Paleo Moroccan Lamb & Beef Burgers

Shit these were good! For the longest time now, I’ve been wanting to make a Moroccan Tagine, but didn’t want to use cauliflower as a replacement for the couscous.

As you may know, cauliflower and couscous taste nothing alike, so this substitute wouldn’t work. Because of that I never attempted to make a paleo version…

Why am I telling you this? Really it’s just to let you know that I’ve always had a hankering for food from that part of the world and that recently I figured out what may work as the elusive substitute for couscous.

Anyways, I made these the other night because I found some ground lamb lost down in the bottom of my freezer and needed to use it up 🙂


  • 1 lbs Ground Lamb
  • 1 lbs Ground Beef
  • 1 tbsp Cumin
  • 2 tsp Coriander
  • 1/2 tsp Ginger
  • 2 Cloves Garlic (crushed)
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Fennel Seed


  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl until well mixed.
  2. Separate into 6 balls of meat.
  3. Flatten and then grill or broil until done.

I served these with Babaganouj and a Tomato Almond Couscous Salad
