Minted Lamb Burgers

A classic BBQ experience is nothing without burgers. There are so many things you can do with burgers, add sauces, bacon, egg, whatever your heart desires, which makes it a fun BBQ staple.  

Instead of the notorious beef burger, we’ve opted for this extremely tasty, minted lamb burger. Paired with a creamy garlic mayonnaise and a toasted bun: this burger is a great change. Easy to prep and easy to cook, this is a quick winner that will easily impress. 

Cooking Method

  1. Preheat your grill until you reach a medium to high heat. 
    Grab a large bowl and add in your lamb mince, garlic (save a little for later), onion, mint, coriander and pinch of salt and pepper. 
    Get stuck in with your hands and mix it all together so that all the flavours are well combined.  
  2. Create your patties by taking a good handful of the mince and rolling it into a ball to combine and then lightly pressing down to create a flat burger shape. 
    Rub a little bit of vegetable oil on each side of your burgers and leave to the side.  
  3. Make your burger sauce by mixing your remaining garlic with mayonnaise and fully combining. 
    (For the best burger experience, you can lightly toast your burger bun on the grill to get a nice golden colour)
    Before grilling, build your burger in advance by adding a good dollop of your garlic mayonnaise each side of the burger bun and add your favourite burger toppings, ready for the cooked lamb to be added straight from the grill.  
  4. Add your burgers to the barbeque and grill each side for 4-5 minutes if you want to achieve a medium rare finish. 
    Use a meat thermometer to check each burger is cooked. Insert it into the centre, if the temperature is 70 Degrees °C / 160 Degrees °F then your burgers are ready to be taken off the heat.  
  5. Add your grilled lamb burgers to your buns and serve.

Frequently Asked Questions

Depending on which method of cooking you are using, timings will vary:
Oven grill: 4-5 minutes each side
Pan Fry: 5-6 minutes each side 

Cooking to these timings will result in lamb cooked to medium.  

Lamb can be eaten rare, as long as the outside has been seared to reduce the risk of consuming pathogenic bacteria which can make you ill if ingested. Searing lamb is quick and easy and can be done over a high heat to kill the bacteria.

Rare lamb has a stronger gamier flavour compared to beef. If you want a gamier tasting piece of lamb, you can cook it rare or if you still want a tender piece of meat with less gamier flavour then medium rare is the perfect temperature.
