Lamb Riblets


600g lamb riblets
1 tbsp chipotle seasoning

Basting Sauce:

200 ml tomato sauce
60 ml apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp brown sugar
½ tsp chilli flakes
½ tsp Dijon mustard
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp crushed garlic and ginger
1 tbsp white vinegar
Ground black pepper


1. Preheat oven to 180°C (356°F).

2. Put all the marinade ingredients in a pot except the vinegar. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat and let it simmer for 12 minutes, or until slightly thick in consistency. Add the vinegar and boil for another 1 minute. Remove from heat.

3. Season the riblets with chipotle seasoning. Place over medium heat on a braai stand and grill for 10 minutes, turning them over halfway through.
