These burgers are a 50/50 blend of ground leg of lamb and grass fed organic ground beef. Unbeknownst to me, my grocery store had a special on ground lamb going, so they were sold out. But because they have real butchers onsite, one was kind enough to grind a nice piece of boneless leg of lamb for me.  And it was on sale for the same price, so it was a total win!

You can use all lamb or all beef depending on your tastes. Just be sure to use a good Schwarma seasoning mix, such as Sadaf. The Mediterranean herb feta used in this recipe is commonly found in grocery stores, but if you can only find plain feta, then use that.

    I am so glad you enjoyed them, although I am not sure where the cornflour taste you are referring to came from. The one possibility may be your shwarma seasoning, as they are not all the same. Try a different brand next time, and see if that makes a difference.

    The photos looked amazing and I happened to come across good quality bread so there it was! I decided to make this recipe. This is the first one I tried from your website and very rarely do we find time to say thank you…..so this is a message to say thank you! We loved it and I pigged out on two burgers. Just one question – how to avoid the cornflour taste…i mean, how do i know the tikkis are cooked from within, else the powder taste comes through…I kept it on the pan for a longer time anyway….but would like it to be perfect next time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Thank you once again
