  1. Preheat oven to 170 degree centigrade or 325 degree fahrenheit.
  2. Heat the butter in a large casserole and seal the lamb on all sides until golden brown all over. Take out the lamb from the casserole and put aside. Put in the carrots, cover and simmer over low heat for 5 minutes. Add the onions, cover and simmer for another 5 minutes.
  3. Add the bouquet garni into the casserole and put the lamb back in. Pour over the white wine and boil for 3 minutes.
  4. Transfer everything into a large deep oven going dish.
  5. Add 2 litres of water, garlic and season to taste with the salt and pepper.
  6. Cover the oven dish with aluminium foil and carefully seal all the edges.
  7. Put into the oven and cook for four hours. Check every hour to ensure that the stock comes halfway up the lamb. Add more water if necessary. After four hours, the meat should be as soft as butter.
  8. Carefully remove the lamb from the oven dish and place on a serving dish.
  9. Pass the stock through a sieve, crush the garlic cloves into a paste and stir into the stock.
  10. Check the seasoning and season again if necessary. Pour the sauce on the lamb.
  11. Enjoy.
