1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/Gas 4. Place the lamb leg in a large ovenproof dish - ideally one with a lid rather than a roasting tin.
2. Put the onion, garlic, shallots, beef tomatoes and canned tomatoes in a large saucepan. Stir in the tomato juice, olive oil, red wine, vinegar and herbs. Season with plenty of salt and pepper and bring to the boil, stirring occasionally.
3. Pour the hot sauce over the lamb and cover the dish tightly. You can use foil if you don't have a lid. Cook in the centre of the oven for about 3½ hours or until the meat falls away from the bone and the sauce is thick. Check every hour, spooning the sauce over the lamb each time. Serve hot in chunky pieces with plenty of the sauce.
