Mushrooms and lamb are a natural combination and they’re even better together with the addition of Asian flavors and the crunch of peanuts.

  • Cook: 15 mins
  • Yields: 12 Servings


12 large mushrooms

1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

⅓ lb ground American Lamb

½ tsp garlic salt

½ tsp ground pepper

¼ cup chopped red bell pepper

3 green onions, thinly sliced

2 tbsp prepared plum sauce (available in the Asian section of the store)

3 tbsp finely chopped peanuts


1Preheat the oven to 375ºF.

2Wipe off the mushrooms with a damp paper towel. Snap out the mushroom stems and chop them; set aside.

3In large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add lamb and mushroom stems. Add the garlic salt and pepper. Crumble the lamb and cook until browned.
