November 5th, 2009 § 0 comments § permalink


1 lb lamb cubed and pre salted and refrigerated
1 T chopped fresh rosemary
¼ c chopped fine red onion
¼ c chopped fine red pepper
1 T olive oil
feta, cucumbers, roasted red peppers, and rocolla for serving.


Mix all ingredients together and form patties. Place on wax paper and put in freezer for approximately 10 minutes on each side until hard but not totally frozen. Preheat grill and make sure that it is well oiled and clean. Make sure heat is steady and high while cooking burgers. Do not flip burgers multiple times. The key is to flip once or twice but no more. This also ensures that the burgers stay well formed. Generally speaking, cook two minutes per side for rare, three minutes per side for medium, and four minutes per side for well done. Serve with feta cheese, cucumbers, roasted peppers and rocolla.
