Ingredients:  
1 4–5-pound boneless lamb shoulder
Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
6 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
2 mandarin oranges or tangerines, unpeeled, thinly sliced into rounds
1 cup black olives, pitted, coarsely chopped
2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
1 1/2 cups beef stock or low-sodium chicken broth
1 1/2 cups dry red wine
1 cup tomato purée

Directions:
Directions:
Holding knife parallel to work surface, cut lamb lengthwise, following seam where bone was removed and stopping about 1/2" before you get all the way through. Open lamb like a book and season all over with salt and pepper. Close, wrap tightly in plastic, and chill at least 8 hours.
Preheat oven to 400°F. Open lamb and arrange garlic on bottom half, leaving a 1" border. Top with orange slices and olives. Sprinkle with rosemary. Close lamb and tie at 1" intervals with kitchen twine.
Place lamb on a wire rack set inside a large rimmed baking sheet. Roast until nicely browned, 30–40 minutes. Remove lamb from oven.
Reduce oven temperature to 300°F. Carefully transfer lamb to a large heavy ovenproof pot and add stock, wine, and tomato purée. Cover and braise lamb, basting with braising liquid every 30 minutes, until golden brown and fork-tender, 2 1/2–3 hours. Season with salt and pepper, if needed.
Transfer lamb to a cutting board and let rest at least 30 minutes before slicing. Serve with braising liquid.

DO AHEAD: Lamb can be seasoned 1 day ahead; keep chilled. Lamb can be braised 2 days ahead; cover and chill.
