4 whole lamb necks
Olive oil
1 cup yoghurt
Parsley or coriander

For the spice mix

1 tsp cumin
1 tsp coriander seeds
1 star anise
1 tsp black pepper
3 tbsp paprika

Toast all spices until fragrant. Grind to a fine powder. Put water into the sous-vide machine and set to 65°C.

De-bone the necks, separate the two neck fillets and clean away any excess fat making sure to remove the spinal cord.

Mix two table-spoons of the spice mix with 1 cup of yoghurt. Marinate the necks with the spiced yoghurt, a generous pinch of salt and a splash of olive oil.

Place necks into a cry vac bag and seal on a medium to high setting.

Once vacced, place into the water bath and cook for 4 hours.

Once cooked remove from bags a drain well. In a hot pan or on a BBQ seals all side well to achieve a ‘roasty’ flavour.

Carve into slices and serve on a large platter.

Garnish with a sprinkle of sumac, herbs, chunks of lemon and a bowl of yoghurt on the side.
