I made the lamb tonight for Christmas eve dinner - it was delish! 2 smallish lamb shoulders (bone in) fit in my largest pot - we had it with couscous (w butternut squash, lemons, pine nuts, golden raisins), naan, raita, and a salad with warm goat cheese and oranges :) Thanks for the great recipe!

Your lamb looks gourgeous, I could eat all that shown in the picture. And yes, they want low heat and patience.
Every 6th of January my brother cooks cochinillo (it's the 3 kings day celebration here) and it's the only time a year he spends so much time in the kitchen... nearly 6 hours and also flipping and throwing the juice on top... hard job, but there is nothing more tender than that!!! I've never cooked it though.

2008-03-11T04:41:00.000-07:00

Love lamb, though have never cooked shoulder before. This recipe is right up my street though!

Hope you're feeling better - how lucky is your husband that you cook even when laid up!!

2008-03-10T14:21:00.000-07:00

I can imagine how good the lamb was and yes, the shoulder is the best cut for long-slow-fall-off-the-bone cooking.

2008-03-10T07:20:00.000-07:00

I love the rub recipe (and how to apply it as well!) I'm going to give it a shot on the next lamb dish!

2008-03-09T11:53:00.000-07:00

....and I'm back!

Court - you can come over any time you want, hunny!

Em - isn't it funny how that is like the basic move of every guy?

Petah - "a symphony of flavors" - that's awfully sweet.

Pix - lamb has really been getting around now that it's spring, hasn't it?

Chuck - I believe the Beastie Boys put it best when they said "Let it flow, let yourself go. Low and slow that is the tempo." By "tempo" they meant temperature, I just know it.

Jen - this would be great with pork shoulder.

Judy - aw, shucks. But I'm sure your DH prefers sweet, purty girls like you over sailor mouths like me. :)

Valli - it is a labor of love! Cooking never really feels like work to me.

Cookworm - Slow cookin' is great for weekends!

Nikki - Haha! I would normally agree with you about the fat, but lamb fat has too much strong flavor for me to just eat alone. :P

Michelle - Ben Affleck IS a waste of perfectly good hair. But he was funny in his bromance for Jimmy Kimmel.

Jenn - cooking for wayward boys is the best, isn't it? It's like practicing for grandmotherhood.

Amy - you nailed it. Regular couscous is like eating little puffs of air.

Ivy - this is such an easy way to cook it when you do make lamb. I'm surprised to hear a Greek say she doesn't eat much lamb! :)

2008-03-08T07:55:00.000-08:00

That massage part was the best and although I am not a fan of lamb, I occasionally eat some and this is something I would definitely try.

2008-03-07T11:52:00.000-08:00

i majorly heart israeli couscous. i actually feel like i'm eating something, which is not a feeling i get often from regular couscous. i also heart lamb - you could do this w/ a pork shoulder/butt as well and i bet it would be fabu.

and you're right about the affleck's - i'm still not sure why ben was ever popular. he acted better in the horrid j-lo video when he was "feelin' up her booootie" and pretended to be attracted to her.

2008-03-07T09:20:00.000-08:00

That looks great Heather! I do so enjoy lamb and a nice hearty Israeli couscous. I get the same way youdo about cooking for people who really appreciate a nice home cooked meal! :) Nice job!

2008-03-07T08:27:00.000-08:00

i'm totally making this. yum.

ben affleck is a waste of a good head of hair.

2008-03-06T11:45:00.000-08:00

"...something that can only be dished up by a nice lady in an apron."

A nice lady in an apron. I was telling my mom about your blog and that's exactly what I told her. :)

I love your lamb. I really doing dig israeli couscous but yours looks pretty good.

That extra fat...straight up gravy! That's what I would have made. Dip that flat bread in there... Yeah, boy!

2008-03-06T07:00:00.000-08:00

This recipe is exactly the kind of lamb dish I love...can't wait to try it! Long slow cooking is the best.

2008-03-06T05:47:00.000-08:00

These guys are lucky to have you slaving in the kitchen for them...even when you're gimped Heather.The slow roasted lamb probably fell off of the bone:D

2008-03-06T05:01:00.000-08:00

I could never show your blog to my DH. I think he would instantly fall in love with you! Another great dish!

2008-03-06T04:31:00.000-08:00

The presentation is gorgeous! I'm not big on lamb, but I might try this with a pork shoulder.

2008-03-06T00:00:00.000-08:00

"Massage that shit in like you're warming up a girl you want to get into bed."

LOL! I will always have that thought in my head when I see lamb shoulder now. The shredded lamb looks great! I love low and slow roasting.

2008-03-05T23:07:00.000-08:00

How fortunate of your husband's friends! That lamb looks wonderful, I just love lamb. YUM!



Wow! Thats all I can say...you leave me speechles...

2008-03-05T23:02:00.000-08:00

Wow! Thats all I can say...you leave me speechless with your creations! The marinade, the cooking technique and the cous cous all worl so well together. A great symphony of flavours heather.

2008-03-05T21:51:00.000-08:00

Massage that shit in like you're warming up a girl you want to get into bed.
I love that!

I bet those boys will be back for some more of your home cookin.

This looks very good. I've never had Israeli couscous, but I want to try it.
Oh also, I agree about Casey Affleck. I watched him in this movie called Lonesome Jim, and he was really good in it.

2008-03-05T21:02:00.000-08:00

Heather can I come to your house for vacation and you cook for me.Pretty please?



Ben - Thanks! I was gonna send this to you for you...

2008-03-05T20:14:00.000-08:00

Ben - Thanks! I was gonna send this to you for your springtime recipe thang, but I want to do something more original for that. :)

Syd - He does. I rub his fucking nose in it all the time.

Amanda - I know it sounds racist, but look in the Jewish section of the grocery store, like where they sell matzo and gefilte fish. That's where I found it! :P

Peter the Greek - I don't know about your apple pie trick. I'm afraid! Meat and pie are very different beasts.

Peter Back East - I know, I know, I just wanted to have jus right then! I even have a special sifty-type spatula I use for lifting off the fat puck from my stocks. Sometimes I save the fat (esp. chicken) to throw into mashed potatoes. :P



If you have enough time, freeze the liquid and jus...

2008-03-05T19:53:00.000-08:00

If you have enough time, freeze the liquid and just lift the fat right off.

Try adding espresso and garlic to your rub, and grill or roast it for a bit before the long slow braise...

2008-03-05T19:50:00.000-08:00

Lamb shoulder is tastier than the leg but yeah, trim some fat.

As for your lamb rubbing technique, I can match you with an apple pie trick!

That looks amazing! Now if only I could find Israeli couscous in Alabama...

I hope your husband knows that he hit the culinary jackpot when he snagged you.
