Lamb is more expensive than other types of ground meat but take one bite of these juicy burgers and you’ll see why. We don’t add much to the ground meat — just some onion, garlic, and spices — so that the flavor of the lamb can shine. Skip the cheese on these burgers and opt for a flavorful yogurt-based sauce instead.
Combine the ground lamb with the onion, garlic, cardamom, and cumin. Gently form the meat into 4 burger patties and then season each with salt and pepper.
Heat your grill to medium-high heat and lightly brush the lamb patties with olive oil to prevent sticking. Grill the burgers until cooked to the desired doneness, about 4-6 minutes per side.
Serve the lamb burgers on the toasted buns with lettuce, tomato, and red onion slices, to taste.
