  1. I’m so torn here.

    On the 1 hand, *how dare you?*.

    On the other, 30 minute ribs.

  2. **Air Fryer Ribs**

    Who says you can’t have great ribs when the rain won’t stop.

    I’m power cooking sugar free pork ribs at a higher than normal temperature in my air fryer to create juicy tender ribs.

    Saint Louis style ribs are my pork ribs of choice. They are well marbled and packed with flavor. You can use back ribs if you like. Air fryer ribs are so easy to prepare. You can’t add smoke to the air fryer but we can add a little liquid smoke to my tangy sugar free BBQ sauce. I’m putting this keeper recipe on the must try list. 30-40 minutes and you have a great low carb dinner.

    Here is a video version if you are interested: [](


    Make the sugar free rib rub and sugar free BBQ sauce ahead of time.

    Pull the rubbery membrane off the bone side of the ribs with a piece of paper towel and discard.

    Cut the ribs in half so they fit into the air fryer basket.

    Apply rib rub liberally on both sides.

    Optional: Wrap with plastic wrap and rest in the fridge for up to 6 hours, to add deep flavor into the ribs.

    Place the ribs in the air fryer basket, Teepee style (leaning against each other).

    Set your air fryer to 360-370 degrees and cook for 25-40 minutes.

    After 25 minutes, check to see if they are pliable, add a little more time until the bones become loose when twisted.

    Brush sugar free BBQ sauce on both sides if desired and lean against each other in the basket.

    Cook for another 5-10 minutes until the sauce has set/caramelized.

    Serve extra sauce on the side for dipping.

    Serve with my cauli Mac and cheese and baked beans.

    Notes: Air fryers are different, some have more airflow which can effect the cooking time. Make sure to check the ribs often as you don’t want them to dry out too much.

    **Sugar Free Rib Rub**


    ¼ cup paprika

    1 Tbsp celery salt

    1 Tbsp garlic powder

    1 Tbsp onion powder

    1 TBSP dried/dehydrated minced garlic

    1 TBSP dried/dehydrated minced onion

    2 Tbsp seasoning salt

    2 Tbsp. chili powder

    3 Tbsp. fresh ground pepper

    ½ tsp. chili pepper seeds to taste

    2 Tbsp sugar free sweetener of your choice (erythritol)

    Mix rub ingredients well in a mixing bowl (makes enough sugar free rub for two 10 pound pork butts or 4 racks of ribs and any chicken parts that needs some great flavour).

    Makes a little over a cup of rub.

    Store in an airtight container.

    **Sweet Sugar Free BBQ Sauce**

    Makes about a cup.

    ¼ cup water or Jack Daniels Whiskey

    ½ cup sugar free ketchup

    2 TBSP Bragg’s Cider Vinegar

    1 TBSP Worcestershire sauce

    3 TBSP Swerve Brown Sugar

    Dash of your favorite hot sauce to taste

    ½ tsp. chili powder

    ¼ tsp. garlic powder

    ¼ tsp. onion powder

    ¼ tsp. chili seeds

    ¼ tsp. Fresh cracked pepper

    ¼ tsp celery salt


    Dash of liquid smoke

    In a saucepan; add all ingredients, bring to a boil, simmer stirring constantly for 10 minutes to thicken.

    Store excess sauce in the fridge.

    This BBQ sauce is perfect with my Picnic Chicken recipe.

  3. How tough are they? There’s a reason why you cook ribs “low and slow”. I would be afraid that they don’t come out tender enough.

  4. How would they get tender in the air fryer? I think I’d cook in the oven first and finish off in the air fryer so they’d be crispy on the outside.

  5. Didn’t see the subreddit and legit thought it was from [r/DiWHY]( and someone mounted a rack of ribs.

    Time for bed.

  6. I do mine in oven at 450 for 2 hours in foil w a cup of water. then glaze w sauce and broil 10 minutes . Fall off the bone delicious.

  7. How do these compare to ribs cooked low and slow? You mention the lack of smoke, but what about texture?

  8. Nice looking recipe. I have a hard time getting the bbq sauce to caramelize without the sugar. Any tips?

  9. Based on my limited experience it DEFINITELY works best in a Ninja Foodi where you pressure cook first then air fry to finish- skipping this step once left us with chewy disappointment.

  10. Thanks for this, been doing split chicken breast in my air fryer, wanted to try ribs for a while now!

  11. This sounds delicious. Is there a minimum size air fryer capacity you’d recommend for cooking ribs?

  12. The air fryer feels unnecessary. You can low and slow ribs in the oven, or pressure cook them, and then apply whatever seasoning/sauce you want and finish off under the broiler.
