Salt-and-Pepper Baby Back Ribs
1 – Heat air fryer to 375°F on the air fryer setting.
2 – Use a paring knife to pick at and loosen the silky membrane that covers the rack’s underside. Grab the nicked up bit with a paper towel and peel off the membrane.
3 – Use a chef’s knife to slice the rack into three even sections.
4 – Mix salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder in a small bowl. Sprinkle evenly over both sides of the rib sections.
5 – Arrange the three sections in the heated machine so that air can circulate around them. They can overlap but should be set higgledy-piggledy, not evenly stacked. Work in batches as necessary.
6 – Air-fry for 15 minutes. Use clean nonstick-safe tongs to rearrange the pieces to expose more sections as the ribs continue to cook.
7 – Continue air-frying for about 15 more minutes, until well browned and sizzling. Use clean tongs to transfer the rib sections to a clean cutting board. Cool for a few minutes before slicing between the bones into individual ribs. Serve warm.
