Kefi Lamb Burger

Take a trip to the Mediterranean with this Greek-inspired lamb burger. A combination of dried parsley, oregano, and dill lends pleasant herbal flavors to the lamb patties, and a well-dressed salad with feta tops the patty.

Directions

Preheat the grill over medium-high heat. Coat the grill with olive oil.

 

Grill the onion until there are grill marks on both sides, about 3-5 minutes per side. Remove from the heat. Combine the lamb, shallot, scallion, garlic confit, parsley flakes, oregano, dill, and coriander in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and mix well. Form a ½-inch-thick patty (do not overhandle the meat).

 

Brush the grill with more olive oil and grill to medium-rare, about 3 minutes per side. Meanwhile, combine the onion, arugula, olives, sun-dried tomato, feta, dill, mint, lemon juice, and olive oil in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and mix well to combine. Place the patty on the bun, top with the salad, and serve.
