Greek roasted shoulder of lamb with potatoes


  • Preheat the oven to 200* C (392* F) set to fan.
  • Cut the garlic cloves in half.
  • Place the lamb shoulder onto a working surface. Use a small, sharp knife and score the meat in various spots all over the lamb, and insert the garlic in the openings.
  • Transfer the lamb into a baking pan and roast for 20 minutes, until it turns golden on one side. Turn it over and roast for 20 more minutes, until golden on the other side, too.
  • Peel the potatoes and cut them into 2 cm slices. Add them to a pot with boiling water and boil for 10 minutes. Drain and set aside to cool.
  • Remove the roasting pan from the oven and take the lamb out of it.
  • In this roasting pan, add the stock, the potatoes and place the lamb over them.
  • Cover with aluminum foil, lower the oven's temperature to 140* C (284* F) set to fan, and roast again for 3 ½ hours, until the meat becomes very tender.
  • Remove the lamb from the pan.
  • Use a tablespoon to remove 3 spoonfuls of the juice from the baking pan and transfer to a saucepan.
  • Place the saucepan over medium heat and add the flour.
  • Whisk until you create a paste. Add the wine and gradually add the stock and strawberry jam.
  • Whisk until the sauce thickens and bubbles appear on the surface. Remove from the heat and add some thyme.
  • Serve lamb and potatoes with the sauce on the side.
