Preheat the oven to 325°F.
Heat a large ovenproof pot over medium heat.
Add the lamb and brown ion all sides, 6 to 8 minutes total.
Transfer the lamb to a platter.
Add the shallots and garlic to the pot and cook, stirring, until they are soft and golden brown, about 4 minutes.
Add a pinch of salt to the pot, then pour in the stock and bring the mixture to a boil. Return the lamb to the pot, cover, and transfer to the oven.
Roast the lamb for about 5 hours, until the lamb is literally falling apart. Take the lamb out of the oven and let it cool in the pot.
About an hour before you want to eat, take the lamb out of the pot.
Cut and remove the twine.
Remove as much of the fat as possible and shred the meat into uniform pieces with two forks.
Put the arugula on a platter and put the shredded lamb on top.
Sprinkle with sea salt and the chopped mint.
Cut the pomegranate in half. Hold one pomegranate half above the plate and hit the back of it with a wooden spoon to knock out the seeds.
Take the other half of the pomegranate and squeeze its juice over the salad. If you want a juicier, stronger, fruitier salad, add a couple of tablespoons of pomegranate molasses. Scatter the toasted pine nuts and feta cheese over the top, if desired.
Serve the salad while the lamb is still warm (cold lamb fat congeals unappetizingly), with warmed pita on the side.
