Spalla di angello con funghi



.Suitable for freezing
. Preparation




minutes cooking time
.140 C°, 275 F°, Gas Mark 1


  • 200g hen of the woods, cleaned weight
  • 15g dried ceps
  • 4 small shoulders of lamb, boned (get your butcher to do this for you)
  • 1 tbsp each of chopped parsley and rosemary
  • 1 tbsp chopped garlic
  • salt and pepper
  • plain flour, for dusting
  • 8 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 celery stalk, trimmed and finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp black peppercorns
  • 500ml chicken or vegetable stock 
  • 300ml white wine
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce


  1. Clean the fresh mushrooms thoroughly, and separate into small lobes.
  2. Soak the dried ceps in warm water for 20 minutes, then drain, reserving the water, and ï¬nely chop.
  3. Remove most of the fat from the lamb shoulders, trimming them well. You want each piece to weigh about 200g. Lay the pieces, boned side up, on the work surface.
  4. Mix the chopped herbs and garlic together, season with salt and pepper, and divide between the pieces of lamb, spreading the mixture evenly on the meat.
  5. Fold each piece of lamb over, then roll and tie into an even shape with kitchen string.
  6. Dust with flour and fry in a casserole dish in the olive oil until brown on all sides, turning every few minutes.
  7. Add the onion, celery and peppercorns to the casserole dish and sauté briefly, then add the stock, wine and Worcestershire sauce.
  8. Cover and cook on top of the stove over a gentle heat for 1 hour. Turn occasionally.
  9. After an hour, much of the liquid will have evaporated, but there should still be enough to serve as a sauce.
  10. Add the mushrooms, fresh and dried, plus a little of the soaking water if necessary, and cook for a further 30 minutes. Check the seasoning before serving.
