Serving Suggestion
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 300°F, gas mark 2, 150°C (130°C fan-assisted).
  2. In a large non-stick frying pan seal the lamb on all sides until browned and crispy, this process can take about 10 minutes, keep moving the lamb over after every 2 minutes.
  3. When the lamb is sealed, leave to cool then season on all sides with white pepper, garlic granules, sea salt, ground cumin and paprika. Then place the lamb into a roasting tray or casserole dish, pour the water around the dish. The cover and place in the pre-heated oven for 5 hours, basting with the lamb juice every hour. After 4 ¼ hours, remove the lid, baste again with the juice and leave to cook for 45 minutes uncovered.

Recipe Notes

LISA’S TIP – I am a massive fan of leftovers for some reason I think that all recipes which are slow cooked taste even better the next day when re-heated. Therefore, if you’re lucky enough to have leftovers, add a touch of non-stick oil to a frying pan and re-heat! The shoulder of lamb is an often overlooked cut of meat it tends to be tough, but when you slow cook it, it’s nice and tender.
