Here’s cooking instruction for Lamb Shoulder Bone-In:

1. Preheat your oven to 325°F (163°C).
2. Season the lamb shoulder generously with salt and pepper. You can also add herbs and spices of your choice like rosemary, thyme, garlic powder, or paprika for additional flavor.
3. Heat a large oven-safe skillet or Dutch oven over medium-high heat on the stovetop. Add a tablespoon of cooking oil or butter and allow it to melt.
4. Place the lamb shoulder in the skillet and sear it on all sides until nicely browned. This helps to lock in the juices and adds flavor to the meat.
5. Once the lamb is seared, transfer the skillet or Dutch oven into the preheated oven.
6. Roast the lamb shoulder for about 2 to 2.5 hours, or until it reaches your desired level of doneness. For medium-rare, the internal temperature should be around 145°F (63°C). For medium, aim for 160°F (71°C).
7. It’s a good idea to baste the lamb shoulder with its own juices every 30 minutes or so to keep it moist and flavorful.
8. Once cooked to your liking, remove the lamb shoulder from the oven and tent it loosely with aluminum foil. Let it rest for about 10-15 minutes to allow the juices to redistribute throughout the meat.
9. After resting, slice the lamb shoulder against the grain and serve it with your favorite side dishes or sauces.

Enjoy your delicious lamb shoulder bone-in!
