Slow Cooked Lamb Shoulder With Urab Salad and Potato Mash

1. Make rendang marinade. Blitz all ingredients in a food processor until smooth, adding some water if needed. Rub this over the lamb and leave to marinade overnight.

2. The next day, preheat oven to 130C. Bring stock to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer.

3. Heat oil in a pan and sear the marinated lamb until golden brown, then place in a roasting tray with the
carrots, onions and celery. Cover the meat with the hot stock, then roast in the oven for about 3 hrs, or until
fork tender.

4. Make urab salad dressing. In a dry pan, toast all the aromatics until fragrant, and then tip into a blender with the shrimp paste to make a purée. Add a little water to ease the blending along.

5. Fry the purée in oil until fragrant. Add coconut milk and grated coconut, and season with salt and pepper. Give it a good stir, then remove from heat and set aside to cool.

6. Meanwhile, slice the salad vegetables into bite-sized pieces.

7. Blanch the beans, sprouts and cabbage, if you wish. In a bowl, combine all the ingredients except the fried
shallots and garlic. Set aside.

8. During the last hour of cooking, boil the potatoes in lightly salted water until tender.

9. In a separate saucepan, bring cream to a boil while you mash the potatoes. Stir in the cream and butter, and mix until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. To serve, reheat mash with some butter and cream.

10. When lamb is cooked, season with salt and pepper. Toss the salad with the dressing and garnish with fried shallots and garlic. Serve lamb with mash and salad.
