• Easy Paleo Lamb Sliders

    Easy Paleo Lamb Sliders | stupideasypaleo.comThe other day, I was really craving a Greek salad (score for salad cravings, right?!). I had all the veggie components in the fridge, but I definitely wanted to top it with something meaty, so I came up with a quick batch of lamb burgers. In the end, I wound up making them more like sliders – smaller than a burger – and served them with my salad, some Paleo Tzatziki Sauce, and a squeeze of lemon.

    Lamb a bit strong for your palate? Try mixing it with half beef to make the flavor milder. My Greek salad was a combo of tomato, cucumber, sweet onion and olives, drizzled with Kasandrinos olive oil.

    Preparation 5 mins 2017-03-29T00:05:00+00:00
    Cook Time 15 mins 2017-03-29T00:15:00+00:00
    Serves 6-8     adjust servings

    Ingredients

    • 1 lb. of ground lamb (or half beef, half lamb)
    • 1/2 an onion, minced
    • 2 garlic cloves, minced
    • 1 Tablespoon dried dill
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

    Instructions

    1. Mix the ingredients gently in a large bowl until well combined. Overworking the meat will cause it to be tough.
    2. Shape the meat into burgers however large you’d like. I made 8 small sliders. Don’t pack the meat in too tightly or the burger will be dense.
    3. Grill or fry in a pan over medium-high heat until cooked through, 4-5 minutes per side. If preparing in a pan, I like to quickly sear both sides then throw the burgers in a 350F oven for ~10 minutes to finish cooking through.
    4. Serve with Tzatziki for dipping!
