Guilainn Chaoireola I Dtaosran (Lamb Shoulder in Pastry)

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Main Dish, Meat

 Ingredients List

  • 12 oz Shortcrust or flaky pastry
  • 3 lb Boned shoulder of lamb
  • 6 tb Butter
  • 1 tb Mixed chopped herbs
  • Salt and black pepper
  • Milk or egg to glaze


Make the pastry and chill for at least 1 hour before using. See that the
lamb is fairly free of fat, and securely tied: put in a roasting pan and
rub with about a third of the butter. Put into a very hot oven, 450F for
20-30 minutes. Take out and allow to cool slightly. Miz the remaining
butter with the herbs, salt and pepper. Roll out the pastry to a piece
large enough to wrap around the joint. Carefully remove the string from
the lamb, trying to retain the shape. Put it in the center of the pastry,
dampen the edges, and draw the pastry up over the top: secure well by
squeezing the pastry ends and edges together. Turn over so that the fold
is underneath, and put on a baking sheet. Prick all over the top lightly
with a fork, then brush with either the milk or beaten egg. Put into 400F
oven and cook for about 1/2 hour, or until the pastry is nicely browned.
Turn the sheet once during baking to make sure the browning is even. Serve,
cut into fairly thick slices.
