Lamb Patties with Red Cabbage and Radish Slaw
(Adapted from recipe courtesy of BonAppetit.com, November 2014)
2 garlic cloves, finely minced
1/4 cup fat-free plain Greek yogurt
4 Tbsp fresh lemon juice, divided
6 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, divided
Freshly ground black pepper
1 lb. ground lamb
1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1/2 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 small head of red cabbage, thinly sliced
1/4 English hothouse cucumber, halved lengthwise, thinly sliced
2 radishes, thinly sliced
4 pita breads
Whisk garlic, yogurt, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, and 2 tablespoons oil in small bowl until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Set sauce aside.
Using your hands, gently mix lamb, onion, parsley, coriander, cumin, 2 tablespoons oil, salt and pepper in a large bowl just to combine. Form into 12 3/4-inch-thick patties. Set aside on a platter.
Toss cabbage, cucumber, radishes and remaining 2 tablespoons lemon juice and 2 tablespoons oil in a medium bowl and season with salt and pepper. Set aside while grilling the patties.
Heat a flat cast-iron grill plate on the grill over direct medium heat. Working in batches cook until medium-rare, about 4 minutes, per side. Transfer to a wire rack on a foil-lined, rimmed baking sheet, let rest 5 minutes before serving.
Serve patties on pita with a serving of slaw and a dollop of sauce.
