2 – 4 people


  • 1 x 2kg Coles Slow Cook Lamb Shoulder (bone in), trimmed of excess fat
  • 2 teaspoons Coles whole cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon Coles ground cinnamon
  • Sea salt and pepper
  • Coles Baking paper
  • Coles Aluminum foil


  • 2 large heads broccoli, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup (80ml) Cobram Estate Classic EVOO
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1/2 cup pistachio nuts
  • 1/2 cup roast almonds, chopped
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds, toasted
  • 1 large pomegranate, seeds removed (around 1 cup)
  • 1/3 cup currants
  • 1/2 bunch flat leaf parsley, chopped, plus extra to serve
  • 1/2 bunch mint, chopped


  • 1 Tablespoon tahini paste
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2/3 cup Coles Greek yoghurt
  • 1 tablespoon honey



  • Preheat the oven to 170 degrees. Place the lamb into a deep sided baking tray and scatter with the cumin, cinnamon, seas salt and pepper. Pour 1 cup of water into the bottom of the tray and cover the lamb with baking paper and seal with foil. Bake for 4 hours, then remove the foil and bake for a further 30 minutes at 200 degrees C to crisp up the outside of the lamb.
  • While the lamb is resting, heat 20ml of the olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a high heat. Add the broccoli, season with a pinch of sea salt and cook for 2 minutes to slightly soften the broccoli, but leave it with a bit of crunch. Remove the broccoli from the pan and place in a large bowl to cool slightly.
  • Whisk together remaining 40ml of olive oil with the lemon zest, lemon juice, honey and a pinch of sea salt and set aside.
  • Whisk together all the tahini dressing ingredients with a pinch of sea salt until smooth.
  • Mix all the remaining tabbouleh ingredients into the broccoli and pour over the reserved lemon dressing. Toss well to coat then place onto a platter or serving bowls. Top with pieces of lamb and drizzle over the tahini dressing. Garnish with extra parsley and lemon wedges.
