Pistachio-Mint Pesto Lamb Riblets

Lamb riblets?! Of course there is such a thing…I’ve just never seen them ~ until a few days ago. They had to go immediately into my shopping cart! Just as with any ribs, low-and-slow cooking is the way to go; however, it just doesn’t take as long because they are so small.
