Vince's slow cooked lamb shoulder


  • Preheat oven to 75°C fan forced (95°C normal).
  • Lay the lamb, skin side down, on a workbench and sprinkle with seasonings. Then layer with the rocket, mushrooms and cheese. Carefully roll up the lamb (taking care that nothing falls out) and tie it up with kitchen string to form a neat parcel-shaped shoulder roast.
  • Drizzle the lamb all over with oil, season and place in a large, deep roasting tray. Then cook in the oven for 12 hours (overnight). When ready, set the lamb aside for about 15 mins, before slicing.
  • If you prefer, you can cook the lamb in a 125°C fan forced (145°C normal) oven for 6 hours.
  • Serve the sliced lamb with cooking juices spooned over the top and your favourite salad and/or vegies on the side.
