Yield Serves 4 (serving size: 4 patties)
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.

Ingredients

  • 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
