Sticky Asian Lamb Ribs

I don’t know anyone who cannot resist a big bowl of lamb ribs which are slow cooked to perfection. There are so many ways you can make these delicious morsels but my favorite has to be sticky Asian style. The video above shows you how quick and simple they are to prepare and also I didn’t leave to marinate on this occasion,  but if you have the time it really adds to the flavour. Serve as a scrummy entree or as a snack to have with drinks!


1 Kilo Lamb ribs
1 tbsp grated ginger
2 tbsp Chinese rice wine
1 tsp sesame oil
3 tbsp hoisin sauce
1 tbsp honey
1 tsp soy sauce
1 the juice from lime
2 tsp toasted sesame seeds


1.Place the ribs into a large bowl with the ginger, Chinese rice wine, sesame oil and 3 tbsp of hoisin sauce. Stir well, cover and leave to marinate for 3 hours or up to overnight.

2.Preheat the oven to 175ºC. Place the ribs and marinade into a large baking dish, cover with a sheet of baking paper (this prevents burning)  cook for 2 ½ hours or until very tender. Set the ribs aside and allow to cool slightly.
 3.Sprinkle with the sesame seeds a squeeze of lime and serve.-
