SPICED MIDDLE EASTERN LAMB PATTIES WITH PITA AND YOGURT



Spiced Middle Eastern Lamb Patties with Pita and Yogurt image

Whether you spell it kefta or köfte or kufte or some other variation, you can find versions of these lamb or beef meatballs throughout the Middle East. The seasoning mixture here is simple, with spices you should already have on your shelf and you can play around, adding fresh or dried mint, grated onion, or a pinch of cinnamon. And if you like a garlicky yogurt sauce, by all means, add a minced clove.

Yield Makes 4 to 6 pita sandwiches

Number Of Ingredients 14

Yogurt sauce:
1 cup plain full-fat or low-fat yogurt
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons finely chopped herbs, such as mint, dill or cilantro, plus herb sprigs, for serving
Kosher salt
Patties and pita:
1 1/2 pounds ground lamb or beef
1 tablespoon minced garlic (about 1 large clove)
1 tablespoon coriander
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 1/2 teaspoons hot paprika
11/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
4 to 6 pita bread rounds

Steps:

  • For the sauce:
  • In a small bow, whisk the yogurt with the lemon juice. Stir in the chopped herbs, season with salt and refrigerate until ready to use.
  • For the patties and pita:
  • In a bowl, use your hands to mix together all of the ingredients, except for the pita. Form the mixture into twelve 3-inch oval patties (about 1 inch thick). Arrange the patties on a plate and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, until firm
  • Preheat a grill for at least 10 minutes and prepare it for grilling over moderately high heat. If you are using a charcoal grill, leave one area where you can grill the pita indirectly.
  • Oil the grill grates and grill the patties until dark brown grill marks form on the bottom, 5 to 6 minutes. Flip the patties and grill for 4 to 6 minutes longer, until just cooked through.
  • Meanwhile, wrap the pita in foil and set the package on the top shelf of a gas grill or in the cooler spot of a charcoal grill and allow them to warm through, 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Wrap 2 or 3 patties in each pita, spoon some of the yogurt sauce alongside and serve with herb sprigs, passing the remaining yogurt sauce at the table.

MOROCCAN-SPICED LAMB BURGERS



Moroccan-Spiced Lamb Burgers image

Had these delcious burgers for lunch today. DH and I both thought they tasted like something we could be eating at our favorite Middle Eastern restaurant. The pita bread, yogurt, and tomato topping was really delicious with the spiced lamb. From Williams-Sonoma "Essentials of Grilling."

Categories     Lunch/Snacks

Time 37m

Yield 4 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 14

1 1/2 lbs ground lean lamb
1 yellow onion, finely chopped
3/4 cup fresh breadcrumb (fine)
1/4 cup chopped of fresh mint
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 teaspoon ground cumin
3/4 teaspoon ground coriander
3/4 teaspoon salt (plus more to taste)
1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1 large tomatoes, diced
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
4 whole wheat pita bread
1 cup plain yogurt (whole milk or low fat)
1 cup alfalfa sprout

Steps:

  • In a bowl, combine the lamb, onion, bread crumbs, mint, garlic, cumin, coriander, 3/4 tsp salt, and the cayenne. Using your hands, mix gently but thoroughly. Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions and form each into an oval patty about 4 1/2 inches long and about 3/4 inch thick.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the tomato and cilantro and season with salt. Let the patties and the tomato mixture stand at room temperature for 15 minutes, or cover and refrigerate for up to 2 hours. If refrigerated, remove from the refrigerator 15 minutes before grilling.
  • Prepare a charcoal or gas grill for direct grilling over high heat.
  • Grill the burgers over the hottest part of a charcoal fire or directly over the heat elements of a gas grill, turning once, until nicely charred and cooked to your liking, 5-6 minutes per side for medium. About 1 minute before the burgers are done, place the pita breads along the edges of a charcoal grill where the heat is less intense, or on an area of a gas grill with lower heat, so they can warm.
  • To assemble the sandwiches, coat the pockets of the pita breads lightly with some of the yogurt, then slip a lamb burger into each bread. Add the tomato mixture, sprouts, and the remaining yogurt, or serve these condiments on the side.
