Middle Eastern Shredded Lamb with Chickpea Pilaf (Rice)

45 · 40 minutes · I can't say with certainty that this is authentic because it's a recipe I created. But it uses classic Middle Eastern ingredients, so possibly it is! The lamb is really juicy because it's made with lamb shoulder, a cut that is made for slow cooking. The pan frying step to get the crunchy brown bits is not optional - it's key! ! ! As with any shredded meat recipe, a little goes a long way. This makes around 8 cups of shredded lamb which I think is enough to serve 8 people as a main (with rice). See separate recipe below for Chickpea Pilaf (Rice).

13 ingredients

  • 1 1/2 kg Lamb shoulder, bone in
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Coriander, ground
  • 1 Coriander/cilantro, Fresh
  • 3 Garlic cloves
  • 1 Lemon
Baking & Spices
  • 1 Black pepper
  • 2 tsp Cardamon, ground
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Paprika
  • 1 tbsp Salt
Oils & Vinegars
  • 4 tbsp Olive oil
Nuts & Seeds
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Cumin, ground
  • 1 Yoghurt
  • 3/4 cup Water
