The perfect fall-inspired Ninja Foodi Ribs can be made with these Ninja Foodi Maple Glazed Ribs!
We’ve fallen in love with Ninja Foodi Ribs, making them in the Ninja Foodi may just be the EASIEST way to make them. They can be made in the Ninja Foodi Grill or Ninja Foodi Multi-Cooker, but for this recipe, we use the Ninja Foodi Multi-Cooker.
The reason I use the multi-cooker is that we will be using both the pressure cooker function and the air crisp function to make these ribs.

Ribs will be cooked in the Ninja Foodi in two parts, using both the Pressure Cooker and Air Crisper functions. That means you will need both lids to make these ribs. It will take about one hour to make the ribs.
The first part of this method is going to be using the pressure cooker along with the pressure cooker lid that comes with the Ninja Foodi.

Tips for preparing ribs:
Remember to trim off the membrane on the back of the ribs. Ours came already trimmed, but if there is excess fat on the back of the ribs, trim them off first.
It also may be necessary to cut the ribs apart to fit in the basket of the Ninja Foodi. I sit them upright in the Ninja Foodi to fit.
