Peppered Lamb Ribs

Peppered Lamb Ribs

If anyone in the Berkshire area is wondering why they can’t source lamb ribs at The Trose, its because Funnyman and I empty the shelves on every visit and stock up our chest freezer. (And when they have no stock, we get it from our butcher: while his pieces may not be uniform in size,  they actually deliver MORE on flavour to be honest!) It is our favourite item on the braai and we enjoy it many nights – even in winter! We simply bring our festivities inside and cook them on our electric grill. Funnyman is the one who cooks them while I put my feet up (for a change). He likes them with a mustard-mayo dip (included in macros), but I love them just as they are…

Fats of Life® is a blog that I run as a hobby, but did you know that I am also the author of two cookbooks? My first book Keto Kitchen (published by Kyle Books in 2020) is available worldwide (and has remained one of the best-selling low carb cookbooks in the UK). My second book Lazy Keto Kitchen (coming mid-year, 2021) is currently available to pre-order.

Calories: 984kcal | Protein: 57g | Fat: 84g


  • 500 g (17.6 oz) lamb ribs
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 20 g (0.7 oz) mayonnaise, (optional)
  • 20 g (0.7 oz) Dijon mustard, (optional)
  • pink Himalayan salt
  • chives, snipped to garnish


  • Generously grind black pepper on all sides of each rib.
  • Once your grill or braai (BBQ) is ready, grill the lamb ribs, turning regularly until the fat has crisped and the ribs have cooked, approximately 25-30 minutes. Alternatively, you can grill them using an indoor BBQ grill (like we often do in the chilly months).
  • In the meantime, combine the mayonnaise and mustard in a small bowl.
  • Season the cooked ribs with pink Himalayan salt and serve with the mustard mayo..

On the exceptionally chilly nights here in the UK, we use our indoor electric BBQ. It doesn't impart the same flavour you would get from cooking outdoors over wood, but it does the job and ours gets used plenty over winter!
