This month has seen the promotion of goat as a food source within the UK. The great BBQ community has been getting behind this initiative in a big way. Just look for the hashtag #goatober in Twitter and you will see some great creations. To find out what it is all about you can read a great article on the Dreaming of a Good Life website.
This recipe was one of my goat creations, the other being a goat curry (recipe to follow). You could very easily substitute lamb into this recipe since goat is not always readily available (or might not be to you taste).
I think burgers are really simple to put together, regardless of the meat you are using. For this recipe, you simply use a food mixer on the dried apricots and pomegranate seeds. Mix these with the goat mince and add some salt. This is where you get your hands ‘messy’ and mix all the ingredients together. Finally, add a Ras El Hanout based rub and then let the burgers sit in the fridge until you are ready to BBQ them.
I also contemplated adding some mint that I also think would work well in the burger.
