This lamb marinade is a favourite of the head chefs at Porteño

Preparation: 30 minutes

Cooking time: 2 hours 15 minutes

Serves: 8


4 racks of lamb ribs (400 g)

1 cold radish, quartered

1 cold cucumber, quartered and cut into pieces

1 knob ginger, peeled

1 clove garlic, peeled Miso Marinade

2 x 350 ml bottles of draught beer

150 g yellow miso paste

100 g caster (superfine) sugar


1. Preheat a combination oven with a steam function to 100°C and 100 per cent steam. Place the ribs on steamer trays and cook for two hours. Remove from the oven and leave to cool. You can also use a large stovetop steamer, for the same amount of time, to steam the lamb ribs if preferred.

2. With a sharp, heavy knife or cleaver, slice alongside each rib so you get a single finger-friendly portion. Place these in a non-reactive dish.

3. Whisk the beer, miso paste and sugar in a large mixing bowl until combined then pour over the lamb ribs and toss evenly to coat. Cover, refrigerate and leave to marinate for up to 24 hours.

4. Preheat the oven to 200°C and place the marinated lamb ribs on lined baking trays. Bake for 10–15 minutes or until a golden brown crust forms over the ribs.

5. Serve immediately with the radish and cucumber. Garnish with ginger and garlic.


Use any leftover marinade as a dipping sauce for the cooked ribs. Just be sure to bring to the boil on the stove before serving. For tender, fall-off-the-bone ribs, always look for a rack of ribs with marbled fat throughout. This will help add extra flavour.
