Lamb ribs are definitely not an everyday food, but their fattiness paired with the sweet vinegar of mint sauce is truly delicious.


1kg lamb ribs, separated into individual ribs

1 tbsp olive oil

Mint sauce

½ cup finely shredded mint leaves, plus extra for garnish

½ tsp caster sugar

¼ cup white wine vinegar


1. Heat your oven to 170C fan-forced (190C conventional). Toss the lamb ribs in the olive oil, season well with salt and place on a rack over a piece of baking paper on a baking tray. Roast the lamb ribs for about 1½ to 2 hours until they're browned and the fat is rendered.

2. For the mint sauce, combine mint leaves and sugar in a bowl and pour 1-2 tablespoons of boiling water on top. Stir to dissolve the sugar, then add the white wine vinegar to taste, plus a pinch of salt.

3. Serve the ribs with the mint sauce for dipping and garnish with a few extra mint leaves.
