How to grill lamb ribs

  1. When you’re cooking lamb ribs, the first thing you need to do is make sure to remove them from the fridge/freezer and bring them to room temperature. This should only take half an hour or so, depending on size of your ribs.
  2. Prepare a large roasting tray, with a metal rack in the middle, large enough to hold your lamb ribs. Turn the grill to medium-low.
  3. Season your lamb ribs with your chosen seasoning or marinade. Salt and pepper is a great start, but you might want to consider a dry spice rub, or a wet marinade. Whatever you choose, these ribs are going to taste great.
  4. Transfer your seasoned ribs to the metal rack in your roasting tray, and place the roasting tray under the grill. Brown on each side for 5 minutes, then turn the grill to low and cook for a further hour, turning every 10-15 minutes. If you’re using a wet marinade, try reserving some for basting the ribs during the grilling process.
  5. When cooked, remove the ribs to a warm bowl, and let them rest for 10 minutes before serving.
