  • 1 Shoulder of Lamb
  • 1 small jar of Five spice Paste
  • a little veg/sunflower oil


    1. Preheat the Oven to 150c/fan 120c/gas 2
    2. lightly oil a roast tin with a little oil
    3. place the shoulder of lamb into the roasting tin & spread half of the jar of Chinese 5 spice paste over the shoulder
    4. cook for approx 2 1/2 hours then turn over & cover the side of the shoulder with the remaining paste
    5. roast for approx another 2 1/2 hours, this is rather general as you can keep this in the oven all day in a low oven and the fat from the Shoulder will melt into the meat & keep it moist for several hours.
    6. serve with, if you have them, chinese pancakes or tortilla wraps, hoisin sauce, sliced spring onions, cucumber & spredded lettuce. Enjoy

I made my own 5 spice paste; 1 teaspoon of 5 spice powder, 1 tablespoon of Rice vinegar and a table spoon of Sesame oil. Worked a treat.
