Ingredients

  • 1/2 small red onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 eggs
  • 500 g ground lamb , or beef
  • 2 tsp chopped fresh rosemary leaves , or 1 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  • Oil grill, then preheat barbecue to high. Finely chop onion half. Mince garlic. In a medium-size bowl, whisk eggs. Add meat. Sprinkle with onion, garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper. Using a fork or your hands, mix just until blended. Overworking ground meat toughens it. Divide mixture into 4 portions and shape into 1-inch- (2.5-cm-) thick burgers, about 3-1/2 inches (9 cm) wide. Place burgers on barbecue. Close lid and grill until burgers feel firm, from 5 to 6 minutes per side. Serve on buns or with salad.
