1 pound of ribs

For the sauce

1 tbsp soy sauce

1 tbsp. tomato sauce

1 tbsp. honey

1 1/2 olive oil

1 tsp. smoked paprika

1 tsp. black pepper

1 tsp. nutmeg

2 garlic cloves

2 tbsp. lemon juice


1.Prepare the ribs: Start by removing the membrane from the back of the ribs. This will help the seasonings penetrate the meat better and make it more tender. To remove the membrane, pry it off with a butter knife at one end of the rib, then pick it up with a paper towel and remove. Make incisions in the back of the bone not all the way through.

2. Mix all the ingredients for the sauce in a bowl. Marinate the ribs in the flavorful mixture and leave for at least 40 minutes.

3. air fry the ribs: Place the seasoned ribs in the preheated air fryer basket with the meat side up. Cook the ribs at 375°F (190°C) for 30 minutes.

4. Flip and continue cooking: After 30 minutes, carefully flip the ribs over to the bone-in side and cook for another 25 minutes at the same temperature.

When the ribs are done, remove them from the air fryer and let them rest for a few minutes before slicing and serving. Serve the St. Louis ribs with your favorite side dish such as a vegetable salad, cornbread or baked beans for a complete and delicious meal. Remember, cooking St. Louis ribs can be a delightful culinary experience, and experimentation with seasonings, sauces, and cooking methods is encouraged to find the perfect combination that suits your taste buds. Enjoy!
