A succulent, juicy beef burger featuring favourite Cypriot spices and a topping of tzatziki and marinated red onions. An explosion of flavour and a must for anyone who loves the flavours of authentic gyros, soutzouk and kebabs.
Sumac and Urfa biber, a dried Turkish chilli, are available in Turkish or Middle Eastern markets, or online.
I use all recipes for all my recipes and I have never written a review. That's how good these are. I shaped these into logs and used a whole wheat low carb wrap along with the sauce and some tomatoes and onions. Could not find Urfa biber so used a little less than the called for amount of chili powder. My husband said that he could eat these every night for the rest of the summer. Awesome! - 14 Aug 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Very Tastey! I did make a few changes. Used sour cream instead of yogurt and did not have the spices of sumac or coriander so did without and they were still great. Served with tomatoe slices on them. My Husband ate two because they were so good. Will make again for sure! - 27 Jul 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Really great burgers. I used about 1½ cups of Greek yogurt and skipped the straining step. The urfa biber was wonderful; it has a smoky, almost chocolatey flavor. I didn't need a whole red onion; next time I'll just eyeball how much I think I’ll need for four burgers. I will make these again! - 06 May 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
