Quick cooking, yet ultra tender and juicy Air Fryer Ribs covered in the best rub you’ve ever tasted!
2 lb baby back ribs
¼ cup brown sugar
2 tbsp chili powder
2 tsp dried parsley
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
¼ tsp cayenne pepper
Preheat air fryer to 300 degrees F. Remove silverskin membrane from the underside of ribs by using a butter knife to get under it, then grab ahold with a paper towel and remove. Cut between each rib bone to create individual rib sections.
Combine the spices in a bowl and add each rib section and coat evenly. Place ribs in the basket of the air fryer, making sure there is room between for air circulation.
Cook at 300 degrees F for 10 minutes, carefully open air fryer and flip each rib over. Cook an additional 10 minutes.
Finally, flip the ribs one more time, then increase the temperature to 375 degrees F. Cook an additional 8 to 10 minutes, until the ribs reach between 190-200 degrees F. Remove from air fryer and cover loosely with foil, let rest for 5 minutes. Enjoy!
You can use larger racks of ribs, but you may have to cook in batches. Use an instant read thermometer to check internal temperature of the ribs to make sure they’re cooked appropriately.
