  • 2 lbs (about 1 kg) boneless lamb shoulder, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 4 large red bell peppers
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish
  • Lemon wedges, for serving


Step 1: Prepare the Red Peppers

  1. Preheat the broiler in your oven.
  2. Cut the red bell peppers in half and remove the seeds and membranes.
  3. Place the pepper halves, cut side down, on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil.
  4. Broil the peppers for 8-10 minutes, or until the skins are charred and blistered.
  5. Remove the peppers from the oven and transfer them to a bowl. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let the peppers steam for 10 minutes.
  6. Once the peppers are cool enough to handle, peel off the charred skins and slice the peppers into thin strips.

Step 2: Marinate the Lamb

  1. In a large bowl, combine the cubed lamb shoulder, minced garlic, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, dried oregano, dried thyme, smoked paprika, salt, and black pepper.
  2. Toss the lamb until evenly coated in the marinade.
  3. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or up to overnight, to allow the flavors to meld.

Step 3: Cook the Lamb

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Heat a large skillet or Dutch oven over medium-high heat.
  3. Add the marinated lamb cubes to the skillet in a single layer, making sure not to overcrowd the pan.
  4. Sear the lamb cubes on all sides until browned, about 2-3 minutes per side.
  5. Once the lamb is browned, transfer it to a baking dish or roasting pan.
  6. Arrange the roasted red pepper strips on top of the lamb.

Step 4: Roast the Lamb and Red Peppers

  1. Cover the baking dish or roasting pan with aluminum foil.
  2. Place the dish in the preheated oven and roast for 45-60 minutes, or until the lamb is tender and cooked to your desired doneness.
  3. Remove the foil during the last 15 minutes of cooking to allow the lamb to brown slightly.
  4. Once the lamb is cooked through, remove it from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes before serving.

Step 5: Serve and Garnish

  1. Transfer the roasted red peppers with lamb to a serving platter.
  2. Garnish with freshly chopped parsley.
  3. Serve hot, with lemon wedges on the side for squeezing over the lamb.
