    Love this recipe. most times I am not a plan ahead cook. About an hour before I want to eat I look at the pantry and plan. Most lamb shoulder recipes called for braising and cooking 2-3 hrs. This one fit my style. I prepared as directed but added a few sprigs of rosemary growing in my window and instead of water added 1/2 cup of leftover red wine. The meat was perfectly tender and flavorful and the pan sauce was great over potatoes. This will definitely be one I prepare again.

    This is a great recipe as is; however, I had to add 3/4 tablespoon of seasoning salt and a tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce to get the best flavour. I will definitely keep this as my go-to recipe and simply make these two additions. Thanks for posting this recipe.
