Notes about this recipe

    The best thing about this recipe is that the large amount of liquid (red wine + plum tomatoes in their sauce) keeps the lamb beautifully moist and can be whizzed up to create a lovely gravy at the end. The last two recipes for lamb shoulder that I tried, by Nigella and Ottolenghi, left me with quite dry lamb and no sauce. That said, the flavour combinations of this one weren't particularly outstanding, it was a bit too tomato-y. I added some sugar while blitzing the sauce, which definitely helped. I've saved half the shoulder and sauce to make the shepherd's pie recipe tomorrow.

    Useful recipe for low key roast when just four of us as put it all in the one dish then leave it. The sauce was made by blitzing everything else but only finely chopping the lamb. I would do it again but not for guests.
