A decent shoulder of lamb is always impressive however you cook it – this way is simple, tasty and really shows off the meat.
- Pre-heat your water bath to 56°C
- Open up the shoulder of lamb – ‘butterfly’ – and make small ½ cuts on the flesh side.
- Heavily season the shoulder with the dry cure and refrigerate for 12 hours.
- After 12 hours, rinse the lamb under cold running water to remove all of the dry cure, pat dry with kitchen towel.
- At this point re-tie the shoulder to its original shape.
- Cover the lamb in the masala butter, put in a pouch and vac-seal
- Place the pouch into your bath for 72 hours.
- Keep checking the bath to make sure the water is covering the pouch.
- Remove the shoulder of lamb from the pouch and finish off on a BBQ or in a griddle pan.
- Or, you can place the pouch in ice water until cold and keep in the fridge for up to three days.
Regenerate from cold – place the pouch in your water bath at 56°C for 1 hour 30 minutes and finish on a BBQ or griddle pan.
- Chef’s Tip – Use sun-dried tomatoes and basil, blended to a paste instead of the masala butter.
- Dish Suggestion – BBQ Spiced Lamb with Garden Herb Salad
