Ingredients

  • 1 Pound lamb ribs, preferably Australian
  • 1 -2 quarts chicken, beef, veal, or lamb stock
  • 1/2 Pound onion, chopped
  • 1/4 Pound carrots, chopped
  • 1/4 Pound celery, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons minced garlic
  • 6 Tablespoons dried sumac
  • 1/4 Cup honey
  • 1/4 Cup tamarind paste
  • 1/4 Cup molasses
  • 1/4 Cup tomato paste
  • 1/2 Cup water
  • 1 Tablespoon salt

Directions

Place the ribs in a stockpot and add the stock until just covered. Add the onion, carrots, and celery and place over high heat. Once it reaches a gentle simmer, reduce the heat to maintain the simmer and cook for 45 minutes.

Meanwhile, purée the remaining ingredients in a food processor until smooth to make the lacquer. When the ribs are done, remove them from the cooking liquid and let cool to room temperature.

Then, preheat a gas grill or grill pan on medium heat. Lightly coat the ribs with the lacquer and place on the grill for about 4-5 minutes on each side, basting frequently. When ribs are heated through and nicely lacquered on both sides, remove from the heat. Bring any remaining lacquer to a boil in a pot and drizzle over the ribs.

Tamarind Cooking Tip

Southeast Asian Cuisine is about the balance of flavors between sweet and sour; hot and mild. When working with Asian chilis, the smaller ones are usually spicier. Handle with caution and care.
