Boneless Lamb Shoulder. If you like a little more fat than what a lamb leg contains, this is the roast for you. Lamb shoulders are excellent party pieces, you don't even have to cook it, just sit the lamb shoulder in your living room, invite a whole bunch of people, stock up on booze, that's a guaranteed good party.
This meat is easy to cut up for kebabs, stew, even Yaki-Niku.
The best lamb shoulder I ever tasted was made with a 9-hour olive oil confit. You can cook your lamb shoulder however you want though.
We recommend roasting it:
1. Season the meat with crushed garlic, pepper, salt, and oregano, then lather with olive oil. Place everything in a roasting tray.
2. Place roasting tray into the oven and roast uncovered at 200°C for 20 minutes. Reduce the heat down to 160°C and roast the lamb for a further 30 minutes up to an hour.
3. Occasionally baste with the juices from the pan.
4. Remove from the oven and let the meat rest for a while before serving.
The thawing time depends on many factors such as size, weight, packaging, and type of meat. Please refer to our thawing chart ≫here≪
Review of this item
Great cut of meat
Definitely more fat than a leg, but perfect size for Japanese ovens and slow cookers!
I used a few tablespoons of olive oil, 3-5 cloves of garlic crushed and themeatguy' almighty spice mix. I mixed it all together and then covers then sliced the lamb with a knife and covered the lamb with he mixture. I then put it in a roasting tin and covered the tin with foil and baked it at 170 degrees Celsius for 4 hours basting it with its own juices every hour.
For the last hour I added potatoes and carrots and then for the final 20 minutes, I took the foil off. Not was absolutely scrumptious.
I've also made a curry with the left overs.
