Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup plain fat-free yogurt
  • 1/3 cup chopped, seeded cucumber
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped, seeded fresh jalapeño chile pepper
  • 1 tablespoon snipped fresh mint or 1 teaspoon dried mint, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 8 ounces 90% lean ground beef
  • Indian flat bread (optional)

Directions

  • For sauce: In a small bowl, stir together yogurt and cucumber. Cover and chill until serving time.
  • In a medium bowl, combine onion, jalapeño pepper, mint, cumin, garlic, and salt. Add ground beef; mix well. Form beef mixture into two 3/4-inch-thick patties.
  • For a charcoal grill, place patties on the rack directly over medium coals. Grill, uncovered, for 14 to 18 minutes or until patties are done (160F), turning once. If desired, serve patties on flat bread. Spoon cucumber sauce over patties.
  • Note: The internal color of a burger is not a reliable doneness indicator. A beef or pork patty cooked to 160?F is safe, regardless of color. To measure the doneness of a patty, insert an instant-read thermometer through the side of the patty to a depth of 2 to 3 inches.
