  • Lamb Shoulder
  • Preheat oven to 400°C (200°F). Mix the spices. Season the shoulder with salt, pepper and spices. Brown on each side in a pan. Convection bake the shoulder with the herbs and 1.5 litres of water for 3 hours.
  • Remove from oven, debone and roll the meat in plastic wrap, making an evenly shaped roll ¾ in. (2 cm) in diameter. Make sure the wrapping is tight. Set aside. Strain the cooking juice through a China cap or mesh strainer. Reduce juice to desired consistency.
  • Dressing
  • Mix ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, balsamic vinegar and Tabasco sauce together to make the dressing.
  • Tartare
  • Gently mix the ingredients. Thicken the tartare with the dressing.
  • Brick
  • In a small bowl, beat the egg and milk. On a work surface, lay out the brick sheets, a pickled Piquillo pepper, a slice of pulled lamb and a slice of cheese. Season with pepper and top with a slice of sweet pepper. Brush the edge of the sheet with the egg and milk mixture and fold to seal tightly.
  • Arrange the bricks on a non-stick or parchment paper-covered baking sheet. Broil with supervision until brown in colour. To serve, make a line of tartare, drizzle with cooking juice and add the brick.
