Lamb Chops with Porcini Mushrooms

Let the butter soak into it all

This requires 1/2 lb of fresh porcini — no substitutions.

Seared Lamb Chops with Porcini Mushrooms

  • 4 lamb chops 1 1/2″ thick
  • 1/2 lb porcini mushrooms sliced into large bites
  • 4 garlic scapes chopped fine
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 2 oz sherry
  • 1 tbsp grated nutmeg
  • Salt/pepper

Season meat with salt, pepper and nutmeg. In a large cast iron saute pan melt butter over medium heat. Add mushrooms and cook until browned on both sides. Stirring frequently. Add lamb chops and cook halfway, about 3 minutes. Flip chops, add scapes and sherry and finish cooking. Serve with orzo and a good syrah.

    A tablespoon of nutmeg? Seems strong to me in my mind not sure about my taste buds in reality.
    Good to see you on the blog.
