Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 300°F
  2. Make many small incisions in lamb, place slivers of garlic in each incision.
  3. Rub lamb well with olive oil, season with salt & pepper. (At this point I would brown the lamb on all sides—but that’s not necessary.)
  4. Place it in Dutch oven and add onions, carrots, bouquet garni, garlic, wine. Put lid on Dutch oven.
  5. Combine flour and water, make a 'caulk' and use it to seal the lid to the dutch oven.
  6. Place it in the 300 degree oven and cook for 7 hours. Yes, 7 hours. (no peeking--leave it alone.).
  7. Remove the Dutch oven and break the seal. You don't have to eat the cooked flour paste.
