  • Season the lamb with sea salt and black pepper.
  • Heat olive oil in a large frying pan.
  • Sear the lamb shoulder on all sides until nicely browned.
  • Peel the shallots and the small red onions and halve. Place them at the bottom of the slow cooker.
  • Peel the garlic cloves and add them to the slow cooker, along with the rosemary and the thyme, and then place the lamb over the top.
  • Season with plenty of black pepper and a little more sea salt.
  • You could also add in carrots, potatoes, or any other vegetables if you wanted to slow cook these too and make the whole dish in one pan!
  • Pour over the stock, the red wine and the balsamic vinegar. Cook on high for 4-6 hours or low for 6-8 hours. The lamb should fall off the bone.
  • If you would like, you can blend the onions and the garlic into the sauce with a hand blender, but we like to leave ours as it is. Serve with mashed potatoes (try this Sicilian Style Mashed Potatoes Recipe) with a big glug of Rosemary & Garlic Infused Olive Oildrizzled into it, and a trickle of our rich Reserve Balsamic
