2 pounds ground lamb
1 shallot, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
2 tablespoons olive oil (if cooking on a stovetop)
4 rounds pita bread, sliced into pockets and toasted


In a large bowl, combine the lamb with the shallot, garlic, thyme, pepper, and salt. Form 4 patties, each about 3/4 inch thick. Place on a medium-hot grill and cook 5 to 6 minutes per side. (To cook on a stovetop, heat the oil in a grill pan over medium heat and cook the patties 6 minutes per side.) Serve in the pita pockets and top with Cucumber-Mint Relish, if desired, and mint leaves to taste.
