Lamb Burgers w/Apricot, Mint, and Pistachios (Feta Optional)

This recipe is inspired by the Lamb Burger I ate this weekend, at Davis St Tavern (Portland, OR). I ordered mine without the bun and asked for it to be served on a bed of Arugula- perfection! Here is my version:

Ingredients
2lbs Ground Lamb
3oz Dried Apricots, diced
1/4oz Fresh Mint, chiffonade
1T. Sea Salt
3oz Feta, crumbled (omit, if you do not eat dairy- I enjoy it on occasion)
  1. Add ingredients to a bowl and blend [with your hands] to combine.
  2. Meat can be formed into burgers, meatballs, or mini burgers. Use an ice cream scoop or melon baller for uniform patties/balls. 
  3. Heat a heavy-bottom pan to medium-high. DO NOT oil your pan, the lamb likely has enough fat as is. Transfer patties to the pan and cook until browned (about 2-3 minutes, depending on size). Flip and continue to cook until burgers reach desired doneness. 
  4. Remove from pan and left rest 1-minute. 
  5. Serve atop Arugula (or other greens) tossed with THIS dressing or other citrus-based vinaigrette and sprinkle with garnish (recipe below). 

Garnish
1/4oz Fresh Mint
2T Shelled, Salted Pistachio Nuts
  1. Grind in a food processor, until finely chopped.
  2. Sprinkle over burger.

Stumbled upon your blog looking for other Paleo bloggers. I'm slowly getting into it but having to make some tweaks because I eat kosher too. Love your blog. Great experiments and glad you love Elana's Pantry too!!

Oh, why must the best-tasty things be so expensive!! My husband is a pistachio hound and I am a fiend for the baby sheep, but, ye gods, the prices!!!
I'm making this next week.
