Billy's pairing for the 2016 Old Vine Tinaquaic Syrah!

Foxen owner Billy Wathen's recommendation for a food pairing for the 2016 Old Vine Tinaquaic Syrah is.... Lamb burgers!  Enjoy!

(Recipe from Allrecipes.com)


1 pound ground lamb 
1 4-inch sprig rosemary, chopped 
4 sprigs thyme, chopped 
1 tablespoon garlic powder 
1 pinch salt 
1 pinch ground black pepper  
3 tablespoons mayonnaise  
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard 
4 hamburger buns, split and toasted 
4 thick slices tomato 
1 cup baby mixed salad greens

(Billy adds "if you want cheese use dilled Havarti!")


Step 1

Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.

Step 2

Thoroughly mix ground lamb, rosemary, thyme, garlic powder, salt, and pepper together in a bowl; shape into 4 patties.

Step 3

Cook the burgers until they are beginning to firm and are hot and slightly pink in the center, about 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 140 degrees F (60 degrees C). Alternately, you can cook the burgers to your desired degree of doneness. Rest burgers while assembling toppings.

Step 4

Mix mayonnaise and mustard together in a small bowl; spread 1 tablespoon of the mixture onto one side of each bun. Put a burger onto each bun and top with tomato and greens. Sandwich with remaining bun half to serve.
