Summer BBQ Lamb Burger
500g ground lamb
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp paprika 200g plain Greek yogurt
30g fresh mint leaves, finely chopped
1 tbsp lemon juice 4 Burger buns
4 Iceberg Lettuce leaves
4 tomatoes sliced
1 Sliced red onions
Start by preheating your BBQ grill or using a stovetop grill pan over medium-high heat.
In a mixing bowl, combine the ground lamb, finely chopped onion, minced garlic, ground cumin, ground coriander, paprika, salt, and pepper. Mix everything thoroughly until all the flavours are well incorporated.
Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions and gently shape them into burger patties. Chef's top tip: Create a slight indentation in the center of each patty to ensure even cooking.
Place the lamb patties on the preheated BBQ grill or stovetop grill pan. Cook each side for about 4-5 minutes.
While the patties are sizzling away, in a separate bowl, combine the Greek yogurt, finely chopped mint leaves, lemon juice, and a pinch of salt. Stir well to create a smooth and tangy sauce that complements the rich flavors of the lamb.
Lightly toast the burger buns on the grill for a minute or until they develop a delightful golden hue.
Spread a generous amount of the mint yogurt sauce on the bottom half of each bun. Next your lettuce, then a layer of tomato, the lamb and finally the sliced onion. Finish assembling your masterpiece by placing the top half of the bun on the toppings.
