In this guide, we’ll show you the best method to reheat ribs in your trusty Ninja Foodi.

Gather Your Ingredients and Tools
Before we get started, make sure you have everything you need within reach for a seamless rib reheating experience:
– Leftover ribs (preferably refrigerated)
– Aluminum foil
– Oven-safe baking sheet
– Meat thermometer
– Ninja Foodi
Follow these simple preparation steps to ensure perfectly reheated and deliciously tender ribs:
1. Remove ribs from the refrigerator: Take out your leftover rib rack from the fridge and let it sit at room temperature for about 20 minutes. This allows the meat to warm up slightly before reheating.
2. Preheat your Ninja Foodi: Set your Ninja Foodi on “Bake” mode at 325°F (163°C). While it preheats, proceed with the next step.
Wrapping the Ribs in Foil
Properly wrapping your ribs ensures that they retain moisture during reheating:
1. Tear off a large piece of aluminum foil: Make sure it’s big enough to fully wrap around the entire rack of ribs.
2. Place the rib rack on top of the aluminum foil: Ensure that any bones or exposed meat are facing upward.
3. Create a sealed package: Wrap the foil tightly around each individual slab of ribs so that no steam escapes during cooking.
The key to reheating ribs perfectly lies in achieving the ideal internal temperature:
1. Place the wrapped ribs on an oven-safe baking sheet: This prevents any potential drippings from making a mess in your Ninja Foodi.
2. Insert a meat thermometer into the thickest part of one rib slab: Ensure that you avoid touching any bones, as this can result in inaccurate readings.
3. Carefully place the baking sheet with wrapped ribs inside your preheated Ninja Foodi: Close the lid and set a timer for 20 minutes.
4. Monitor the internal temperature: Once 165°F (74°C) is reached, remove the ribs from your Ninja Foodi using heat-resistant gloves or tongs. If they haven’t reached this temperature yet, continue cooking for another few minutes until they do.
Finishing Touches and Serving
Now that you have perfectly reheated ribs, it’s time to add some finishing touches before serving:
1. Open up the foil package carefully: Be cautious of escaping steam as you unwrap each succulent piece of meat.
2. Optional sauce application: Brush your favorite barbecue sauce onto both sides of each rib slab if desired.
3. Achieving caramelization (optional): For those who prefer a slightly crispy exterior, place unwrapped ribs under a broiler on high for 2-5 minutes per side until desired level of charred edges is achieved.
4. Serve and enjoy! Plate your deliciously reheated ribs alongside coleslaw, cornbread, or any other preferred barbecue accompaniments.
