Did you know that May is National Grilling Month? We plan to celebrate this important holiday as often as possible throughout the month.

Luckily, we have plenty of lamb cuts that are perfectly suited to grilling. Our Mother’s Day Package includes loin chops, sirloin roast and ground lamb, all of which grill up quickly and deliciously. Here’s a recipe for one of our most inexpensive, sustainable and tasty cuts – ground lamb.

Feta Lamb Burgers with Mint Aioli

  • 1 package Lava Lake ground lamb
  • 1/4 cup crumbled  feta cheese
  • black pepper
  • mint aioli (recipe below)

Heat up your grill.

Combine lamb with feta and a few twists of freshly ground black pepper. Form into four patties. Use your thumb to press a dimple into the center of each patty. Chill the patties in the refrigerator until your grill is ready.

Grill until an instant read thermometer registers your desired temperature (130 for medium  rare, 140 for medium). Serve on a toasted bun with the mint aioli.

Aioli (recipe inspired by Epicurious)

  • 1/4 cup of fresh mint
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • Salt

In a food processor or blender, blend yolk, lemon juice and mustard. In a bowl, combine two oils, and slowly add to yolk mixture until mix is emulsified. Add fresh mint until incorporated. Mince garlic with a large pinch of salt and stir into mixture.
