Serves: 4

Tools: Tongs or spatula

Passive Prep Time: 0 minutes

Active Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes



  • 2 lbs ground lamb
  • 1⁄2 a purple onion, minced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 red bell peppers, cut in half and cored
  • 1⁄2 cup Italian parsley, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of cumin
  • 1 tablespoon of fennel seed
  • 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon of coarse sea salt
  • high heat cooking oil for grill grates



  • cucumber
  • tzatziki - I buy this from the store, but if you want to make it homemade there are tons of recipes online
  • butter lettuce
  • brioche burger buns
  • feta cheese


    Step 1: In a bowl, combine the lamb meat, onion, garlic, spices, salt, and parsley. Mix until well combined, then divide the mixture into 4 equal portions. Roll into burgers and flatten sightly.

    Step 2: Preheat your grill to 500 degrees, clean and oil the grates.

    Step 3: Wash your lettuce, slice your cucumbers, and prepare all other toppings for burger assembly.

    Step 4: Place the burgers on the grill along with the halved peppers. Grill for about 5 minutes, then flip everything over and cook for another 5 minutes or so. Burgers are medium rare when internal temperature reaches 145 degrees.

    Step 5: Remove everything from the grill. While the burgers rest for a few minutes, slice the peppers into thin strips.

    Step 6: Assemble your burgers with all the toppings you like.
