Wednesday, April 18, 2007I read this comic from Tangs and I feel it's very funny. This inspired the recipe for this post. Click on the image to enlarge.
Do you have the burger? Do you have the lamb burger? Do you have the ultimate lamb burger? Yes! Behold - The ultimate lamb burger!
Makes 4 burgers
1 small thumb ginger, grated
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 shallot, finely chopped
1 mild red chili, deseeded and chopped
2-3 pinch of cumin
4 green cardamon pods, seeds crushed and husks discarded
one large pinch ground coriander
one large pinch allspice powder
small handful of freshly chopped coriander
Salt and pepper for seasoning
2 tablespoons low fat yogurt
400g coarsely grinded lamb mince
1 small egg white, whisked
olive oil for coating
1) Combine everything except mince lamb, egg white and oil. Then mix in the lamb mince, followed by the egg white. Mix everything lightly, then form 4 patties. Try not to compress the meat as it will make the burgers tough.
2) Refrigerate for 30 minutes (not a lot longer as the acidity of the yogurt will break down the meat and ruin the texture if left too long)
3) Heat up frying pan. While waiting for the pan to be hot, lightly oil the burgers and season with some salt. Cook first side for 3 minutes undisturbed, then turn and cook for 5-6 minutes or until just pink in the middle.
4) Let the burgers rest for a few minutes before serving them with your burger bread with lettuce tomatoes and onion. Hmmm....
