A few years ago if my parents were to suggest lamb for dinner I would turn up my nose. I always felt as though the flavour of lamb meat was much too powerful and overwhelming.
However, within the past month, Eddie and I have enjoyed lamb a few times and now it is one of my most favourite things to eat. I no longer find it overwhelming or too powerful. Rather, it is full of flavour and absolutely to die for.
We’ve been purchasing our lamb meat at Dad’s Organic Market. We’ve been buying the organic ground lamb and enjoying it in many different ways, but these lamb burgers that we created a couple of weeks ago seem to be our overall favourite!
Lamb is rich in essential fatty acids as well as antioxidants, selenium and zinc. I absolutely love adding lamb into my weekly rotation and I hope you love this recipe for lamb burgers as much as Eddie and I do!
Sundried Tomato Lamb Burgers
1 lb. ground lamb (preferably organic, grass fed)
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 large red onion, minced
4 sundried tomatoes, diced
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix until all ingredients are distributed evenly throughout the meat. Divide into 2 patties. Grill and serve when done.
We served our burgers with a side of plantain fries, but also decided to top them with a marinated tomato and cucumber salad. We tossed cucumber, tomatoes, and red onions in a mixture of lime infused extra virgin olive oil and rice wine vinegar and a little sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. It was the perfect addition.
