Of course, the best way to cook lamb ribs is over an open fire to get a smoky flavor. But this method also works wonderfully. This is a recipe for well-cooked lamb without blood. Since our recipe is Greek, it is worth noting that in taverns, most often you are served well-done lamb.

If you are adding potatoes to the same pan as the lamb, be warned that they will not turn out as crispy as if you were baking them separately. But it’s really worth it, because they soak up all the juices and flavors of the lamb. So sacrifice the crust for extra flavor.

These Greek Lamb Ribs go great with this Cilantro Garlic Sauce.
