Equipment

  • ridged grill pan or cast iron frying pan
  • Pyrex bowl
  • spatula

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground lamb
  • 1/4 small onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup panko (Japanese bread crumbs)
  • 1 egg
  • 3 Tablespoons chopped fresh mint
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh coriander
  • 4 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • in a medium bowl combine the lamb, onion, panko, egg, fresh mint, fresh coriander, garlic, cumin, ground coriander and salt. With a spoon or very clean hands, combine the mixture thoroughly and divide into three even patties.
  • Spray the patties lightly with oil on both sides. Preheat a Le Creuset ridged grill pan or cast iron frying pan over high heat. Sear the lamb burgers one minute on each side. Then reduce the heat to moderately high and cook the lamb burgers for about five minutes on each side for medium doneness. (Alternatively cook the burgers on a grill, searing them for about a minute on each side and then moving them to moderately high heat on the grill and cook for about five minutes on each side as well.)
  • Serve the lamb burgers with traditional buns, brioche, pita bread or on a lightly dressed salad of seasonal greens.
