i didn't measure anything... i just added salt, granulated garlic, etc. all "from the wrist," i.e., no measuring at all. there were a few other seasonings, but i can't remember them.

this is all like a bad dream... i'm gonna spend the rest of my life trying to recreate those bites of joy.

I guess ground beef is like eggs now, no end to the possibilities.

Well, black chef - I would have to say that the obvious thing you did was that you "mixed 1 lb of ground lamb with 1 lb of 80/20 ground beef, and threw-in a few seasonings."

Unless the spices you threw in were over-powering the flavor ... I'm betting the "unique" flavor was from the lamb.

I've been making a hamburger, then putting it between english muffin bread (not english muffins, but a toasting bread) with velveeta. You get a grilled cheese-burger things.

They are **** tasty.

That's what I use for the meat mix in the recipe of my Italian meatballs - great grandmother is from Sicilly so it's family tradition. With her mix she adds veal as well; hard to get it though, at least at a reasonable price.

Very good when you mix it all together, the texture is excellent and the flavor is outstanding.
