Lamb ribs with chermoula

‘Shut the gate’ is one of the funniest ways to express when something is so fantastic

that there is nothing left to say on the matter. Well, I reckon this lamb rib dish is one of

the best I have ever had the pleasure of cooking and eating; so, yeah . . . shut the damn

gate! In all seriousness, though, ribs are the tastiest cut of lamb as they have an amazing

layer of fat on top of the meat. When cooked slowly in spices until the meat is falling off

the bone, and finished with a zingy chermoula, not much can top them.

LAMB RIBS WITH CHERMOULA

1.5 kg lamb ribs

3 tablespoons lard or other

good-quality animal fat

sea salt and freshly ground

black pepper

Chermoula

1 large handful of coriander leaves, chopped

1 large handful of flat-leaf parsley leaves, chopped

1 large handful of mint leaves, chopped

2 garlic cloves, chopped

1 ½ teaspoons ground cumin

1 ½ teaspoons ground coriander

1 teaspoon smoked paprika

½ long red chilli, deseeded and chopped

3 tablespoons lemon juice

125 ml (1/2 cup) olive oil

sea salt and freshly ground

black pepper

To make the chermoula, combine the herbs, garlic, spices, chilli and lemon juice in a food processor and process to a paste.

With the motor running, drizzle in the olive oil and process until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Preheat the oven to 150°C (130°C fan-forced).

Rub the ribs with the fat and sprinkle with a generous amount of salt and pepper.

Heat a large flameproof casserole dish over medium–high heat.

Add the ribs in batches and seal on all sides for 4–5 minutes until browned.

Return all the ribs to the dish, cover with the lid and roast in the oven for 3 hours, or until the meat is tender and falling off the bone.

Cut the ribs into pieces, drizzle over the chermoula and serve.
