Help! I've promised my family lamb for Easter Sunday and I've never cooked it before (hubby is vegetarian). I don't like messing around with bones or handling meat too much, so any easy recipe would be appreciated. Son has a slow cooker I can borrow. Would also appreciate an idea of what veg to serve with it. Thanks :)

This is my recipe - it works for pork shoulder too :


1.5kg boneless shoulder joint, rolled
2 tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic, slice
2 sprigs fresh thyme
Splash of soy sauce
a bit of Dijon Mustard
500ml red wine + stock mixed - or a use a bottle of Guinness + stock
Salt and freshly ground
1.5 lb spuds in quite big pieces
1lb carrots in smaller peices
1 medium sized onion - peeled and halved
black pepper

Preheat the oven to 160C or Gas 3. Season the lamb shoulder. Heat the oil in a flame-proof casserole dish and brown the lamb on all sides. Add the garlic, mustard and thyme and all the veg to the pan and pour in the liquids. Cover the pan and cook in the oven for about two and a half hours until the lamb is tender and cooked through.

Remove the lid for the last 30 minutes for the meat to brown. Once the lamb is cooked, remove lamb and veg from the pan and leave to rest on a warm plate for a few minutes. Simmer the lamb juices to reduce by half (or thicken with some cornflour). Strain into a warmed gravy boat and keep warm.

Serve with some nice fresh greens - and perhaps cauli cheese

Enjoy :)
