  • Place in the Air Fryer: Put the seasoned prime rib in the air fryer basket or on the air fryer tray, ensuring good air circulation.

  • Air Fry: Cook the prime rib at 400°F for 20 minutes to sear the exterior. Then, reduce the temperature to 350°F (175°C) and continue cooking for about 10-15 minutes per pound for medium-rare, adjusting for desired doneness.
