Received so many great recipes from this forum, thought I'd try to give one back. Lamb burgers (see below) served with feta creamed spinach and Tzaziki dip were a big success last night. Recipe from 15 Minute Low-Carb Recipes by Diane Carpender.[p]Orange Lamb Burgers
1/2 red onion
4 cloves garlic
2 lb ground lamb
2 tsp ground cumin
3 tb soy sauce
1 tb orange zest
4 tb orange juice
4 tb cilantro
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground pepper[p]Pulse red onion, garlic, cilantro in food processor until finely minced, not quite turned into a paste. Put in large bowl with remaining ingredients and combine thoroughly. Form into 6 burgers.[p]Hope you enjoy it,

    Thanks for posting that. Looks like some pretty major-flavorful pieces of meat! Lots of major taste-bud carnival stuff goin' on. Sound delicious. Pleasingly potent?? What do you serve it with?? [p]Also, do you grind the lamb yourself? Which cut is best for this dish, and the approximate percentage of fat needed? [p]Really sounds good.

    I served the burgers in a pita stuffed with chopped lettuce, tomato, feta cheese and tzaziki sauce. Sides were a greek salad, feta cheese creamed spinach and more tzaziki sauce. [p]A local market offers ground lamb on a regular basis so I don't know the cut of meat. To me, the fat content looked and cooked like about 25-30% fat.

  • Nature Boy,
    We think alike sometimes! I just sent a message to Mr. Rum ask-a-butcher about grinding your own lamb in a food processor, like AB does with beef. We'll see what he says....

    Man oh man! Sounds delicious. Hard to go wrong with lamb, and your setup made it into a jewel.[p]Ken
