Ground Lamb Recipes Will knock Your Socks Off

Good luck searching for ground lamb recipes.

Try a few healthful ground lamb recipes with Tandori seasoning and you'll never wonder what to do with your lamb burger again.

Tandori Lamb Burgers


2 pounds ground lamb, preferably grassfed
1 onion, finely diced
1 Tablespoon garlic
3 Tablespoons Tandori seasoning
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
8 flour tortillas


Mix all ingredients except tortillas and form into 1/4 pound patties. Grill over direct heat until temperature reaches 165° F. Heat tortillas on grill. Place burgers on grilled tortillas and serve open faced.

Tips: The Tandori seasoning dyes the meat and the clear liquid appears to be bloody. This burger can be easily overcooked so be sure to use a thermometer.

Gyro Party Starters


2 pounds ground lamb, preferably grassfed
3 Tablespoons Penzey's Greek Seasoning
2 cucumbers, cut into 14 inch slices
1 loaf party bread
3 cups Tazatziki sauce


Mix Greek seasoning with ground lamb. Form into one inch meatballs. Place on grill and cook until temperature reaches 165° F. Place snack bread on tray and lay slices of cucumber on bread. Place meatball on top of cucumbers. Pipe TzatZiki sauce on top of meatballs.

Tip: If ground lamb is very lean, as it often is in grassfed lamb, add two egg whites to help bind the mixture.

Are you familiar with Tzatziki? It's is a low-fat yogurt dip used primarily in Greek cuisine. Cucumber and garlic give the dip a light, tangy flavor that pairs well with both meats and vegetables.

Lamb burger is good for the diet because it's grassfed--that means it's loaded with omega 3 oils. Here's a health note from the well-known Dr. Sears. Omega-3s are the "good fats" that power up your heart and brain. And your body needs a fresh supply every 24 hours.

I have reviewed evidence that these oils:

• Boost your memory and brainpower.
• Strengthen your heart and blood vessels.
• Maintain blood pressure levels that are already within the normal range.
• Help support joint and muscle health.
• Keep your triglycerides (blood fat) in the safe range.
• Sustain healthy HDL (good cholesterol) levels.
• Protect your blood vessels and nerves.
• Promote steady, regular heart rhythms.
