Preheat the oven to gas 3, 160°C, fan 140°C. Heat the olive oil in a large flameproof casserole dish. Fry the lamb on all sides to seal the meat then add in the rosemary, garlic, seasoning, chopped tomatoes, wine and orange wedges. Bring to the boil, stirring, then remove from the heat.

Scatter the potato cubes and diced onion around the lamb. Cover the dish tightly and cook in the oven for 2 hours.

Uncover the casserole dish, raise the oven temperature to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C and cook for a further 30 minutes until potatoes take on a golden colour.
