What You’ll Need

  • 1 slab Prairie Fresh USA Prime® pork loin backribs
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups plain breadcrumbs or panko crumbs
  • ¼ cup, plus 1 tablespoon favorite all-purpose seasoning or barbecue rub


Hot Honey Glaze:

  • 1 tablespoon favorite all-purpose seasoning or barbecue rub
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon chili flakes
  • ½ cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar


  1. Remove the thin membrane on the back of the rack of ribs.
  2. On a baking sheet, season your ribs with ¼ cup all-purpose seasoning or barbecue rub. Place in the refrigerator, uncovered, for 2 hours to air dry and marinate.
  3. Next, bake ribs following your choice of the oven-baked or sous vide directions below.

Oven-Baked Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 300 F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with a couple sheets of foil. Place the rack of ribs on the foil sheets. Fold the foil over ribs, making sure to seal it tightly at the top.
  3. Place the baking sheet in the middle rack of the oven. Bake for 3 hours.
  4. Chill ribs, then continue to air frying directions. 

Sous Vide Directions

  1. Preheat water bath using your sous vide circulator to 165 F.
  2. Fold the top of a vacuum-sealed bag over itself to prevent any juices or seasonings from getting on the bag edges, which can prevent a good seal. Slide ribs in bag. Unfold top of bag. Seal the bag with a vacuum sealer.
  3. Place sealed bag in the 165 F water bath and cover with aluminum foil to prevent excessive evaporation.
  4. Cook ribs to 165 F for 12 hours for tender, fully cooked ribs.
  5. Immediately put sealed ribs into an ice bath for at least 30 minutes. Ribs can be stored in refrigerator for up to 5 days until ready for the next steps. When ready to complete recipe, continue to air frying directions.

Air Frying directions

  1. Preheat your air fryer to 400 F.
  2. In a mixing bowl, beat eggs.
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, season your breadcrumbs with 1 tablespoon seasonings or barbecue rub.
  4. Cut chilled ribs into individual bones.
  5. Dip ribs into the beaten eggs. Coat rib bones in seasoned breadcrumbs.
  6. Lay single rib bones in the air fryer basket. Do not stack ribs. Cook for approximately 15 minutes or until the breadcrumbs are golden brown. You may cook in batches depending on the air fryer basket size.
  7. While ribs are cooking, mix your honey, vinegar, cayenne pepper, black pepper, chili flakes, and seasoning or barbecue rub in a small sauce pot over medium heat. Stir until the honey begins to bubble. Remove from heat and set aside.
  8. When the ribs are done, immediately remove from the oven and drizzle with hot honey or serve hot honey on the side and enjoy!
