Servings: 4 servings


  • 1 pound goat burger grassfed is preferable
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt (or to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper (or to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon rosemary leaves dried
  • 1 teaspoon thyme leaves dried
  • 1 teaspoon cilantro dried
  • 1 teaspoon cumin ground
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 6 tablespoons vegetable oil or butter divided


  • Place the goat-burger in a mixing bowl, add Worcestershire sauce, mustard, salt, pepper, rosemary, thyme, cilantro, and cumin. Mix well.
  • In a medium skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil over medium to high heat. Add the onion, lower the heat, and sauté for about 2 minutes until nicely browned and caramelized. 
  • Add onions to burger mixture. Mix well. Shape into 4 patties.  In a cast iron skillet heat the remaining olive oil or butter over medium-to-high heat.
  • Cook the patties in oil or butter until medium to medium-well, about 8 - 10 minutes on each side. 


NOTE 1: Don't skimp on the oil. Grassfed chevon burger is very lean and needs the fat to help retain moisture and to prevent sticking.
NOTE 2: As an alternative, you can use your gas grill.
