Lamb / Beef / Pork Smoke - Page 2

post #21 of 31

Raspberry coulis

Hubby loves lamb, he'll do a rack on the grill and I swear it's the most tender meat I've every put in my mouth, I don't like the gamey taste though. He made it for a friendly back yard comp last year and served it with a raspberry coulis (he hates the mint). Sounds odd but it's a great accoutrament. Recipe below...I haven't tried lamb in the smoker yet but I have a leg o'lamb in the freezer that very well may wind up in the the way, this sauce would be awesome over ice cream, cake, etc...maybe even a glaze on chicken!

Raspberry Coulis:
1 1/2 pounds frozen raspberries
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice

Place all the ingredients in a 1-quart saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring the
raspberries to a boil, and reduce the heat to a heavy simmer. Continue to cook the
raspberries until the sugar dissolves, the raspberries burst, and the liquid
reduces by one half, about 15 minutes. Strain the raspberries through a fine mesh
strainer and discard solids. Reserve coulis in a non-reactive container until
ready to use. Coulis will keep, refrigerated, for up to 2 weeks.

Yield: 1 1/2 cups

I'm with you Rodger, I don't care for lamb at all. I have given it the old college try at least 10 times, but just can't get the taste for it...the raspberry coulis on the other hand....tongue.gif

Never did lamb - never cared much for it but smoke might be the ticket! Waiting to hear/see the results.

Did you guys ever try marinating lamb overnight and add a small handful (1 Tbs.) crushed juniper berries? I use that all the time with potentially gamier cuts of venison to cut that strong taste, would probably work with lamb too!icon_rolleyes.gif

Although I do remember my gramma (who raised me) fixin it one time when I was a kid…it was god awful, stunk up the house, heck I didn’t try it again til I was in my 40’s (my favorite meat now!)
However I still don’t care for mutton!

It actually looks really good. Do you normally like lamb? Maybe it's just an acquired taste and even smoke can help it if you don't like lamb?

well I think I'll put my two cents in...tried it...didn't really care for it...not when I can cook something I know I'll like...buddy brown...
