These burgers turned out really good. My husband makes his own version that is very similar to this recipe (using a little of this and that)...and I wanted to replicate it. Suprisingly enough, this came very close to his. I used dry herbs and threw in some cilantro and green onions. I used a bit more salt than what the recipe called for and used ground pork rather than lamb. I've never cooked with lamb before...simply because I never see it at our grocery store. I was given several compliments and plan on making this again. Thanks for sharing Alan.
I made these just as written. They were not to my liking. Way too much going on w/ these burgers. You can't even taste the lamb, might as well be using ground turkey or pork ;) TOO many spices in this that are overpowering, and they are not spicy at all. No one liked them. Next time I want a lamb burger, I'll just make a lamb burger: nothing needed but S & P.
Mighty tasty burgers! I substituted dark corn syrup for the molasses, and white wine for the sherry. Very good - and the burgers held together well on the grill. Just let them cook well before turning over.
Fabulous flavor. I wouldn't change a thing to the recipe for the burgers. Even when cooked all the way through the meat was so tender and juicy. The only thing I did differently was I made some homemade tzaziki yogurt sauce and added a spoonful or two of that to the burger and feta in the grilled pita pocket. This will be a new favorite for the grill! Thanks Alan.
EXCELLENT... I took this recipe and made small meatballs and baked in the oven... then served them with toothpicks and tzatziki as an appetizer... everyone wanted the recipe! YUM
Yummy, Yummy, Yummy!! I raise sheep, so always have lots of lamb on hand and I am always looking for good lamb recipes. This one is great. I didn't have any fresh mint, so used 3 mint tea bags (make sure it has no additives) also, I had no sherry or wine so used angastura bitters. This lamb burger was so tasty and did hold together well. My family gave it 5 stars, even the kids. Will serve this often this coming summer. Thanks for the great recipe.
These were fantastic - even with the variety of substitutions I had to make (7 mos pregnant and not keen on the idea of a special trip to the store). I substituted fresh thyme and rosemary for the cilantro and mint, honey for the molasses, a good squeeze of lemon juice as I was going for a Greek flavour. The mix was a bit dry so I added a beaten egg and a handful of breadcrumbs and they were delicious! Can't wait to try the original recipe. Thanks Alan.
Holy Cow! This Lamb kicks-Ass!
