
  •  ½ teaspoon Garlic powder
  •  ½ teaspoon Brown Sugar (add low carb sugar if you are keto such as Truvia Brown Sugar Blend)

Instructions

  1. Pat the ribs dry with kitchen paper towel then rub all over oil and liquid smoke.
  2. Mix all the ingredients for seasoning together. Season the ribs with the spices.
  3. Cut the rack of ribs into sections 4-5 ribs to fit the air fryer.
  4. Cook the ribs in the air fryer for 20 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit, depending on the rib thickens.
  5. After the ribs are done, you may brush some BBQ sauce and pop in the air fryer for 5 more minutes, but it is not necessary. I like brushing just the leftover drippings for more flavorful ribs.

Notes

You can make this Low carb and Keto friendly just by switching a few things. For example, adding low carb sugar. Yes, you may add regular brown sugar as well. It is all about meeting your diet. We are doing low carb so that is why I mention that.

It is so wonderful and weird at the same time that my daughter or son loves food that I loved when I was a kid.

I just love making meals that I love dearly and see how my kids feel about it. Most of the time they really like it.

Easy Pork Schnitzel Recipe

Certain foods or meals we carry from one generation to another, and this one is most definitely foods that I adapted from my family, and my grandparents carried the same meals from their families.

The circle never ends, right?! I am hoping that my kids will do the same.

Anyhow, you can pretty much serve this one with anything that you wish; mashed or boiled potatoes, over pasta and sauce, with rice and vegetables, over salads or perhaps in sandwiches.

Recipe

If you do not eat pork, you can make it with chicken breast or veal.

Since I know that not everyone eats pork and that is perfectly fine. There is always a respectable solution, so everyone could be happy.

So, traditionally Pork Schnitzels are cooked or pan-fried on butter, however, I always use oil. I just do not like cooking on the butter.

We love adding butter to sauces, over potatoes or similar but I do not like frying things in butter.

So here is some step by step instructions:

Place the pork chops between two sheets of film/plastic wrap (resealable freezer bags work well) on a solid, level surface.

Pound the pork with the smooth side of a meat mallet to a thickness of 1/8-inch or you can use your hand or do not have a mallet. Trim any fat from the edges. Add a pinch of salt and black pepper on each pork slice

Whisk the eggs another bowl until well blended, pour Italian breadcrumbs or panko breadcrumbs, whatever you prefer, on the plate. then dredge the pork in the flour mixture one at a time, then dip them into egg mixture to the breadcrumbs.

Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Arrange no more than two pork chops in the skillet at a time, cooking until the meat is golden brown no longer pink in the center, 3 to 4 minutes on each side.

Each cooked schnitzel place on the kitchen paper towel to soak all the unnecessary fat/oil.

Pork Schnitzels
Yield: Serves 4

Pork Schnitzels

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

Easy and tasty Pork Schnitzel Recipe that you may serve over pasta, rice or with potatoes.

Ingredients

  • 6-8 Boneless Pork Loin, sub with boneless pork chop
  • Salt and Ground Black Pepper
  • 2 tbsp. Flour just for dusting; use more if needed (for low carb almond flour)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup Breadcrumbs
  • 1/4-1/2 cup Oil more if needed
  • Serve with Lemon slices and any side dish.

Instructions

  1. Place the pork chops between two sheets of film/plastic wrap (resealable freezer bags work well) on a solid, level surface. Pound the pork with the smooth side of a meat mallet to a thickness of 1/8-inch or you can use your hand or do not have a mallet. Trim any fat from the edges.
  2. Whisk the eggs another bowl until well blended, pour Italian breadcrumbs or panko breadcrumbs, whatever you prefer, on the plate.
  3. Add a pinch of salt, and black pepper on each pork slice, then dredge the pork in the flour mixture one at a time, then dip them into the egg mixture to the breadcrumbs. You can use seasoned breadcrumbs or unseasoned, read labels! If it is unseasoned than just add a bit of salt to season it. Some Panko breadcrumbs are untoasted and unseasoned so just be aware of that. 
  4. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Arrange no more than two pork slices or three if it is smaller in the skillet at a time, cooking until the meat is golden brown no longer pink in the center, 3 to 4 minutes on each side.
  5. When you are frying this make sure you have enough space around it so it can fry properly. I use about 1/4 cup of oil, give or take. 
  6. Each cooked schnitzel place on the kitchen paper towel to soak all the unnecessary fat/oil.
  7. Serve immediately with some lemon. It tastes fantastic if you squeeze just a bit of fresh lemon. You can even add lemon with melted butter and pour it over it.
  8. You would be surprised at how delicious it tastes. Leftovers place in the glass container or any that are using with fitted cover. Eat it within 5 days.

Notes

You may use chicken for this recipe if you are not consuming pork.

Use gluten-free flour/bread crumbs for the GF option.

You could make this in your air fryer.

Lemon and Herb Roast Chicken

Lemon and Herb Roast Chicken

  Roast chicken with potatoes is my favorite meal. It reminds me greatly of my grandma and Sundays that I spend in her house. She would make this almost every single time when I come to visit. I believe that it takes me back to that time of my life. With that being said, […]

Chicken Fajita Bowl

Chicken Fajita Bowl

 

It’s been a while since I posted a real dinner recipe, so I‘ve decided to post this fast and delicious dish that everyone loves. Chicken Fajita Bowl is amazing! UsuallyI make cauliflower rice for myself, but the family loves eating rice and beans or just plain rice with Chicken Fajita. 

To be honest both of my boys strongly dislike cooked peppers and onion so I make only chicken for them. They love raw peppers and onion but cooked veggies are a big no-no. With that being said I cook chicken and serve raw veggies on the side just for those two troublemakers.

This meal makes at least twice a month on our table. Sometimes I would make bowls like this and sometimes I just serve on the big tray with warmed up tortillas so everyone can make their own wraps and toppings. I mean easy peasy, right? 

 You can check Chicken Fajita HERE 

I used a nearly same recipe that I have used before and It was really satisfying and delicious. If you don’t want to bother adding your own seasoning just use store bought. I usually have everything in my pantry and fridge so I just mix it myself, but I have used a store bought seasonings thousand times. There is no judging here whatsoever. We try to prepare and serve a homemade meal but that doesn’t necessarily mean that everything has to be from the scratch. 

 

I hope you guys like this recipe, and if you do happen to make it please tag me on Instagram @sandraseasycooking and use hashtag #sandraseasycooking so I am able to see your delicious creations and share with my readers as well.

Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 4
Author Sandra | Sandra's Easy Cooking

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons Oil (I used Spanish Olive Oil)
  • 1 boneless skinless Chicken Breast cut into thin strips (usually two pieces in one pack unless it's a family pack)
  • 1/2 Red Bell Pepper julienned
  • 1/2 Green Bell Pepper julienned
  • 1/2 Orange Bell Pepper julienned
  • 1/2 Yellow Bell Pepper julienned
  • 1/2 Onion diced or sliced

Seasoning & Marinade

  • 1 tablespoon Oil l (I used Spanish Olive Oil)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt or to taste
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Spanish Smoked Sweet Paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

Instructions

  1. In a large freezer bag, combine 1 tablespoon oil, lemon juice, and seasonings; add the chicken, close the bag then shake a bit to coat the chicken. Refrigerate for one hour. (If you will not cook it right away freeze it. You may leave it in the fridge for up to 24 hrs.)
  2. In a large skillet, saute peppers and onion in 1 tablespoon of oil until tender but still crisp. Season it with a pinch of a salt, stir, then remove on the plate.
  3. In the same skillet, cook chicken over medium-high heat for about 6 to 7 minutes or until no longer pink. Return pepper mixture to a pan and combine them with chicken. Cook for about 2 to 3 more minutes. Spoon filling down the center of tortillas; fold in half. Serve with cheese, taco sauce, salsa, guacamole and sour cream.
  4. You can serve it over rice, or use Cauliflower rice. 

    Saute on a bit of oil, add salt to taste. This is perfect for a fajita bowl.

Recipe Notes

  • You can use beef for this recipe
  • You do not have to use all the peppers listen to the ingredients. It is always more appealing when you have more than one color in your meal, but that is perfectly okay if you use two types of peppers. Also, green, red, yellow and orange give you different flavor and sweetness so I would encourage you to use all of them if possible. 
  • You can meal prep this and keep it in your fridge for up to 5 days, although DO NOT keep cooked cauliflower rice in your fridge. Make it the moment you gonna eat it. It got the nastiest smells if you leave it in the fridge. I make it 5 minutes before I will serve my meal. 
  • You can pack cooked peppers and chicken in the freezer bag, make portion size bags. Just thaw and maybe give a quick stir fry for a minute or two on medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil. You just want to really heat through and it is always nice to refresh it. You may keep it in the freezer for up to a month. It will be probably safe to go over a month I just never went over it so I won't recommend if I am not doing it.
