Burger

  • 1 Lb Ground Lamb
  • 1 Lbs Ground Chuck Beef 80% lean / 20% fat
  • 2 Garlic Cloves minced
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Tsp Dill
  • 1/2 Tsp Oregano
  • 4 Tsp Salt
  • 1 Tsp Pepper

Tzatziki Sauce

  • 3/4 Cup Greek Yogurt 6oz
  • 1/2 Cup Cucumber peeled, seeded, diced
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 2 Tsp Lemon Juice
  • 2 Garlic Cloves minced

Toppings

  • 4 Hamburger Buns

Instructions

  1. Mix Tzatziki ingredients in a medium sized bowl and set in the fridge to keep cool.

  2. Dice tomato and cut thin slices of the red onion and set aside.

  3. Get your grill/pan/etc hot.

  4. Mix meat ingredients together. Divide meat into 8oz (1/2 lb) portions (or you can use smaller 6oz portions). Flatten into patties that are about 1/2 inch larger than the buns.

  5. Put a thumbprint in the middle of the patty so it doesn’t puff up when cooking.

  7. Flip burgers. Put the buns face down on the grill. Cook until you reach the correct temp (140F for medium), usually about 2 to 4 minutes.
