Gather all your ingredients.
Put the meat into a large mixing bowl. I like to use ground turkey
Add the currents. I like to be extra generous here. The currents add a pleasant sweetness.
Next add the tomato paste.
Add ground cumin. Again, I like a generous amount.
Add ground cinnamon, salt and pepper.
Spray or oil a large nonstick griddle and set over medium heat.
Form the meat mixture into burgers and place on hot pan. Cook, turning once 3-4 minutes on each side for medium.
I like them to form a crust.
I like to serve with taboule, tzadeki, roasted red peppers and eggplant, and humus. The burgers are also delicious served as a sandwich on pita or multigrain buns.
