METHOD

For the Pulled Lamb:

Heat the instant pot according to the book’s instructions on a high heat. Season the lamb well with salt and pepper. Add the olive oil, brown the lamb on all sides and set aside until needed.

Lower the temperature to a low heat, add another dash of olive oil and fry the onion, carrot and celery until browned. Add the browned lamb, garlic bulbs, bouquet garni, stock and wine.

Close the pot and cook on pressure cooker for about 50 minutes.

Remove the garlic and lamb from the sauce and set aside until needed. On a high heat, reduce the sauce until syrupy.

Pull the lamb and combine again with the sauce.

For the Garlic Sriracha Mayo:

Place all ingredients into a jug or small bowl and use the hand blender to blend until smooth. Season to taste.

For the Red Onion Pickle:

Place the sugar, vinegar, and rosemary in a small saucepan and heat while stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from the heat and allow to cool until it reaches room temperature. Add the onion slices and allow to pickle until needed. You can store this in an airtight jar in the fridge for up to one month.

To Assemble:

Toast the pita breads on a griddle pan. Add the rocket and mint leaves, top with the pulled lamb, mayo and pickled onions. Garnish with micro leaves.
