Make this juicy tender and a tad bit spicy Jerk BBQ Lamb Burger your new summer favorite backyard party delight!
Add the ground lamb, (breaking it up into smaller chunks) to a large mixing bowl.
Add the salt and the jerk marinade. Mix thoroughly until well combined.
Cover with plastic wrap and marinade in refrigerator for 2 hours or up to overnight.
Divide the meat into 8 equal portions.
Shape each portion into a round and then flatten using the palm of your hands. 1/4 inch thickness is best. Use your finger tips to indent the center of the burgers.
Note: The indentation helps with even cooking.
Once all the lamb burgers are shaped, it's time to grill.
Place the burger patties on the grill over direct heat. Grill the first side 4 to 5 minutes (or until no longer sticking to the grill grates).
Use a grill spatula to flip the burgers when they are no longer sticking to the grill.
Grill for another 4 to 5 minutes.
Now you can baste the burgers generously with the BBQ Jerk Sauce. After basting the first side of the burgers, flip. Baste the second side with more of the sauce.
Flip again, cover the grill and allow to cook for 30 to 60 seconds more.
Transfer to a serving platter. Serve on burger buns with your favorite toppings. I like to serve the burgers without the bun and instead serve with brown rice and beans with salad. Enjoy!
