Sometimes you just need a burger! Considering the fact that Americans consume nearly 50 billion burgers a year, I am assuming most people need more than one! Although beef burgers are great, it’s nice every once in awhile to switch meats up a bit. This lamb burger provides the perfect switch.
Prep time: 7-10 minutes
Cook time: 7-10 minutes
Total time: 20 minutes
1lb of ground lamb
1/2 cup of mint, chopped finely
1/4 cup of flat leaf parsley chopped finely
Sea Salt & Black pepper to taste
Ingredients for Yogurt Cucumber Sauce
1/2 cup of yogurt
1 large clove of garlic grated
1/4 cup of organic Persian cucumber cubed
3 tablespoons of lemon juice
1 Tablespoon of finely minced shallot
1 tablespoon of mint finely chopped
Sea salt to taste
Directions: add all the ingredients for the yogurt sauce to a medium sized bowl, mix well and set aside.
In a large bowl add the ingredients for the burger, mix with your hands to incorporate all of the ingredients, and then form patties.
Heat a cast iron skillet, then add the burgers. Cook each burger without turning them, for 4-6 minutes on each side.
Or skip the bun and use lettuce as a low carb option.
