  • 1 tablespoon ground coriander 
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin 
  • 1 tablespoon sumac 
  • 1/2 tablespoon cayenne 
  • Salt and pepper
Yogurt Sauce
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • Zest and Juice of 1 small lemon 
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic 
  • 1/2 tablespoon ground cumin 
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro, finely chopped

Assembly

Directions

For the kofte burger: With your hands, mix together the ground beef, onion, coriander, cumin, sumac, cayenne and some salt and pepper in large bowl. Divide the mixture into four 4-inch patties.

For the yogurt sauce: Mix the Greek yogurt, lemon zest and juice, garlic, cumin, cilantro, dill, mint and cucumber in a large bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Cook burgers on a grill or in a skillet (recommended) to the desired doneness. Salt and pepper the burgers liberally and let rest for 5 minutes to ensure a juicy patty.

Split the burger buns and spread about 1 teaspoon harissa each of the cut-sides. Layer with a burger, arugula and parsley. Top with some yogurt sauce and chow down!

Cook's Note

Let burger rest for at least 5 minutes off heat after cooking to ensure a juicy patty.
