About this recipe: Everyone loves meat, especially ribs, we have done an alternate way of making ribs instead of barbecuing – why not cook them on top of the stove and then grill them. Serve with potato wedges and a side salad.

Serves: 6 

  • 2kg short lamb ribs
  • 6 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 (3cm) piece root ginger
  • 160ml honey
  • 4 tablespoons soft brown sugar
  • 125ml soy sauce
  • 4 red chillis, chopped, seeds removed
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 190ml water
  • juice of 4 lemons, zest of 2

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:45min 

  1. Place the ribs in a saucepan and cover with cold water and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Drain the water and clean the saucepan.
  2. Place ribs in the cleaned pot, mix the remaining ingredients together for marinade, and pour onto the ribs. Cover and simmer for about 10 minutes until the sauce thickens a bit and is sticky.
  3. Preheat the grill on 230 C / Gas 8 or highest temperature. Transfer the ribs on a baking tray and brush with thickened sticky marinade.
  4. Place on top rack of the oven and grill for 5-10 minutes – watching it very carefully to prevent them for burning. You can slightly open the oven door to keep an eye on the ribs as it can burn very quickly.
