Kick off grill season by grilling amazing Lamb Burgers with Tabbouleh and Grilled Peppers.
There are few things in life more satisfying than a truly fantastic burger.
In fact, Lt. Dan and I often rate new restaurants on the state of their burgers. If they serve a superb classic burger, or a unique spin on a burger, we feel the restaurant has potential no matter what else comes out of the kitchen.
Now that grill season is upon us, there’s no reason to go out for burgers. We can make all sorts of marvelous burger variations at home!
And did you know lamb provides nearly five times the amount of the essential omega-3 fatty acids, as an equal serving of beef?
Not only is lamb a nutritious red meat option, it has a sumptuous meaty flavor that pairs well with all sorts of ethnic ingredients.
Like mediterranean ingredients, for instance.
Today we’re making Lamb Burgers with Tabbouleh and Grilled Peppers, topped with a spicy Jalapeno Mint Yogurt Sauce.
The combination of the cool spicy yogurt sauce, the chunky fresh tabbouleh, and the smoky-sweet peppers accentuate the juicy richness of the lamb burgers. The pop of flavor and textural bliss these Lamb Burgers with Tabbouleh and Grilled Peppers provide is outstanding.
Just remember… because lamb is so lean, it’s important to grill it carefully. I cooked these lamb burgers on an extremely consistent Weber Grill. Preheat the grill to medium for 15 minutes, so the grates are evenly heated. Then grill for only 3-4 minutes per side, to achieve a nice juicy medium to medium-rare pink center.
Don’t be afraid of pink lamb! As long as the interior temperature reads 160 degrees F, the lamb is safe to eat and ultra juicy.
Once the glistening lamb patties come off the grill, pile the buns high with yogurt sauce, sweet and smoky bell peppers….
A gorgeous dripping lamb patty…
And a heaping mound of fresh perky tabbouleh.
Then cover with the bun top and wrap both hands around that glorious lamb burger. Really good things are about to happen to your tastebuds.
In fact, I’ll bet these Lamb Burgers with Tabbouleh and Grilled Peppers will make it on your menu multiple times this grill season.
With mind-blowing flavor, mediterranean appeal, and healthy benefits, what have you got to lose?
