Why Make Pork Chops and Rice With Ninja Speedi

With the Ninja Speedi Rapid Cooker & Air Fryer, you can make a good pork chop and rice dish in one shot.

Ninja Speedi is such a unique air fryer type because its Speedi Meals feature allows you to make “steamed then air fried” meals in one shot with its dual layer rapid cooker functionality.

Here, you’ll have the rice and vegetables on the pot and the pork chops on the crisper tray.

The pork chops gets air fried to keep the juices inside while it sears the outside, and the bbq sauce gets caramelized.

And the rice packs extra flavours because, as the pork chop steams in the beginning, the pork fat and some juices and sauces would fall from the crisper tray to the inner pot, infusing more flavours into the rice.

Pull out the legs of the Ninja Speedi Crisper Tray. Place the Crisper Tray on the elevated position in the pot.

Season the pork chops with salt and pepper. Brush pork chops with BBQ sauce.

Travelling Foodie Tip: If you don’t like barbecue sauce (or don’t have it), you can use a different sauce you have at home. You can also just keep the pork chop sauceless.

Close the Ninja Speedi lid and turn the unit on. Flip the switch to Rapid Cooker and select Speedi Meals.

Set the temperature to 350F (170C or 180C) and time to 10 minutes.

Press Start. Note: It takes around 5-10 minutes to build steam before crisping.

Fluff rice and plate with pork chops.

Can You Use This Ninja Speedi Pork Chop & Rice Recipe on the Ninja Combi?

With the Ninja Combi All-in-One Multicooker, Oven and Air Fryer, you might be wondering if this Ninja Speedi Pork Chop recipe will work for the Ninja Combi as well.

I don’t have a Ninja Combi, but, on researching the functionalities and customer feedbacks who have both, here are my findings:

  • Ninja Combi seems to be just an updated version of the Ninja Speedi.
  • The Combi basically has the same features as Ninja Speedi.
  • It’s just that Ninja Combi is bigger and in a oven-style, loading from the front instead of the top.
  • Instead of Speedi Meals, you use Combi Meals function.
  • The Speedi has inner pot and crisper tray and the Ninja Combi has a bottom pan and bake tray for the two-level cooking.
  • Whereas the Speedi is good cooking meals for 1-2 people, the Combi is good for families and parties.
  • Customers who have used both Speedi and Combi say the recipes are interchangeable because of the same setup and features.

So it seems like Ninja Speedi Recipes can be Ninja Combi Recipes.

If you’ve tried this pork chop recipe in both Speedi and Combi, let me know your experience.
