CAN YOU AIR FRY RIBS

Absolutely, having an air fryer allows you to have BBQ ribs throughout the year. 

And is one of my favorite methods now to cooking ribs. 

So if you like the taste of BBQ ribs… you’re going to LOVE THIS RIB RECIPE!

Yes of course you can actually heat up the grill outside and bbq some RIBS or bake them in the oven. 

Or you can air fry it and save yourself the hassle and mess.

And trust me, your family will not know the difference from these and oven baked ribs.

CAN I USE ANY KIND OF AIR FRYER?

YES! 

I currently have and use the T-fal ActiFry Fryer

Also on occasion I will use my Gotham Steel Fryer as well. *Goes direct in the oven.

Both tools work well for this recipe!

HOW TO AIR FRY RIBS

preparing the bbq ribs for the air fryer

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.

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.

AIR FRIED RIBS

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 RIBS

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? 400 f will do the trick!

If your doing this in most tabletop air fryers then the general rule of thumb is to reduce the suggested temperature by 25°F or 3.889 C than what you would do in your oven and then cut the cook time by about 20%

AIR FRYER COOKING TIMES

I use the T-Fal Active air fryer and put them on for 25  minutes, please check with your air fryers cooking instructions.

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!
