Slow-cooked lamb shoulder on a bed of leek
( SERVES 4 )
Leeks benefit from long, slow cooking, mingling with other flavours over time. Put this lamb on before heading out to work for the day and arrive home to wonderful smells and dinner almost ready to serve. It also works well cooked the day before, allowing it to cool, then you can remove any excess fat that has settled on the top.
- Warm the oil in a frying pan. Add the leek and garlic, cooking for 10 minutes until softened. Place them into the base of a slow-cooker.
- In the same pan, sear the lamb all over until browned. Place on top of the leeks. Add the paprika, tomatoes, zest, wine, stock, rosemary, tomatoes, beans, salt and pepper. Cover and place in the slow cookeron slow for 8 hours.
- Shred the lamb before serving with your favourite mashed potatoes.
