Ingredients

  • 2kg (approx) Lamb Shoulder Bone In
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 cups water (or chicken stock)
  • 12 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 5 shallots, peeled and crushed
  • 2 tsps Peter Boucher Butcher's Salt
  • Cracked black pepper
  • Handful oregano leaves
  • Handful rosemary leaves

Method

1.

Preheat oven to 220 degrees.

2.

Lay the lamb shoulder in a roasting pan. Scatter the shallots and half the garlic in the pan. Add the water (or stock) to the pan. Drizzle half the olive oil over the lamb.

3.

In a small bowl, mix the remaining garlic, olive oil, salt, pepper and half the herbs. Mix well and drizzle over the meat of the lamb. Scatter the remaining herbs.

4.

Place the lamb shoulder in the hot oven and cook for 45 mins to caramelise and brown. Then turn the temperature down to 150 degrees and cook for 6-8 hours until lamb easily pulls away from the bone.

5.

Tip: Continue adding water or stock if the liquid is evaporating during the cooking time (every hour or so)

6.

Reserve this liquid to drizzle over the lamb or be the base of a gravy.

7.

Serve the slow roasted lamb shoulder with roasted vegetables, green beans, gravy or whatever you like!
