Lamb Burger Recipe

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.

Ingredients

  • 1 Pound ground lamb
  • ½ small yellow onion, diced very small
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1 Teaspoon ground cumin
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • Olive oil, for grilling
  • 4 hamburger buns, toasted
  • Lettuce leaves, for serving
  • Sliced tomato, for serving
  • Sliced red onion, for serving

Directions

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.
