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
