    Do not lose this recipe. It is thE LAMB MINCE recipe to end all LAMB MINCE recipes  -  01 Jan 2015


    These burgers turned out really good. My husband makes his own version that is very similar to this recipe (using a little of this and that)...and I wanted to replicate it. Suprisingly enough, this came very close to his. I used dry herbs and threw in some cilantro and green onions. I used a bit more salt than what the recipe called for and used ground pork rather than lamb. I've never cooked with lamb before...simply because I never see it at our grocery store. I was given several compliments and plan on making this again. Thanks for sharing Alan.  -  27 May 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Mighty tasty burgers! I substituted dark corn syrup for the molasses, and white wine for the sherry. Very good - and the burgers held together well on the grill. Just let them cook well before turning over.  -  22 Jun 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
