Smoked Lamb Chop with PORCINI Mushrooms Crusted, Saffron Polenta and Cherry Tomato Sauce

Smoked Lamb Rack or lamb chop with porcini mushrooms crusted is an easy recipe with a fancy restaurant looking dish. The porcini mushooms crusted within the smoked lamb rack or lamb chop made an earthy and pungent mushrooms fragrance along with the smoky flavour. I guess no one could  regret this, even for a non-lamb person.  As a lamb person, i love to cook and also eat lamb all the way. Roasted, grilled, stewed and you name it. Luckily,when i checked to my fellow friends blog, she made a smoked lamb leg with rosemarry rubs, wow it’s sound great since any gamey meat is suits with smoking technique. It’s a kinda shame on me, since i’m a huge fans of lamb and never  even thought to smoked it before. Ever since i’m made my homemade smoked salmon, homemade smoked beef and homemade tea smoked goose, i’ve always craving for homemade smoking without smokers house, just using a simple old crockpot.

Porcini Mushrooms Crusted Smoked Lamb Chop

Homemade Smoking Lamb Rack or Lamb Chop is actually so easy. Just like my homemade tea smoked salmon, tea smoked lamb rack needed prior lamb rack surface drying out  to make a pellicle first. The Pellicle layer is needed to mantain and keep the juice inside the meat and not dripping out during the smoking process. After slighly curing the lamb chop with powdered porcini and cajun seasoning, the lamb chop patted dry with clean paper towel and laid in front of fan or air conditioner for about 20 minutes to dried out the surface. You can made this happed by put the cured lamb uncovered in the fridge overnight prior to smoking. Usually i use rice as a homemade smoked agent, but since my grandmas is concern on “wasting” for smoking agent, she ask me to use my leftover dried corn from feeding the goose for my Confit d’Oie/Goose Confit. The dried  corn works well as smoking agent. Beside changing the smoking agent, today i try to smoked the lamb leg in a very low flame to infused the smoke flavour to the lamb chop even better. After that, i dragged the smoked lamb chop in a powdered porcini mushroom then pan fried it to make a crusted porcini mushroom layer.
