  • 3 1/2 pounds lamb ribs
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 3 teaspoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 3 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


To Marinate: Place lamb in a 9×13 inch baking dish or large sealable bag.

In a small bowl, combine the onions, garlic, honey, oil, soy sauce, wine, pepper, salt, lemon juice and cinnamon. Mix well and pour mixture all over the lamb.

Cover and refrigerate to marinate at least 1 hour. Several hours will only intensify the flavor.

Bake in the preheated oven for 70 minutes or until cooked through.

Check with a meat thermometer if necessary.
