You will need

2 – 2.5 kg lamb shoulder on the bone, with shank attached
Ina Paarman’s Rosemary & Olive Seasoning
Ina Paarman’s Sticky Plum & Soy Marinade & Baste


Adjust the oven rack, one shelf below the middle and preheat oven to 125°C.

Wet the meat with a little water and season the lamb all over with a generous amount of Rosemary & Olive Seasoning. Rub it in well.

Place the shoulder on a rack over a roasting pan.

Pour 2 cups (500 ml) of water in, on the side, to prevent the fat drippings from smoking.

Roast for 4 – 5 hours.

Remove from the oven and coat with Sticky Plum & Soy Marinade & Baste. Finish off on a very slow braai fire while basting regularly.
