Air Fryer Recipes



  • 1 rack of baby back ribs
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional for heat)
  • Olive oil spray


  1. Prepare the Ribs:
    • Remove the membrane from the back of the ribs. This is an important step as it allows the rub to penetrate better and ensures more tender ribs.
  2. Make the Dry Rub:
    • In a small bowl, combine paprika, brown sugar, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, and cayenne pepper. Mix well.
  3. Season the Ribs:
    • Pat the ribs dry with paper towels. Rub the dry mix all over the ribs, ensuring an even coat. Let the ribs sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes to allow the rub to penetrate.
  4. Preheat the Air Fryer:
    • Preheat your air fryer to 350°F (175°C) for about 5 minutes.
  5. Cook the Ribs:
    • Spray the air fryer basket with olive oil spray to prevent sticking.
    • Place the ribs in the basket. You might need to cut the rack in half to fit them in the air fryer.
    • Cook the ribs at 350°F (175°C) for 25-30 minutes. Flip the ribs halfway through the cooking time to ensure even cooking. The ribs are done when they reach an internal temperature of 190-200°F (88-93°C) and are tender.
  6. Rest and Serve:
    • Remove the ribs from the air fryer and let them rest for about 5 minutes before cutting.
    • Serve with your favorite sides and enjoy!


  • For extra flavor: Marinate the ribs with the dry rub overnight in the refrigerator.
  • For a smoky flavor: Add a teaspoon of smoked paprika to the rub.
  • Check for doneness: Ensure the ribs are cooked through and tender by checking with a meat thermometer.
