Lamb Marinade

Slow-Cooked Lamb Shoulder

  • Preheat the oven to 275°F. Heat a Dutch oven on a stovetop set to medium-high. Melt ghee and sear lamb shoulder on all sides.
  • Add chicken stock and allow braising liquid to come to a boil. Top with rosemary sprigs.

  • Remove lamb shoulder from oven and let rest covered while baking cauliflower tortillas.

Cauliflower Tortillas

  • Increase the oven heat to 375°F
  • In batches, use a cheese cloth to wring cooked and cooled cauliflower rice until no moisture remains.
  • In a bowl, add the cauliflower rice, along with the egg and remaining ingredients. Mix thoroughly with clean hands or a spatula.
  • Once a sticky dough forms, segment into 6 balls and place on 1-2 cookie sheets greased and lined with parchment paper.
  • Grease the back of the spoon and smooth the dough balls until 6 tortilla shapes form.
  • Place cauliflower tortillas in the oven to bake for 18-20 minutes, flipping halfway through.
  • Once done, allow tortillas to cool for 5-6 minutes.

Lamb Keto Taco Assembly
