Looking for an easy peasy dinner that takes less than half an hour? Look no further because I have the EASIEST keto short ribs that takes only 12 minutes to cook in an air fryer!
The rub for these ribs is a new favourite. It’s a mix of garlic & onion with a hint of paprika and sweetness from brown sugar substitute. I honestly LOVE this rub. Ive also tried it on pork chops (which is equally delicious).
For the brown sugar substitute – I used Splenda – HOWEVER – sadly it is half erythritol/half actual brown sugar. SO its NOT recommended to use it if you are keto or diabetic. I have tried Sukrin Gold and it will work just as well. I believe Swerve also has a brown sugar substitute as well as Lakanto!
Now the recipe itself is super simple – all you need to do is mix together the spices, pat down the ribs with a paper towel – brush with some olive oil and then rub in the spice mixture. So easy! Then place in the air fryer for 12 minutes!
