I've paired traditional Greek ingredients like feta & lamb to create a one-of-a-kind burger experience. Top the burger with your choice of two delicious condiments–tzatziki or tirokateri, or both.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Gently pull off the leaves from the stems for the oregano and dill. Mince the Fresh Oregano (1/2 cup) and chop the Fresh Dill (1 cup).
Step 2
Slice the Plum Tomato (3).
Step 3
Crumble the Feta Cheese (0.25 pound).
Step 4
Wash and shred the Iceberg Lettuce (1/2 head).
Step 5
In a large bowl, use your hands to combine the Ground Lamb (2 pound), oregano, half of the chopped fresh dill, Coarse Sea Salt (2 teaspoon), and the crumbled feta.
Step 6
Shape the mixture into 8 flat oval patties.
Step 7
Heat your grill to medium high heat. Put the patties on the grill and cook uncovered for 5 minutes. Flip when necessary and cook for another 5 minutes-do not press the patties as they cook or you will loose all the juices!
Step 8
Brush the Pocketless Pita Bread (8) with Olive Oil (to taste) and throw them on the grill or in a toaster oven to lightly toast.
Step 9
To make the Tzatziki, peel the cucumber, slice it in half lengthwise, and scoop out the seeds.
Step 10
Coarsely chop the Cucumber (1/2 cup).
Step 11
Gently pull the leafy Fresh Dill (1/4 cup) leaves from the stems and roughly chop.
Step 12
Mince the Garlic (3 clove).
Step 13
Combine the Greek Yogurt (6 ounce), cucumber, Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (1 tablespoon), Lemon (1/2), Kosher Salt (to taste), Ground Black Pepper (to taste), dill and Garlic (2 clove) in a food processor or blender until well mixed. Transfer to a separate bowl, cover and refrigerate for at least an hour, until thickened.
Step 14
Combine the Feta Cheese (8 ounce), Greek Yogurt (1 tablespoon), Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (2 tablespoon), Red Wine Vinegar (1 tablespoon), Garlic (1 clove), and Chili Pepper (to taste) in a food processor or blender until smooth.
Step 15
To build the burgers, place a lamb patty on the center of each pita. Cover with sliced tomatoes, shredded lettuce, the reserved dill, and a couple dollops of tzatziki or tirokafteri. Add Hot Sauce (to taste), if so desired.
