Oxford Landing Estates

  • Serves 8
  • About 8 hours. (30 minutes active).



Pre-heat a fan forced oven to 120°C.

Place the lamb shoulder onto a lined baking tray, set aside.

Place the garlic, cumin, peppercorns, salt and half the amount of olive oil into a mixing bowl and combine together well, then massage all over the lamb.

Place into the pre-heated oven and cook for 8 hrs, turn every 2 hrs and baste the shoulder with the pan juices. After this time the meat should be falling off the bone.

Once the lamb is cool enough to handle, pull the meat from the bone using a fork, so that you have all different sizes. Set aside and reserve the pan juices

Add the remaining amount of olive oil into a large non-stick fry pan and place over a high heat.

Add onion and sauté for 3 minutes or until it starts to soften, then add garlic and cook for another 2 minutes.

Next add the preserved lemon and deglaze with the sherry, reduce by 2/3 or until the sherry has become sticky, then add the reserved pan juices, chick peas, raisins and pulled lamb, continue to cook for 2 to 3 minutes to warm the chick peas through, remove from the heat and add the parsley and mix through.

To serve, place onto a platter and dress with extra virgin olive oil and serve warm down the centre of the table.

And to drink?

2019 Merlot

Crimson in colour with purple hues. Enticing aromas of milk chocolate, plum and raspberries with subtle cedar and spices. The medium bodied palate starts with vibrant flavours of plums and although tightly structured, the finish is rich and generous with persistent fruit flavours. Soft, velvety tannins are a feature of the supple palate.

Roast lamb with rosemary and garlic, or asparagus fettuccine with tomato cream sauce would be a lovely accompaniment.

Real Food is for Real People...

We've put together this collection of recipes to show you how we eat around here. It's not really a coincidence that our food is a lot like our wine: authentic, approachable, and as unpretentious as we can possibly make it.

We'll keep adding to this library over the seasons, to give you loads of choice whatever the occasion you're cooking for.
