For the rub:

  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp cumin, grounded
  • 1 tsp oregano, dried
  • 1 tsp paprika, smoked
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper (adjust to taste)
  • salt and black pepper to taste

For the ribs:

  • 1 rack lamb ribs, trimmed and membrane removed (450-500 g)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil for brushing
  • Low Carb BBQ Sauce to glaze (optional)


  • In a small bowl, mix together all the rub ingredients. Adjust quantities to suit your taste preferences.
  • Pat the lamb ribs dry with paper towels. Brush the ribs with olive oil to help the rub adhere.
  • Coat the ribs generously with the prepared rub, ensuring even coverage on both sides.
  • Cover the ribs and let them marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1-2 hours or overnight for more flavour.
  • Preheat your grill, oven or BBQ to a medium-high temperature (around 180-200°C or 375-400°F).
  • Cook the lamb ribs for 30-40 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches your desired level. Flip the ribs halfway through the cooking time. If using Defeat Diabetes BBQ Sauce to glaze, brush the ribs with the sauce in the last 15 minutes of cooking time, ensuring an even coating.
  • Once done, remove the lamb ribs and let them rest for a few minutes before slicing and serving.
