It has been for many years now that I have been sharing my recipes, and this particular one I shared ages ago on a Muslim Online Recipe Manager. I’m amazed that I hadn’t even posted it here for the benefit of YOU, my dear readers and followers. So here is my delayed post on my personal blog here.
I am not very impressed with the original Pic I had posted way back when…. but you can find that pic somewhere in this post.
What I love about this recipe, is that it is so adaptable, you could easily put this dish out onto your dinner table as two seperate dishes altogether.
The more saucier version for the chops would be to make it in a pan on stove top, while for a crisper end result grilling in the oven is best. The grilling works best for Lamb Ribs, as I wouldn’t advice those being made in a pan, However I have successfully made other lamb cuts as well by grilling in the oven.
I do hope you give this recipe a try, and as always I look forward to your feedback.
