Directions

  1. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in the minced shallot, morel and oyster mushrooms; cook until the mushrooms have lightly browned, and are soft. Pour in the white wine, and cook until evaporated. Scrape the mushrooms onto a plate, and set aside to cool. Meanwhile, stir together the cumin, paprika, oregano, brown sugar, garlic powder, parsley flakes, pepper, and salt in a bowl. Coat the lamb rack with the spice mixture and set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and lightly grease.
  3. Spread the mushroom mixture evenly over one side of the puff pastry. Cut a slit 2 inches away from one edge of the puff pastry for each bone on the lamb rack. Carefully poke the bones through the slits and wrap the pastry around the lamb rack, pressing the edges of the pastry together to seal. Place onto the prepared baking sheet and brush with the beaten egg yolk. Refrigerate the lamb for 10 minutes before baking.
  4. Bake the lamb in the preheated oven until the pastry has puffed and turned golden-brown, about 15 minutes. Remove, and let rest for 5 minutes before slicing. While the lamb is resting, bring the demi-glace to a simmer in a small saucepan. Whisk in the butter until dissolved. Drizzle the demi-glace over the sliced lamb chops, and sprinkle with chopped fresh parsley to garnish.

I was unable to find fresh morels so I doubled the oyster mushrooms. Prepped it early and refrigerated it for about 2 hours. Took it out of the fridge about 30 minutes before baking. Found that I had to raise the oven temp to 400 and cook had to cook another 10 to 15 minutes to cook pastry and the meat came out medium rare. My guests loved it and went back for seconds.

The pastry dough needs a 425F degree oven to cook properly.

This recipe was a disaster! Puff pastry will not brown at 350 so I raised the temp to 400 and gave it the 15 minutes. The pastry was nicely browned but the lamb was raw. Normally a rack of lamb will cook in 15 minutes in a hot oven but the pastry acted like insulation. Very disappointed.
