Pesach oven cooking suggestions for lamb ribs?

I bought a chunk of fresh lamb ribs to cook for this Shabbat. Any cooking suggestions? Needs to be done in my Pesach oven.
PS I don't use kitniyot or matzo meal on Pesach. Thanks.

  1. Place them on a rack in a roasting pan and brush well with Gold's Garlic duck sauce. Bake at 350 F until dark golden brown (basting every 30 minutes.

    You can cut the ribs apart before cooking for basting on all sides and easier to serve.

      Sounds good but don't know whether I can find the sauce here in Jerusalem by tomorrow.
      Can you give me an idea of its flavor so maybe I can put together something similar from what I have on hand?

      1. re: almond tree

        Just mix apricot preserves, vinegar, salt, pepper, and sugar.

      2. When I cook lamb ribs, I use this recipe from the New York Times:

        Salt and pepper, 3-4 hours in a 110 degrees C oven, couldn't be easier, couldn't be better.

        1. Just have to say that living in yehupezville the idea of "a chunk of fresh lamb ribs" makes me sick with envy. :-)

              Next time I struggle up the hill and get out of the galut I'll be sure to stop by.

          1. So I ended up roasting the ribs plain for a while, then poured off the fat and froze it to use in cholent eventually. After that I topped them with a modest amount of glaze (didn't want to overwhelm the lamb flavor) made of all fruit sugar-free apricot preserves, wine vinegar, salt and pepper. Threw in a few cloves of sliced "shum chai" (fresh garlic) as well. Then roasted a while longer till they were nice and brown.
            Truly finger lickin' good.
            Thanks for the help.

              Definitely want to try this. Was it a rack of lamb that you used?

                No, just the ribs. Much more bone and fat than actual meat, but what meat there was tasted great.
                I'm sure the glaze would be good with a rack of lamb as well.

                1. re: almond tree

                  I'm sure anything on a rack of lamb would be great!
                  Will try to get the ribs

                  1. re: cheesecake17

                    Here's a recipe I'd like to try now that Pesach's over -- if I can find lamb ribs in the supermarket again.
                    It adds chick peas to absorb some of the juices & stretch the lamb flavor.

                      I wonder where I would find lamb breast. Already cooked for this Shabbat, will look for it next week.
