How to Cook Stuffed Shoulder of Lamb
- Being boned, the lamb can be "unrolled" to lay almost flat. Lay it, skin side down on a board. Peel and slice one garlic clove and crush the other. Peel and chop the shallots. Break the fresh rosemary sprigs in pieces and place half in a roasting pan (for the moment).
- Put the crushed garlic plus the chopped herbs (sage, parsley, thyme and chopped rosemary) with the shallots and ginger in a mixing bowl and add salt and freshly ground pepper to taste. Mix this well then spread it over the lamb. Roll the lamb up to completely enclose this 'stuffing'.
- Secure the meat with string and then make small incisions in the surface, inserting a garlic slice into each incision. Lay the remaining rosemary (the pieces that you put aside in the roasting tin) on top of the lamb.
- Cook in a preheated moderate oven (Mk 4 - 350ºF - 180ºC) for 90 minutes. The meat inside should still be slightly pink. Allow to stand for 10 minutes before carving and serving.
GRAHAM'S HOT TIP:
Before crushing or slicing the garlic, cut the cloves down the middle long-ways and remove the central 'germ' (the thin stem that looks like a pale green or translucent vein). You will still be able to enjoy the flavour without the "Garlic Dragon" after-effects.
Reviews of Stuffed Shoulder of Lamb
September 06 2014
This recipe is a true winner. The taste of the filling is a perfect match for the lamb. I was lucky enough to have my butcher offer to stuff it and net it for me, so I simply took the filling along and that worked out well for me. The cooking timings were perfect too. As a lamb lover, this will easily turn into my go-to recipe, it is truly wonderful.

What To Eat Tonight
Those wonderful beasts that just scream for something hot and tasty between toasted bread or buns. Once tasted, never forgotten!
Who doesn't like Chinese food? I've yet to meet anyone who doesn't just love the fusion of flavours, colours and ideas.
The smoke, the sizzle, the aroma, yeah - it's time for BBQ but don't buy scrappy steaks if you want to eat like a king.

This is a beautiful way to cook and serve a complete row of lamb cutlets. You will need to buy the cutlets from your butcher and ask him to 'chine' it
Spiced Parsnip Shepherd's Pie is a great way to prepare a pie with a difference. You can use either lamb or beef according to your personal preference
This is basic cuisine with extraordinary results. It doesn't have to be complicated to be tasty. Lamb chops are equally good whether grilled or fried.
