This Slow Roast Lamb Shoulder Recipe is super simple to make and takes just 10 minutes of prep time.
It is also made with just a few simple ingredients: that being fresh sage, fresh rosemary, fresh sage, salt and pepper and a olive oil.
The shoulder is then placed into one oven safe pot and then is baked slowly for three hours.
Making it moist, tender and absolutely delicious!
This recipe is something special, if you have never tried lamb shoulder before.
Then this fool proof recipe is sure to impress.
I like to serve this meal with some mashed potatoes, gravy (which is made with the lamb sauce) and a salad.

This results in way to many house fires each year and I do not want to be responsible for that.
