My burgers are always a big hit and I keep my dad’s secret guarded very closely. I’m not sure if I will post that recipe at some point, but for now, it’s a secret. Sorry!
For now, you’ll have to try these delicious lamb burgers. I like lamb because it’s rather lean and flavorful with a gamey quality that I really like. It tends to get pretty dry if you overcook, so keep them closer to rare and they’ll stay nice and moist. Perfect for your next gathering, whether it’s basketball, oscars, or bbq!
1 pound ground lamb
2 garlic cloves, minced
4 tablespoons chopped mint
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
1 teaspoon tomato paste
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 shallot, minced
1 teaspoon Worchestershire sauce
4 burger buns or 8 slider buns
1/4 cup plain yogurt
Combine the lamb, garlic, shallot, salt, Worchestershire, tomato paste, and half the mint together in a bowl. Mix together with a fork, being careful not to over mix the meat. Form into burgers or sliders and grill on a grill pan or grill for 3 minutes on the first side and then an additional minute on the second side. You want to start seeing the juices coming to the surface and the bottom browning before you flip. You know they’re done to medium rare when they are still somewhat soft to the touch like pushing where your thumb meets your palm.
Combine the rest of the mint and the parsley with the yogurt. Spoon onto the burger and enjoy!
