Made these last night for brother's bday dinner. Everyone loved them. Bought pre-ground lamb at Wegman's. Burgers turned out great. They were really moist with great flavor. The spices in the burger really complemented the radiccio, roasted peppers (bottled), and yogurt sauce. Served with CL Rosemary Roasted Mashed Potatoes. Excellent!
Lamb Burgers with Indian Spices and Yogurt-Mint Sauce

OMG, delicious! I also cheated and bought ground lamb, which I am sure increased the saturated fat content. (But, at least it was grass-fed, locally-raised lamb!) I loved the interplay of flavors, between the bitter radicchio, the tangy sauce, and the sweet bell peppers. Can't wait to make it again.

1. Too much effort. Seriously, this takes a LOT of time for a burger. 2. Too much onion and shallot. The mix overwhelms the lamb both in taste and texture, with the result being VERY fragile patties that barely hold together on a grill. 3. The radicchio was beyond foul, and overwhelmed all other flavors. Substitute arugula and save your taste buds from a horrid experience. 4. Cooking time was off, unless you covered the grill. Why don't more CL recipes specify grilling with top on or off? It's an important part of the grilling process. Just not worth the effort. I won't make these again.

YUMMM! We didn't have a meat grinder so we used a food processor to make the patties and they are significantly juicier than the pre-ground stuff! The family is going through a cucumber sauce phase and having a burger was a great way to mix it up. Nom

So good. Made it the long way save that I had curry spices already. Next time, I think we will get the lamb ground at the store or at least deboned. and by roasted peppers.

I love curry and I love lamb but for some reason, it didn't work out in this burger. It wasn't bad, just not so great. The burgers didn't hold together well, too. I bought really good, fresh lamb shoulder and used my grinder attachment to grind it. The lamb was so good (and expensive!), seemed like I wasted it turning into this burger. Would have been better as a kebobs.
