Lemon & Herb Shredded Lamb on Orzo

Number of Portions


- 30 grams Schwartz Lemon & Herb Wings Seasoning
- 2-2.5 kg shoulder of lamb
- 2 onions, sliced
- 1 whole bulb of garlic, broken into cloves
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 800 grams can chopped tomatoes
- 1.2 lt hot chicken or vegetable stock
- 400 grams orzo pasta
- 200 grams freshly grated parmesan to serve


Heat oven to 160°C/325°F/Gas Mark 3.

In a roasting tray, place the lamb on the sliced onion with the garlic. Cover with foil and roast for 1½ hours. Remove the foil and bake for a further hour or until the lamb falls off the bone.

Shred the meat and mix some of the juices with the Schwartz Lemon & Herb Wings Seasoning.

Pour the chopped tomatoes and stock into a pan and then stir in the orzo. Cover, then cook for a further 20 mins, stirring halfway through. The orzo should be cooked and the sauce thickened.

Sprinkle with grated parmesan and serve with the shredded lamb.
