Marinated American lamb chops with rosemary & garlic on a plate


  • 6 rib racks American Lamb Denver ribs
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, as needed 

Sweet and Sour Glaze:

  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh gingerroot
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro leaves
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice


Peel thin membrane from the underside of the lamb ribs.  French the tip of the rib bones so they are easy to pick up without being messy.  Season the ribs with olive oil, salt and pepper.  Place ribs on a medium-high grill and cook until brown on both sides.  Let most of the fat render out of the ribs until they begin to crisp. 

For Sweet and Sour Glaze:  Reduce the pineapple juice, vinegar and soy sauce by 50 percent.  Add the ketchup, brown sugar and gingerroot; simmer for 5 minutes.  Stir in the cilantro and lime juice.  Chill the sauce until ready to use.  Store in airtight container for up to 2 weeks. 

Brush the ribs with some of the glaze and then place them under the salamander to reduce the glaze onto the ribs.  Slice between the rib bones and serve.
