Method

Peel the onions and chop roughly. Melt the lard and the butter in a large flame-proof casserole and put in the lamb and onions. Cook over medium heat, covered, for 30 minutes, turning the joint over from time to time. Then add the tomatoes, chopped, salt and pepper to taste and the white wine. Bring to the boil, turn down the heat and simmer gently for a further 30 minutes or until the lamb is cooked to your taste.

Remove the lamb to a hot carving plate.

Pour the tomato and onion sauce into a blender and blend until smooth. Reheat, adding more salt if you like, and serve with the carved meat.
