Step 6: Place into the preheated oven and cook for 4 to 5 hours or until the lamb starts to fall off the bone. This timing well depend on your oven.
Step 7: Remove from the oven and allow to rest. As soon as you can handle the bag, siphon off the juices by cutting one corner of the bag and put into a jug and sit in the fridge to start to congeal the fat.
Step 8: Rest for 30 minutes with the lamb still surrounded by the bag.
Step 9: As soon as the fat begins to congeal in the jug in the fridge; take as much off as you can and then quickly heat the remaining juices to pour over the lamb when serving.
