Easy Air Fryer Ribs
For the amount of time you’ll spend cooking these baby back ribs in the air fryer, you will be absolutely amazed at how well they turn out. For those of you who never thought to air fry ribs, this is your chance to see how to cook ribs in the air fryer.
No, they aren’t slow cooked on an outdoor firepit for hours – nothing can beat that – but they are darn good for just 30 minutes.
- 1 rack of ribs 11/2 to 2 pounds, 1kg
- 2 tablespoons dry rub
- 1/2 cup bbq sauce 4 oz
Preheat the air fryer to 380 degrees F (195 C), for 5 minutes.
Peel off the silver membrane from the back of the ribs. Season the ribs with the dry rub on both sides.
Cut the rack of ribs in half to fit in the air fryer. Place meat side down in the air fryer tray and cook for 20 minutes, turning the ribs over halfway through the cooking.
After the 20 minutes is up, pull out the basket and baste the ribs on both sides with BBQ sauce. Return them, meat side up, to the air fryer. Crank up the heat to 390 degrees F (200 degrees C) and cook for an additional 3-5 minutes, or until they are a bit charred on top.. Brush with additional BBQ sauce and serve.
