This roast lamb shoulder can also be done with leg of lamb.
This recipe brought back memories of growing up for me. Ten hour slow roasted lamb was a family favourite though my parents cooked it with Italian spices. The meat is so tender.
The version in our family cookbook calls for leg of lamb but I decided to use the shoulder. Shoulder is cheaper and personally I think it tastes equally as good cooked in this way.
Whether you use leg or shoulder, I hope you try this one. It’s more the long cooking time that I want to promote here than anything else. If you like Italian food, try the technique with oregano, rosemary, garlic and thyme with a splash of wine.
If you’d like to do your own French interpretation, use lots of onions, whole shallots, garlic and again wine.
In this rather Indian style dish, I used many of the spices I use in my traditional lamb rogan josh recipe though I did decide to add a nice dry white wine which doesn’t feature in most Indian dishes.
You could of course just use a nice lamb, vegetable or chicken stock instead.
