What Are St. Louis Ribs?
If you have never purchased ribs, when you go to the meat department it can be a bit overwhelming. There are several types of ribs available, from Baby Back, Spare Ribs, Country Ribs and St. Lous Ribs. All of them are available at your local grocery store.
St. Louis Ribs are technically spare ribs; most grocery stores actually help you prepare them by removing the sternum and the cartridge. What you have left is the St. Louis-Style Rib.
Ingredients In Air Fryer St. Louis Style Spare Ribs
Today, I made a simple seasonings for the ribs you will need:
- St. Louis-Style Ribs
- Smoked Paprika
- Black Pepper
- Onion Powder
- Garlic Powder
- Ground Mustard
How To Make Air Fryer St. Louis Style Spare Ribs
Start by preheating your air fryer to 380 degrees F, air fryer setting, for 5 minutes. Then in a small bowl, mix the paprika, salt black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and ground mustard. (this will be your dry rub) Rub this mixture all over the ribs.
Add your ribs to the Air Fryer Basket or on the Air Fryer Tray (bottom shelf), be sure not to crowd the basket. Set the temperature to 380 degrees F, air fryer setting, for 15-20 minutes.
Can you cook frozen ribs in air fryer?
If you have frozen Baby Back, St. Louis, or Spare Ribs, you can easily make them in the air fryer. Set the temperature to 400 degrees F, air fryer setting, and air fry for about 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes, remove the ribs, which will be semi-defrosted at this point, and add some dry rub or BBQ sauce on top of them. Continue to air fry at 380 degrees F, air fryer setting for another 10-15 minutes.
Continue to baste the ribs with either BBQ sauce or the dry rub, as they continue to cook.
What To Serve With Air Fryer St. Louis Style Spare Ribs
I will tell you when it comes to ribs; you can make them as an appetizer and serve them along with other appetizers.
Or if you want to serve them as a meal, I go with the old-fashioned items of Mashed Potatoes, Macaroni & Cheese, Cornbread, Baked Beans, and Coleslaw.
How to Store Air Fryer St. Louis Style Spare Ribs
If you have any leftover Air Fryer St. Louis Style, Spare Ribs let them cool to room temperature and then place them into an airtight container. Place the container into the refrigerator.
They will last for about 2 to 3 days.
To Reheat Ribs In the Air Fryer
If you want to reheat either homemade or store-bought ribs in the air fryer, place them into the basket, and then set the temperature to 300 degrees F, air fryer setting, and reheat until warmed through.
I would rub some BBQ sauce on the ribs to add some flavor to the leftover ribs before air frying.
