We are in the middle of building work and having a new kitchen put in. sil and hubby have just let us know they're arriving tomorrow. We don't want to eat out so I've got a lamb shoulder out of the freezer. Slow cooker would be the best option for me but all my recipe books are packed away.
Inspiration please. (Not too many ingredients either if possible!)
I do a recipe with a leg, but I'm sure it would be just as nice with shoulder.
Stud the lamb with garlic and rosemary and add some whole small red onion to the pan to caramlise in the juices - roast for however long is needed and then about 15 mins before cooked add a couple of tins of butter beans or similar to soak up the juices - tis delish! Serve with green beans and new pots the teh roasted onions or similar.
My dad makes a paste with ground spices (turmeric, cinnamon, tiny bit of cloves etc) and oil; he studs the lamb (spiked with a knife) with pine kernels and raisins and rosemary; then completely covers the joint with the paste.
He then bakes it on a very low heat for as long as possible but at least 6-8 hours.
