Slow Cooked Lamb Shoulder

Slow cooking makes this lamb dish meltingly tender. It will be incredibly tender and just break apart.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 2 lamb shoulders

  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves

  • 2 heads of garlic

  • 2 lemon cut in half

  • 200mls bottle sauvignon blanc white wine

  • 100mls water

  • Salt & Sugar to taste


  • 1.

    Preheat oven to 160°C.

  • 2.

    Heat oil in a large frying pan and brown the lamb.

  • 3.

    In a large baking dish place the onion halves cut side up. Halve and squeeze lemon  juices over the top.

  • 4.

    Add the squeezed skins to the pan too along with heads of garlic. Pour over the wine & water and combine everything with your hands to distribute the flavours.

  • 5.

    Place lamb shoulders on top.

  • 6.

    Sprinkle with salt & sugar & bake uncovered for 3 ½ hours, basting the lamb with the sauce every hour.
