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!")
Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.
Thoroughly mix ground lamb, rosemary, thyme, garlic powder, salt, and pepper together in a bowl; shape into 4 patties.
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.
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.
