DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to moderate.
  • Dry fry, five spice, chili, cinnamon and star anise in a small saucepan until fragrant.
  • Then add soy sauce, wine, tamarind, sugar, ginger, garlic, onion and water and mix well.
  • Place lamb in a single layer in a large shallow baking dish and drizzle over the sauce mixture from the saucepan.
  • Bake covered in a moderate oven, turning the lamb occasionally for about 2 hours or until the meat is falling off the bone.
  • Remove lamb from the dish and keep warm while you skim any excess fat.
  • Strain the sauce into a small saucepan and boil for about 2 minutes. Put lamb onto serving plates and pour sauce over and serve with green steam vegetable.
  • If you are not on a diet serve with rice or mash potato.
  • This could also be made in a large dutch oven on top of the stove.
