Your first taste: Braised shoulder of lamb with onions
We’re already in the middle of the countdown to “Lamb & fawn”. How about a first taste? Our chef Christian Kastenmeier presents an exclusive recipe for four persons. Cook his excellent braised lamb shoulder with onions at home!
Shoulder of lamb:
- 1 to 1.2 kg shoulder of lamb
- 3 cloves of garlic
- 1 bunch of thyme
- 1 bunch of rosemary
- Black pepper
Clean the shoulder of lamb and sear it on both sides in a pain with oil. Put the meat into a vacuum bag with the remaining ingredients and vacuum-pack. Cook for twelve hours in a bain-marie at 69 °C. Then weigh it down in the bag, press it flat, and let it cool down while weighted down. Remove everything from the bag and put the gravy aside. Portion the lamb and trim into squares. Put aside. Put into the oven at 160 °C before serving and brush with the reduced lamb jus two to three times (approx. eight minutes).
- 300 ml brown lamb stock
- Juices from the shoulder of lamb
- 2 tbsp butter for creaming
Reduce the lamb stock and gravy until it forms a glacé, then cream with butter. Season to taste with salt and pepper and bring to the boil again, then pass through a micro sieve and put aside.
Roast onion crème:
- 2 red onions
- 40 g butter
- 100 ml red wine
- 150 g roast onions
- 65 g raisins
- 110 g veal jus, boiled down
- Salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, raisin liqueur
Cut onions into strips and sauté in butter, season with salt, pepper & a little sugar. Deglaze with red wine and reduce until the red wine is boiled down and the onions are soft. Finely blend the mixture with the fried onions, raisins, veal jus and season to taste with salt, cayenne pepper and raisin liqueur.
- 2 large silver onions.
- 30 g Butter
- Consommé for basting
- Oil for frying
Peel the onions, cut them in half lengthways and fry in a pain with oil until they get a nice dark colour. Season with salt and pepper and the consommé. Add butter, spices and herbs and stew in the oven at 160 °C until soft.
