Though lamb ribs can be cooked in a variety of different ways, experimentation is key in order to find out which method you prefer. Baking lamb ribs allows their natural flavor to be more prevalent in the final product, while broiling and grilling bring out more intense, smoky flavors because of the high heat. Pair cooked lamb ribs with a rich red wine with a hint of fruit flavor like pinot noir, Beaujolais or Shiraz.
