A decent shoulder of lamb is always impressive however you cook it – this way is simple, tasty and really shows off the meat.


  1. Pre-heat your water bath to 56°C
  2. Open up the shoulder of lamb – ‘butterfly’ – and make small ½ cuts on the flesh side.
  3. Heavily season the shoulder with the dry cure and refrigerate for 12 hours.
  4. After 12 hours, rinse the lamb under cold running water to remove all of the dry cure, pat dry with kitchen towel.
  5. At this point re-tie the shoulder to its original shape.
  6.  Cover the lamb in the masala butter, put in a pouch and vac-seal
  7.  Place the pouch into your bath for 72 hours.
  8.  Keep checking the bath to make sure the water is covering the pouch.
  9.  Remove the shoulder of lamb from the pouch and finish off on a BBQ or in a griddle pan.
  10.  Or, you can place the pouch in ice water until cold and keep in the fridge for up to three days.

Regenerate from cold – place the pouch in your water bath at 56°C for 1 hour 30 minutes and finish on a BBQ or griddle pan.

  • Chef’s Tip – Use sun-dried tomatoes and basil, blended to a paste instead of the masala butter.
  • Dish Suggestion – BBQ Spiced Lamb with Garden Herb Salad
