4. Slow-Roasted Lamb Ribs

Switch up your rib game. Our lamb Denver ribs get the dry-rub treatment with a flavorful mixture of fennel, garlic, cumin, and brown sugar in this super easy recipe. The resulting ribs are tender, juicy, and delicious.


5. Braised Lamb Osso Buco

Osso buco is one of the best winter dishes. Veal may be more familiar, but we love lamb osso buco for something different. This easy braising recipe yields spoon-tender lamb in a luxurious sauce, and the gremolata cuts the richness with fresh flavor. Crusty bread makes a good accompaniment and acts as a vehicle for the soft bone marrow.
