Lamb Köfte with Yogurt Sauce and Muhammara
This is a great departure from the same old hamburgers you might have been grilling this summer. Kofte are Middle Eastern burgers and are made with ground lamb (you could also use beef), fresh mint, garlic, onion, cumin, and cayenne and have such a great flavor. Muhammara is usually pureed together to make a dip, but I used some of the traditional ingredients and grilled red and yellow peppers with onions, (you could also use jarred red peppers) and mix it with sautéed onions and then drizzle with pomegranate molasses which is a sweet and slightly sour syrup that really compliments the sweetness of the roasted peppers and onions. The yogurt sauce is made with tahini (sesame paste), yogurt and lemon juice and then quickly grill some Middle Eastern flatbreads and put it all together for an incredible combination.
