Favorite Lamb Burgers|
Others may enjoy hamburgers, turkey burgers, or veggie burgers, but our favorite burgers are definitely made of lamb. This savory mixture is great served plain, with rolls, pita bread, or on slices of sourdough bread. We also like it with a simple dressing of mayonnaise, Aioli, or plain and some sliced cucumbers, tomatoes, and lettuce.
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons dry sherry (optional)
3 minced garlic cloves
1 teaspoon crumbled dried thyme
1 teaspoon crumbled dried rosemary
Freshly ground black pepper
2 pounds ground lamb
Mix together all of the ingredients except for the lamb in a medium bowl. Add the lamb and work the vinegar into the meat, handling it as little as possible. Form the lamb into 8 patties. Grill immediately, or tightly wrap and refrigerate for up to 12 hours before serving. Grill over medium high heat for 10-12 minutes, or until cooked through, turning once partway through.
Makes 8 servings.
