Lamb Merquez Patties

Credit for this recipe is Risottogirl


 

For a pound of ground lamb I use:


1 teaspoon each ground toasted fennel seed (sometimes I use fennel pollen), ground cumin, ground coriander and  1/4 teaspoon cinnamon. We like it spicy so I use 3 teaspoons harissa (from a tube, I buy it in France) and 4 cloves of garlic, finely minced and about a teaspoon of kosher salt. I mix it gently and form  4 patties (or  more meatballs).

Then how do you cook it, in a skillet? For how long?

Until done to your liking? In a skillet or on a grill...


It really depends on the patty size etc., but overdone lamb is yucky, IMO

I got them well done and was surprised how juicy they were. Could be a fluke with me and the grill though.

enough fat. If the lamb is lean it gets dry.

I divide 1 lb into 4 patties and cook them in my cast iron pan which I get real hot.  4 min. per side do it.  My lamb has lot's of fat so no prob with dryness.

Does it take a while to "take" ?


I noticed the title of the thread still looks the same (to me at least).


It says Marquez and it should say MERQUEZ

Actually they haven't :) Not in the thread title at least.


It is Merquez not Marquez!
