Reheating Ribs Ingredients
Ribs – You will need some leftover ribs. I recommend that you place them in the fridge after eating and then reheat your leftover ribs within 3 days. You can do as little as 3 ribs or as many as 12 ribs at once in the air fryer.
Sauce – I also love to have some extra barbecue sauce. You can toss the ribs (once reheated) in the barbecue sauce and they will be even better than when they were first cooked.
Then for the kitchen gadgets that we have used in these reheated air fryer ribs recipe it has just been our Cosori air fryer. We have this one and its wonderful for many types of air fryer recipes.
Plus, we recommend you head over to our air fryer recipes category as we have more than 500 tried and tested air fryer recipes and have been air frying for 10 years.
