Stuffed shoulder of lamb


Serves: 4
Time to make: 2 mins, prep 30 mins, cook 90 mins
Total cost: $18.56 / $4.61 per serve

  • 2 slices white sandwich bread, roughly chopped
  • 1/3 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/4 cup 97% fat free semi-dried tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon baby capers
  • 1 egg
  • 1kg boned shoulder of lamb, fat trimmed
  • 3/4 cup salt-reduced chicken stock
  • 500g potatoes, cut into 2cm cubes
  • olive oil spray
  • 1 tablespoon plain flour
  • steamed pumpkin and beans, to serve


Step 1 Preheat oven to 200°C. Using a food processor, blend bread and parsley until they resemble fine breadcrumbs. Place into a bowl. Add tomatoes, capers and egg and stir to combine.

Step 2 Place lamb shoulder onto a flat surface, skin side down. Spread bread mixture over lamb. Roll up to enclose filling and secure with kitchen string. Place into a deep baking dish. Pour stock and 3/4 cup water over lamb. Cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes.

Step 3 Line a baking tray with baking paper. Arrange potatoes on tray. Spray with olive oil and roast for 45-55 minutes, or until potatoes are crisp and golden.

Step 4 Drain pan juices from lamb and set aside for the gravy. Cook lamb, uncovered, for a further 30-35 minutes or until golden. Place lamb onto a chopping board and cover with foil to keep warm.

Step 5 Heat baking dish over medium heat and add flour. Stir until well combined. Remove from heat and gradually add saved meat juices and water (about 1 cup), stirring to combine. Return to heat and cook, stirring, until gravy comes to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 2 minutes or until gravy thickens. Slice lamb. Serve with vegetables and gravy.
