How to Cook Ribs in an Air Fryer
What Do You Need?
To cook ribs in an air fryer, you’ll need: an air fryer, a rack of ribs, a marinade of your choice, a basting brush, aluminum foil, and a thermometer.
How to Prepare Your Ribs
Start by preparing your ribs. If you have a full rack, use a sharp knife to cut it into individual pieces or ribs. If you’re using a pre-cut rack of ribs, then you can skip this step. Place the ribs in a container and pour your marinade over them. Make sure they are fully coated and then let them sit for at least an hour.
How to Cook the Ribs
Once the ribs have been marinating for at least an hour, place them in the air fryer. Set the air fryer to 375°F and cook for 10-15 minutes, flipping them halfway through. Once they are done, you can brush them with more marinade if desired. Then, wrap them in aluminum foil and let them sit for 10 minutes.
Checking the Temperature
When the ribs have been cooking for 10-15 minutes, use a thermometer to check the internal temperature. The ribs should reach an internal temperature of 165°F before you can consider them safe to eat. If they do not reach this temperature, then cook them for a few more minutes until they do.
Serving the Ribs
Once the ribs have reached the desired temperature, you can remove them from the air fryer and serve. Enjoy your ribs with sides of your choice, such as coleslaw, potato salad, or baked beans. You can also serve them with your favorite barbecue sauce for extra flavor.
