Barely seasoned with nothing more that salt and pepper, the lamb ribs are cooked in the oven where its own juices and rendered fat will eventually serve as the sauce.
I made some barberry rice alongside, which has the zing that compliments the fattiness of the dish, but a plain rice cooked in ghee is more usual in keeping up with the theme of bare, simple, clean food. The rendered fat is used unadulterated while still hot and liquid as an unapologetic sauce. People with cholesterol step away from this dish (you have been warned).
iraqi lamb ribs ingredients :
1 (1.5kg) side of lamb ribs
1 1/2 tsp salt
3/4-1 tsp finely ground pepper
How cook iraqi lamb ribs :
Preheat oven to 350F.
If you can, try to remove that thin tough silverskin on the bone side of the ribs; it makes for easier cutting and eating later on.
Bake for 2 and a half to 3 hours.
Broil the meat side of the ribs until golden. Remove from the oven, set rest covered in the same foil for 10 minutes
