Lamb ribs are always been a favorite for the Slankers, but with BBQ sauce from a new Slanker recipe (below and on the web), these ribs are truly special!
2 packages of lamb ribs
The mint marinade makes these rib chops "superlicious"!
5-7 lamb rib chops
Delicious but they come with a bit of a bite on the back end!
This recipe is from Melissa Joulwan's refreshing new cookbook, Well Fed 2: More Paleo Recipes for People Who Love to Eat. She has some excellent recipes in both the first and second books with ethnic spices and all kinds of innovative ideas for re-creating these masterpieces to suit personal tastes. We loved the chicken meatballs and plan to make them again using lamb instead of chicken, which she recommends as a substitute for chicken. We highly recommend these cookbooks!
Ingredients:2 Tbs. warm water 1/2 tsp. cream of tartar 1/4 tsp. baking soda 1 pound ground chicken (Slanker Select Omega-3 Chicken is recommended) 2 cloves garlic, minced (about 2 tsp.) 4 dried apricots, minced (about 2 Tbs.) 2 Tbs. almonds, chopped (we omitted these because we limit our nut consumption) 1/4 c. fresh cilantro leaves, minced (about 1 Tbs.) 1/4 c. fresh parsley leaves, minced (about 1 Tbs.) 1 tsp. salt 1/8 tsp. ground turmeric 1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon 1/8 tsp. powdered ginger 1/8 tsp. ground black pepper
"This is a delicious variation of stuffed peppers without using any bread or grain products. You may also substitute cabbage leaves instead of peppers--just watch closely so you don't burn the cabbage."
2 lbs. Slanker's grass-fed ground beef, ground buffalo or ground lamb (or a combination of any two or three ground meat products)
"Mint is high in Omega-3, so enjoy as often as possible."
1 package Slanker's grass-fed lamb chops (choose from loin, sirloin, shoulder or arm chops)
"Choose from a variety of ground meats and enjoy these delicious meatballs as a main dish or an appetizer."
