This is one of the greatest recipes, I have made thus far in the air fryer, they might be better than chicken wings. (And those are amazing). They were so good, my youngest son, asked me if I grilled them because they were so amazing.
These were fall off the bone tender, and they had all of the sauce, which made them gooey and just pure heaven to eat. Ribs are one of my kid’s favorite dinners to eat, whether take out or just at home. These are good enough to be served in a restaurant, but easy enough for you to make a home. And once you get the hang of them, you will keep on making them, because they are that good and easy.
There are several awesome things about making ribs in your air fryer.
They are almost mess-free, after all, you just have to wash the basket and tongs, so you don’t have a lot of clean up.
They are tender and fall off the bone delicious. This is by far the easiest way to make them, and the recipe is almost foolproof. This is going to be one of those recipes, that you come back to and change it, but use the same directions. So, pin it, or print it, cause trust me, once you have these you will keep on making them.
The time is amazing, you literally, spend almost no time basting them, they just make themselves, the only thing, I ask is that you flip them once and baste them once.
The easiest ribs to work with are baby back ribs, but you can use spare ribs or country style. You might have to adjust the time for them because they are bigger ribs.
You can separate your ribs, in order for them to fit in your air fryer, since every air fryer is different, just cut them, to make them work in your air fryer.
I used a paper towel to remove the membrane, which is the white tissue part on the back. It’s rather easy to remove, just use a knife and paper towel to remove it.
Set the temperature to 400 degrees F (air fryer setting) for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, use a meat thermometer to check and make sure the ribs are fully cooked.
If not add a few minutes, until the internal temperature shows that the ribs are cooked.
