Here's an easy take on sliders that uses pomegranate molasses as a secret ingredient. It's available in Middle Eastern grocery stores and at large, well-stocked supermarkets. It is inexpensive and keeps well and for a long time at room temperature. I usually serve these slider patties with rice or bread, a salad, and one or two vegetable sides.
Serves 4 (serving size: 4 patties)


+ Add To Shopping List
2 tablespoons pomegranate molasses, divided
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh mint
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 pound lean ground lamb
1 garlic clove, minced
Cooking spray


Hands-on: 25 Minutes
Total: 25 Minutes

1. Combine 1 tablespoon pomegranate molasses, mint, and the next 7 ingredients (through garlic); stir to combine. Divide mixture into 16 equal portions; gently shape each into a 1/4-inch-thick patty.

2. Heat a grill pan over high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add patties to pan; cook 1 1/2 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Place patties on a platter; lightly brush patties with remaining 1 tablespoon molasses.
