A little spice jazzes up basic lamb spare ribs.

  • Prep: 10 mins
  • Cook: 1 hrs
  • Yields: 4 Servings


4 American Lamb spareribs, trimmed

1 tsp salt

½ tsp pepper

1 (10 ounce) jar jalapeño jelly (available in the international section of the market)

2 tbsp white wine vinegar with tarragon

2 tbsp Dijon-style mustard

1 garlic clove, finely chopped


1Preheat the oven to 375ºF.

2Place the ribs on a rack in a roasting pan. Cover the lamb with the salt and pepper and roast in the oven for 40 minutes.

3In a medium saucepan, combine the jelly, vinegar, mustard, and garlic on low heat.  Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring until smooth and the jelly is melted.

4Baste the ribs with the sauce and cook for an additional 20 minutes, basting every 10 minutes.

5Heat a grill over medium-high.

6Transfer the ribs to the grill. Cover and grill 4 inches for 30 to 45 minutes or until the desired degree of doneness. Brush on the glaze with a basting brush during the last 10 minutes of grilling.

7Remove the ribs from the grill and let it rest for 5 minutes before serving.
