Ingredients
 

  • 2.5 kg lean lamb shoulder, bone in
  • 1 kg medium sized peeled potatoes, cut into long quarters
  • 4 beef tomatoes, cut into quarters
  • 2 red peppers, de-seeded and cut into quarters
  • 200 water
  • 1 lamb stock cube
  • 200 g cubed feta cheese, optional

For the Marinade

  • 2 lemons, juice
  • 6 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 100 ml Greek olive oil

Instructions
 

  • Pre-heat the oven to 180C gas 4.
  • Make deep incisions into the whole shoulder right down to the bone, every 3-4 cm in a crisscross fashion.
  • Mix together all the ingredients for the marinade together really well. Pour over both sides of the lamb and rub in well. You can leave overnight if you want; it is up to you.
  • Place the potatoes into a deep baking dish or tray, then add the tomatoes and peppers.
  • Place the marinated lamb on top plus any marinade that is left over.
  • Pour in the water and the stock cube crumbled up and a little more salt and pepper.
  • Cover with baking parchment and foil, pop into the oven and cook for 2 hours.
  • At the 2-hour mark, remove the foil and parchment, turn the oven up to 220C gas 7 and cook the dish until it takes a nice colour, say 30 minutes.
  • Once browned, remove the lamb from the tray and rest. Add the cheese to the potatoes and warm through.
  • Serve in thick slices with the peppers, potatoes and tomatoes.
  • I serve a Greek salad separately.
