Preheat an outdoor barbecue for medium-high heat and lightly oil the cooking grate.
Mix the lamb, egg, oregano, sherry, vinegar, crushed chillies, garlic, spring onions, mint, coriander, breadcrumbs, salt and pepper together in a mixing bowl with your hands until evenly blended. Form into five burgers.
Cook on the preheated barbecue until the burgers are cooked to your desired degree of doneness, about 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the centre should read 70 degrees C. Serve in the burger buns.
Alternative cooking methods
These burgers can also be pan-fried or cooked under the grill.
This was a easy recipe that produced delicious burgers. I did not have any coriander, sherry or dry breadcrumbs. I added 1/2 slice of 50/50 bread (made into breadcrumbs). I did not have enough fresh mint as have been using my plant quite a bit recently, so added 1/2 teaspoon of dried. Next time I would add 1 teaspoon of the dried mint if fresh not available. - 03 Jun 2013
