Sticky braised lamb
- 1 kg boneless lamb necks
- 2.5 lt chicken stock
- ½ lt kejap manis
- 1 lt light soy sauce
- ½ lt oyster sauce
- 5 bay leaves
- 150g garlic cloves peeled
- 250g shallots, peeled and roughly chopped
- 100g ginger grated
- 10g lemon zest
- Heat a pan and drizzle some oil in it. Brown the lamb necks all over and place in a ½ size bain marie tray. Deglaze the pan with the chicken stock, then add all of the other ingredients. Stir to mix and bring to a simmer.
- Pour over the lamb and cover. Cook at 84°C overnight. Remove the next day from the liquid and chill the lamb necks. Keep some of the braising liquid to glaze the lamb, reducing it down to the point where it’s thick and tasty, but not salty.

- Drain the chickpeas the next day and place in a pot. Cover with water, add the bi carb soda and bring to the boil.
- Skim the surface and turn down to simmer, then cook the chickpeas until they are mushy.
- Drain and chill the chickpeas, then blend in the food processor until smooth. Add the miso paste, citric acid and the tahini paste and blend to combine.
