Mascarpone Morel Pan Sauce

This Mascarpone Morel Pan Sauce is a luxurious, creamy complement to our Crown Roast of Lamb. Morel mushrooms are a unique spring delicacy, but you should be able to find them dried at your local grocery store. Better yet, buy them fresh at your farmer's market — or forage your own when the lilacs bloom!

Test Kitchen Tip

Whisk in warmed mushroom broth a few tablespoons at a time if the mascarpone cream cheese thickens the sauce too much.


Melt butter with oil in a sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add shallots and garlic; sauté until softened, 3 minutes. Add mushrooms; sauté 2 minutes.

Meanwhile, whisk together reserved Crown Roast of Lamb drippings, Dijon, and vinegar; add to mushroom mixture along with wine and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium; simmer until liquid is almost evaporated, 23 minutes.

Whisk flour into mushroom mixture; cook 12 minutes. Slowly add broth; return to a simmer until thickened, 810 minutes.

Off heat, whisk in mascarpone. Season sauce with salt and pepper; serve with lamb.
