Greek Lamb Ribs (Master Chef Recipe)




It’s the middle of winter and I am craving for some really good ribs. Last year I’ve tried making Pork ribs and it was delicious, this time round, I wanted to try something different and Master Chef just on time taught me how to bake a nice lamb ribs in one of the master class so why not? I went to butcher and looked for Lamb ribs, the price of lamb is much cheaper than pork. This dish is so easy provided if you have a blender and an oven.


1.5kg lamb ribs, cut into single ribs


2cm ginger

5 eschalots

2 cloves garlic

1 tablespoon honey

1/4 cup orange juice

1/4 cup olive oil

1 tablespoon fish sauce

1 teaspoon coriander seed

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 star anise


1) To marinade, chopped ingredients and blend in a blender until combined.

2) Coat ribs in marinade, cover with cling wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour or overnight for better taste.

3) Preheat oven to 160°C. Place ribs on a rack over an oven tray on the bottom of oven and bake for 1.5 hour or until tender

4) Watch closely once the first hour is over as it can burnt easily, if the ribs is getting a bit burnt, lower the temperature a little bit or rotate the tray so the heat are evenly spread.

5) Drizzle with a little olive oil and serve hot!


Blending all marinade ingredient til a paste form


Coats the ribs all over and leave in the fridge for few hours


Watch those babies closely, as honey can caused ribs to burnt easily


placing a rack over a tray is a MUST! as Lamb is a fatty animal, the rack allows the oil to drip down and not “deep frying” the ribs

Earlier this year, I bought some vouchers to dine at Chimmichurri Bar & Grill for half price ($45 for 2 people all you can eat Brazilian BBQ Churrasco) , the idea of having hot BBQ food served on a skewer stick got me excited and it proves that I’ve made the best decision to come here with my girls. This is a fantastic place with nice fancy décor, there is also a bar area near the entrance for a few drinks before having your dinner. All the meat was flavoursome and juicy using BBQ style cooking with natural wood fire and charcoal, few of the times we saw some fire flame through the kitchen window. Extra points was given to the impeccable service! Like Like Like!

Chicken Heart

First time tasting chicken heart, it was a bit chewy and taste nothing like a chicken liver, in fact, it taste a bit like duck kidney. After some research, I realised it was Brazilian favourite.


Grill pineapple

This is totally new to me, I never eaten grill pineapple, it was full of chorcal flavour but however it was bit too sour for my liking.


Love you girls!


Pandan & Durian ice-cream with coconut jelly and red bean
