Tip from the Author

"They are perfect to make ahead of time, too. To reheat, cook 5 minutes in the air fryer at 120°F."


Preheat air fryer to 400° according to manufacturer’s instructions; set cook time to 10 minutes. (Add 35 minutes for preheating if your air fryer doesn’t include preheat function.)

Mix pork, brown sugar, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, fennel, and pepper flakes in a bowl until combined. Divide pork mixture into 8 portions and form into patties.

Spritz patties with nonstick spray and place in air fryer basket.

Cook patties until brown and a thermometer inserted into centers registers at least 160°F, 10 minutes. Serve patties warm.
