Mmm…spicy lamb burgers

I dug a pound of lamb burger from the freezer this morning.  I bought a couple pounds of it a while back, made gyros out of the first pound.  Saw this recipe today while browsing around and remembered that I had some.  We had everything the recipe called for, feta included, but I wanted goat cheese so Mrs J picked some up while on a run to town this afternoon.  Oh, and the cilantro.  Yuck.  She didn’t get any of that, we both suffer from the “tastes like soap” syndrome.

I mixed this stuff up in a bowl and let is sit in the fridge for a couple of hours:

  • 1 pound ground lamb
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint leaves
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon sherry
  • 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

I broiled three patties from that mix in the toaster oven and went from there.  Some tomato slices and the same from a smallish red onion and here you go:

  1. I adore lamb burgers and these look amazing. I always serve them with pita instead of real bread. It just goes so well and is much lighter. Yum. Lamb is by far my favourite meat.


  2. Frugal- Thanks for stopping by. I don’t eat lamb very often, had to ask at several places to find the few pounds I did manage. Occasionally the closest market will have a leg of lamb. I will say that what I have eaten I’ve enjoyed!
