Stud lamb with thinly sliced garlic, the more studding the better. Season lamb with salt, pepper and 3 sprigs of thyme.
In a heavy pan add olive oil and heat to medium. Place lamb in fat side down for 20-25 minutes. Turn over and brown for 10 more minutes. Add vegetables, 2 sprigs of thyme, 8 garlic cloves, rosemary and wine. Turn heat up to high and cook for 5 minutes. Add veal stock and bring to a simmer. Cover with lid and place in a 350 degree oven for 2 hours.
Take the pan out of the oven remove cover and roast at 400 degrees for 20 more minutes. Take the lamb out of the pan and place on a cutting board with a well. Let rest. Skim any fat off of the top of the stock and place back on the stove over a medium high heat. Reduce stock by half for 15-20 minutes.
Carve the lamb and serve with the vegetables, sauce and ciabatta.
