Fresh Lamb Burger with Harissa And Scallions
What you’ll need
450g lamb sirloin, ground
(see Skill 1)
½ tsp ground coriander
½ tsp freshly ground pepper
2 tsp salt
1 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tbsp sour cream
1 tbsp milk
1 tbsp harissa paste (find it in the international section of the supermarket)
4 slices Gruyere cheese
4 good quality rolls, toasted
⅓ cup chopped spring onions
How to do it
1 Sprinkle the lamb with the coriander, pepper, and 1 tsp salt; fold until blended,
about 1 minute. Divide the meat into quarters and form into 1cm patties. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
2 In a bowl, combine the mayo, sour cream, milk, harissa, and 1 tsp salt. Set aside.
3 On a hot, well-oiled grill or cast-iron pan set on medium high, cook the patties until seared, 1 to 1.5 minutes. Flip them and top each with Gruyere. Cook until medium rare, 1 minute more.
4 Place the burgers on the bottom part of the buns. Slather the cut sides of the
top buns with the sauce and sprinkle with scallions. Close the buns and serve.
