Absolute a yummy sandwich, pretty easy to make, great if you wanna spoil your love ones for Saturday lunch
4 servings
  • 1 ½ lbs. ground lean lamb
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh or 3/4 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  • About 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cucumbers (each 3/4 lb.)
  • ½ cup plain low-fat yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh mint leaves
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 4 pocket breads (about 6 in.), cut in half crosswise
1) In a bowl, mix lamb with garlic, oregano, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper. Shape mixture into 8 equal oblong patties, each about 1/4 inch thick.
Place patties on a rack in a broiler pan. Broil 4 to 6 inches from heat until meat is browned on each side and just barely pink in center (cut to test), 7 to 10 minutes total.
While lamb patties cook, peel cucumbers and thinly slice. Mix slices with yogurt, mint, and lemon juice to make a cucumber salad.
On each of 4 plates, place 2 lamb patties, 1/4 of the cucumber salad, and 2 pocket bread halves. Tuck meat into bread, adding cucumber salad and salt to taste.
