This impressive entrée hits aromatic, piquant, and creamy notes all at once. It's so easy that you might want to serve it for company - just double or triple the recipe as needed. Oyster mushrooms, with their faint taste of oysters, complement the bold flavor of mustard-coated lamb. Roasting the lamb over the mushrooms allows them to soak up the flavorful drippings. Serve with couscous to ensure that none of the sauce goes to waste.
