2. Add the lemon juice from all three lemons, Lawry’s season salt, garlic cloves, cayenne pepper and coriander. Mix well and let it marinade for at least 30 minutes. If there is no juice at the bottom of the bowl, add more fresh lemon juice.
3. Place on skewers and pour remaining juice on top of the lamb prior to placing on the bbq.
4. Preheat bbq to medium heat. Add the lamb and cook for 20 minutes or until done. Be careful not to overcook, you don’t want chewy lamb.

Greek Lamb Burgers with Homemade Tzatziki Sauce

image

It felt like summer this past weekend in SoCal.  It was in the mid-80s and with the daylight savings time upon us and a brand new barbeque in the patio, we decided to christen it with lamb burgers.  Grab your feta, tomatoes and mushrooms and let’s start cooking!

 Ingredients:
– 3 lbs ground lamb (T.W.O. prefers fresh New Zealand ground lamb from WholeFoods)
– ½ cup feta
– ½ cup mushrooms, diced
– 1/3 cup red onions, diced
– 1 teaspoon garlic powder
– Krazy Salt
– Fresh group pepper
– Fresh hamburger buns
– Lettuce
– Tomatoes, sliced

Tzatziki Sauce Ingredients:
-1/4 cup non-fat Greek yogurt
– 4 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped
– 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

 In a bowl, mix the ground lamb with feta, mushrooms, red onions, garlic powder, Krazy salt and fresh ground pepper.  Mix well.  Form the mixture into 3-4 patties.

Using a bowl Mix the Greek yogurt with the dill in a small bowl to make your tzatziki sauce.  Place in the refrigerator while the burgers are cooking.

image

Place the lamb patties on a heated barbeque grill and cook for 15 minutes or until done.  Remove from heat.  If you like your buns toasted, now is a good time to do it.  Dress your hamburger how you like it – T.W.O. used their homemade tzatziki sauce, lettuce and tomatoes.  That is all you need for this Greek-influenced Lamb Burger.
