So, I’ve got a boneless lamb shoulder (1.1k) - can anyone advise what the best cooking time and temperature would be? All the recipes I can find are for bone-in and I’ve only ever cooked bone-in before.

Thanks, I’d seen the Waitrose timings but I’ve found in the past that supermarkets seem to err on the side of caution when it comes to cooking times.

I would put it in at 190-200 degrees for 20 or so mins, then reduce temp to 160, for 3 hrs or so. Its a fatty cut so needs long slow cooking, I would wrap it in tin foil or use a lidded dish.

Thanks user, that’s pretty much what my husband suggested. I’d been hoping it wouldn’t take so long, but better to have a tasty roast. I’ll have to do my gravy veg separately, I guess. Thanks!

Just popping back to say your timings were perfect. The lamb was delicious (I chucked some wine in when I transferred it to a casserole dish) - it was melt-in-the-mouth perfect. Thanks.

Ah so glad, low and slow for fatty joints. Happy to help.

I do this in the slow cooker. The left overs make an amazing curry, preferably with spinach!
