Lamb Burgers with Oregano, Mint, and Cucumber-Garlic Sauce

Lamb Burgers with Oregano, Mint, and Cucumber-Garlic Sauce
From Weber Recipe of the Week

4 ounces English cucumber
2 teaspoons minced garlic
8 tablespoons finely chopped fresh mint, divided
½ cup plain yogurt
½ teaspoon kosher salt
Few drops Tabasco® sauce

2 pounds ground lamb
2/3 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/3 cup minced yellow onion
3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh oregano
1-½ teaspoons kosher salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

6 onion or Kaiser rolls
6 slices ripe tomato

To make the sauce: Peel and grate the cucumber. Drain in a colander while preparing the rest of the ingredients. In a small bowl, stir together the garlic, 2 tablespoons of the mint, the drained cucumber, and the remaining sauce ingredients. Cover with plastic and refrigerate until ready to serve.

To prepare the burgers: In a large bowl, gently mix the burger ingredients, including the remaining 6 tablespoons of mint. Shape the meat into six patties of equal size, about ¾-inch thick. Refrigerate for at least 15 minutes before grilling. Grill the burgers over Direct High heat until cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes, turning once. During the last 30 seconds, toast the buns, cut side down, over Direct High heat.

Serve the lamb burgers on the toasted buns with the tomato slices and cucumber sauce.

Makes 6 servings
