  2. Massage marinade into the lamb shoulder and leave covered in the fridge for at least 2 hours.

  4. Add the onion, carrot, and garlic and cook for 5 minutes or until the vegetables start to soften.

  5. Pour in the bone broth and gently scrape the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon to remove any sediment that has cooked onto the bottom of dish. Add the dates cover with foil.
