I love lamb, and for the first time this weekend I had a lamb burger. (I had this out, not home cooked but I'm looking for your home cooking experience/feedback). So I was expecting a burger to be bursting with that lamb / slightly game-ish flavor that I love. Instead, the burger was rather bland, with perhaps a hint of lamb flavor, but nowhere near the mouthwatering flavorful burger I was anticipating. If I hadn't known I ordered a lamb burger I would have eaten this and just assumed it was a seasoned beef burger, with exception to it's texture.
I was also a little surprised by the consistency.....unlike beef, it was very "soft" in it's texture. So my question is lamb in ground up version less flavorful? is this common for lamb burgers? Did the restaurant cut the beef with too much filler? Did that account for the "soft" texture of the mixture?
I'm by no way saying the burger was bad, but just a let down in what I was expecting.
