  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1/4 cup oyster sauce
  • 2 tablespoons soft brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated 
  • fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon crushed garlic

Asian Slaw

  • 1/4  green or red cabbage, finely sliced
  • 2 carrots, grated 
  • 4 spring onions, trimmed and very finely sliced
  • 3 handfuls mung bean sprouts
  • 1 handful picked coriander leaves

Preheat the oven to 200°C.

  • Leave a little of the lamb fat on the ribs to give you flavour and keep the meat moist during cooking.
  • The Asian slaw adds a great crunch to this dish.
  • Serve with plenty of napkins for sticky fingers.
  • Ribs are sold two ways, as separate ribs or joined together. If joined together cut them into two, three or four rib pieces. The bigger the pieces the longer they will take to cook.
  • As a guide, serve 3 - 4 ribs per person for a main meal.

Hi Mary,

Yes you can use beef ribs, you will just need to cook them a little bit longer :)

Happy cooking

I cooked this recipe last week and it was so easy and delicious. Ribs are notorious for being moreish so the slaw is a healthy addition!
