Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 2 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
  • 1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard
  • 1 teaspoon prepared horseradish
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 pound ground lamb
  • 4 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 4 brioche hamburger buns, halved
  • 4 leaves lettuce
  • 1 medium red onion, sliced
  • 1 large beefsteak tomato, sliced 1/4- to 1/2-inch thick
Directions
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the onion, garlic, parsley, mint, mustard, horseradish, Worcestershire, salt, cumin, pepper and egg. Add the lamb and mix well with your hands.

  • Shape the lamb mixture into 4 patties. Press 1 tablespoon of the blue cheese into the center of each patty; roll into balls and then flatten into 3-by-1-inch patties. Transfer to a plate and refrigerate, uncovered, for at least 30 minutes and up to 2 hours.

  • Heat a large cast-iron skillet over medium heat, then add the butter and canola oil. Place the cold patties in the skillet and cook until browned on both sides and cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes per side for medium-well.

  • Assemble the burgers: Place the burgers on the buns, and layer with lettuce, red onions and tomatoes.
