HOW TO AIR FRY RIBS
Honestly, it is super easy.
And having tried numerous ways to air fry ribs myself. I found the best option to be the one that I’m about to share with you today.
I’m telling you, it is simple and saves a lot of time and hassle that some other recipes may call for.
Such as cooking them first in tinfoil, I find that this method really is not necessary.
The method that I prefer, is to remove the skin from the ribs as much as possible with a knife.
This is done by sliding a knife under the membrane and over the bone enough to loosen the skin so you then can pull it away. It is not the easiest thing to do, so do your best.
Then you will simply cut the ribs into two piece sections and coat with salt and pepper. Before placing in the air fryer, to cook for 15 minutes till golden brown.
Once the ribs have turned Golden brown (as seen in the picture below)
Then remove the ribs from the fryer with a pair of tongs and coat each side of the ribs with your Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce.
It is really that simple guys.
Then airfryer once more for the remaining 10 minutes!
You will then have tender, juicy, sweet and tangy ribs.
CAN YOU AIR FRY BBQ CHICKEN
Heck yes, I do it all the time. Plus the cleanup is much easier than say doing it in the oven.
WHAT TEMP TO AIR FRY RIBS
If your doing this in the oven on the Gotham Steel Crisper? 400f will do the trick!
If your doing this in most tabletop air fryers than follow the inscutions on your fryer.
My fryer goes by minutes and so I can cook these ribs for 25 minutes and they will be done.
If you have never used an air fryer, now is the time. They are more affordable now than ever.
Plus they are also a much healthier way to cook food, since the fat drains away and it is never deep fried.
WHAT IS AIR FRYING?
Air frying is a healthy alternative to deep frying food. And most air fryers have been marketed in a way to make you think that this cooking technique is best for those who make a lot of those at home.
Well I am here to tell you that you do not need to just be a deep fried food lover to want to use this cooking method. RATHER if you love to bake food, then this is also a great alternative. And in most cases is much healthier than traditional baking methods.
Because air frying mimics deep fried foods but uses little to no oil.
So you can enjoy all the same deep – fried or baked foods that we have all come to know and love again but in a healthy way.
JUST LOOK AT THOSE TENDER JUICY RIBS!
