I threw this together one Saturday evening and I thought it came out a winner. It has a lovely tang from the hot sauce and ginger/soy. I used a prepared Ginger sauce(1 tbsp) however in the recipe I changed it to 1 Tbsp Teriaki sauce and 1/2 tsp grated ginger because it may not be available everywhere..Just repeat as many times as you wish. Make it as hot as you want or tame it a bit. Great served with oven Fries
- 6 ounces ground lamb, shaped into two patties
- 1 tablespoon teriyaki sauce
- 1⁄2 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
- 1⁄2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1⁄2 teaspoon hot sauce, to taste
- 4 tablespoons aged cheddar cheese (or your favorite)
- 1 slice sweet onion
- 1 slice tomato
- lettuce leaf
- 6 sliced mushrooms
- 1 whole wheat buns or 1 hamburger bun
- cooking spray, on the fry pan
- Place the teriaki sauce, ginger, worcestershire sauce,hotsauce cheese, salt& pepper on one of the patties, cover with the other pattie and seal carefully.
- Slide the sealed pattie into a heated pan (hot temp).
- Brown for 3 minutes, flip the burger, turn heat down to low medium, cover pan and cook 3 minutes,flip again, add Mushrooms, return cover and continue cooking until done over low heat.
- (apprx 12 minutes total).
- Meanwhile toast your bun, butter it if you wish I usually don't.
- When your pattie is cooked and the bun toasted place pattie on the bun along with all the condiments.
Lamb is more usually associated with Mediterranean seasonings than with Asian tastes like teriyaki, which lends this a nice novel flavor that really works. After trying it one time with the cheese filling, I omitted the cheese and just mixed the other seasonings with the ground lamb; it was still great! Bergy, you are truly the queen of burgers.
