  1. Prepare the Lamb Shoulder

    • Season the lamb and sear in oil in a large rondeau. Remove and set aside.
    • In the same pan, add the onion, celery, carrots and garlic and cook until vegetables are browned. Add the tomato paste and cook 5 minutes more. Deglaze with white wine and add the brown sugar. Add the rosemary.
    • Return the lamb to the pan, add enough prepared Knorr® Liquid Concentrated Base Chicken to cover and bring to a simmer. Cover and braise in a 325F oven for about 3.5 hours until the lamb is fork tender.
    • Shred the lamb. Strain the vegetables from the liquid, and add enough liquid back to the shredded lamb to coat.

    • Place in a bowl, shred ¼ cup asiago over top and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil.
