    Directions

    1. Preheat the oven to 300°F.
    2. Heat the oil in a large skillet on high heat. Brown the lamb for 8-10 mins, turning on all sides. Transfer the lamb to a roasting pan.
    3. Combine the kecap manis, vinegar, sugar, lemongrass, ginger, garlic, chili pepper, star anise and sesame oil in a medium bowl. Pour over the lamb, brushing to coat. Cover with foil.
    4. Bake for 3-3 1/2 hours turning halfway, until very tender. Using 2 forks, shred the lamb from the bone. Spoon the sauce over the shredded meat. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds.
    5. Serve the lamb with pancakes, cucumber and herbs. Allow guests to assemble their own pancakes. Serve with additional chili pepper slices and lime wedges.
