  • To cut ribs, lay your ribs flat with the back side of the ribs facing up in order to cut from the back. Using a sharp knife, cut right next to the rib between each rib so each cut has plenty of meat on the bone.
  • Use your favorite barbecue sauce! You can use any kind you like, from sweet BBQ sauce to spicy and everything in-between. Whatever your favorite is, it will pair perfectly with these air fryer pork ribs.
  • Serve air fried pork ribs with extra BBQ sauce for dipping.
  • Make sure to preheat your air fryer before cooking the ribs. It's important the air fryer is already hot when the ribs begin cooking, so don't skip this step.
  • Flip at the 15 minute mark for best results.
