The Optimus Lamb Burger

We made this burger for a TV show sometime back, and now we’re sharing it here! This lamb burger is seriously super delicious and dead-simple to make. It’s so good we named it after a robot!

"Deliciousness is the right of all sentient beings..."


250g minced lamb
1 Tsp chilli flakes
1 Tbsp mint leaves, chopped
2 shallots, sliced
A bit of water
1 Tsp sugar
Some feta cheese, crumbled for topping
Some arugula or rocket, for topping

Burger buns you like


1. First, sprinkle the sugar in a hot pan and let it caramelize, about 2 minutes. Add in the shallots and a bit of water. Cook until soft and browned. Set aside.

2. In a bowl, gently mix the lamb, chilli flakes and mint leaves. Form two patties and cook them in a hot pan for 3 minutes each side, or until deeply browned. Keep warm.

3. Toast the buns with some oil or butter then assemble the burgers: bun, arugula, patty, onions, feta cheese, bun.

4. Eat with gusto. Say 'ROLL OUT!'
