Lamb Burger with Yogurt Sauce


This is a savory burger that has a Greek sauce to give it a Mediterranean flavor.


  • 1 -inch piece cucumber, peeled, halved, seeded, and thinly sliced

  • 1 small garlic clove, minced

  • 3 tablespoons low-fat Greek yogurt

  • ½ teaspoon fresh lemon juice

  • ¼ pound ground lamb

  • ¼ teaspoon ground coriander

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil

  • 1 hamburger bun, toasted


  1. In a small bowl, mix together cucumber, garlic, yogurt, and lemon juice; set yogurt sauce aside. Form lamb into about a 1/2-inch-thick patty. Sprinkle both sides with coriander and season with salt and pepper.

  2. In a small skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Add lamb patty to skillet and cook 3 minutes. Flip and cook just until cooked through (a little pink in the center is fine), 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer patty to bun and top with yogurt sauce.

Cook's Notes

Ground beef or pork are other great options for this burger, instead of lamb.
