Is it raining outside, making it hard to light the braai and cook your beautifully marinated ribs? Well, cooking your ribs in the oven can be just as tasty and if you’re not too confident about cooking on an open fire, the oven provides you with peace of mind. The marinade makes up most of the effort anyway and will flavour your oven-baked lamb ribs to perfection as well as tenderizing them to that they pretty much fall off the bone.
This recipe is for about a kilo of ribs but you can adjust the amounts as you see fit depending on how many people you’re about to feed. You can either bake them on a tray or just double-wrap them with foil. To crisp-up the outside, make sure to have some extra marinade and baste them before turning the oven to grill for a few minutes. You can also use beef or pork ribs with the same recipe. Serve with salad and crispy potatoes with a mint dipping sauce.
