2 tablespoons olive oil

Orange dressing

80ml olive oil
20ml red wine vinegar
2 clove garlic, crushed

Greek yoghurt to serve



1. Pre-heat the oven on Fan Plus at 220°C.
2. Combine all the marinade spices in a small bowl with the oil.
3. Lightly score the skin side of the lamb. Place skin side down in a lightly oiled, medium Gourmet oven dish and season generously with salt and pepper.
4. Rub over half the spice oil then turn over. Season and rub in the remaining spice oil.
5. Place in the oven and roast for 10 minutes to sear the lamb.
6. Remove the lamb from the oven. Select Combination Mode: Fan plus at 120°C + 80% moisture + 3 hours 30 minutes. You will be prompted to “open oven door to cool down”.
7. While the oven is cooling, add the onions and garlic to the pan, pushing some of them under the lamb. Season and then pour the red wine and stock into the dish, but not over the meat.
8. Cook the lamb for 31⁄2 hours, or until it pulls apart easily with a fork.
9. Transfer the lamb onto a plate and cover to keep warm.
10. Place oven dish onto the Induction, remove any surface fat, and then squeeze in the flesh from 4 of the cooked garlic cloves. Cook on high heat, Induction setting 8, for 5 minutes.
11. Return the lamb to the sauce and while the carrots are cooking shred the meat using two forks.
