  • 900 grams, Lean minced/ground lamb
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 Romano/Pointed pepper, finely chopped
  • 1-tablespoon Tomato paste, (We now use Heinz Tomato Puree with Mexican Spices and leave out the hot pepper sauce)
  • ½-teaspoon, hot pepper sauce
  • 1 tablespoon, paprika
  • 2 tablespoons, chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoon, chopped fresh rosemary
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 6 burger buns split and toasted to serve
  • For The Cucumber Relish
  • 1 large cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons lime or lemon juice, fresh
  • 2 tablespoons, olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons, chopped fresh mint
  • 2 spring onions/scallions, finely chopped


    1. To make the relish, mix together the ingredients in a large glass bowl, cover and chill for at least 2 hours or it is best chilled overnight.
    2. In a bowl mix the lamb, onion, pepper, and herbs, season with a little salt and pepper and mix thoroughly.
    3. Pre-Heat The Grill
    4. Divide the burger mix into 6 equal portions and shape into patties (we use the burger press available from Lakeland)
    5. Grill/broil allowing 5 minutes on each side for a medium burger and 8 minutes each side for a well-done burger.
