I like to serve this meal with some mashed potatoes, gravy (which is made with the lamb sauce) and a salad.

While you do whatever else it is you need to do for the day/evening. 

But please for the love of GOD do not leave the house with the oven on.

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

HOW TO COOK LAMB SHOULDER IN THE OVEN

It is REAL easy, since everything is down in one pot. Basically all your going to have to do is spend less than 5 minutes seasoning it, then you will want to cover it with a oven safe lid.
