Heat your oven to 135˚C. In a large Dutch oven or deep ovenproof pot, sear the lamb shoulder on all sides. Remove from the pan and add carrot and onions, cook for a few minutes. Add the garlic cloves whole and cook for another 2 minutes. Add the lamb, water and bay leaves and peppercorns. Bring to a simmer, cover, then put in the oven for 4 to 5 hours. During the braising remove from the oven and after 2 hours turn the lamb shoulder over to coat in braising liquid. When the lamb is tender and falling off the bone, remove from the oven and cool. Once cool enough to handle, pull the lamb into shreds.
