lamb patty:

  • 1 lb ground lamb meat
  • ½ tbsp red chilli pepper
  • ½ tbsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic grated
  • 1 1/2 tbsp sea salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

Paleo burger bun:

  • 2 cups mashed japanese yams* (alt. garnet sweet potato)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp arrowroot powder or sweet potato powder
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 medium tomato
  • handful of fresh basil


Lamb patties:

  • Mix well the ground lamb with all ingredients under "lamb patty". Make lamb burger patties (about 5-6 patties). Pan fry them until golden brown and cooked through. Set aside.

Paleo burger buns:

  • Mash the yam using either a fork or a potato masher and season with the ingredients under "paleo burger bun".
  • Form size golf balls,  Use a tarte rim (or egg rim) to press the yam evenly into a tart pan to form a round tarte shape. (Make sure the surface is smooth.)
  • Heat coconut oil over medium heat, remove the tarte rim and pan-sear the yam until golden brown (around 2 minutes each side)

Assemble the burger:

  • Layer the burger buns with lamb patties, sliced tomato, and basil.
  • If you like, insert a toothpick to hold the bun together OR wrap them in wax paper individually.


* Japanese yam has dark red/purple-ish outer skin and white color flesh inside. I found mine at local WholeFoods. Most large Asian grocery stores, Chinese and Korean grocery stores also carry Japanese yams.
