Not only that but who wants to turn the oven on in that heat? Not me!
Enter my favorite household appliance, the Air Fryer! It makes this ribs recipe perfect every single time we make it.

Country Style Ribs in the Air Fryer
- Preheat the Air Fryer to 380 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare the air fryer basket with nonstick cooking spray such as olive oil or avocado oil.
- Rinse and pat the ribs until dry. Add all of the seasonings to small bowl and mix well. Rub the seasonings onto the ribs.
- Place the country pork ribs into a single layer in the air fryer basket. Cook at 380 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes.
- Open the basket and brush the sides and tops of the ribs with your favorite barbecue sauce. Cook for an additional 2 minutes.
- Remove the ribs from the air fryer and serve with your favorite side dishes.
TIP: All air fryers can cook differently. It's always best to test a small batch before cooking the entire meal to decide if our air fryer requires more or less time.
What temperature should the country style ribs be at to be fully cooked?
According to the FDA, pork is cooked thoroughly when the internal temperature has reached 145 degrees Fahrenheit. Use a meat thermometer to check the thickest part of the meat to ensure doneness.
How do I store leftover country style ribs?
If you have leftover country-style ribs, place them into an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. To reheat, allow the ribs to sit at room temperature for 15 minutes before reheating them in the air fryer at 380 degrees Fahrenheit for 2-3 minutes, or until heated through.
