Lamb and beetroot burgers

Ingredients

Method

  • 400g lamb mince 
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup Pams panko breadcrumbs 
  • Zest of 2 lemons
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • Pinch of chilli flakes
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • ¾ cup Greek yoghurt  
  • ½ telegraph cucumber 
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh mint leaves 
  • 4 burger buns, toasted
  • 1 cup rocket, spinach or lettuce
  • ½ cup tinned sliced beetroot, diced 
  • 50g feta cheese
  • Fresh mint leaves, for garnish

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the lamb mince, 2 cloves minced garlic, egg, panko breadcrumbs, zest of one lemon, cumin and chilli flakes. Mix well until fully combined, then season with salt and pepper. 
  2. Shape the mince mixture into 4 even sized patties, then place on a board or plate and set aside.
  3. Grate the cucumber, and place into the centre of a clean tea towel or cheese cloth. Ring tightly over a bowl or sink to remove any excess liquid. 
  4. Make the tzatziki by combining the yoghurt, remaining minced garlic clove, zest of 1 lemon, cucumber, chopped mint and seasoning to taste. 
  5. Bring a large non-stick frying pan to a medium to high heat. Drizzle lightly with olive oil, then cook the burger patties for 4-5 minutes each side depending on thickness, or until the patties are golden in colour and slightly pink in the center. 
  6. To assemble the burgers, spread tzatziki over the base of the burger buns. Top with a burger patty, followed by rocket. Sprinkle with diced beetroot, then crumble feta over the top. Tear the remaining mint leaves and sprinkle over the top. 
  7. Spread tzatziki over the burger bun lid, then place on top of the burger. Serve and enjoy immediately.
