Lamb Jibarito Sandwich

img_1248I’m always looking for some type of substitution for the sandwich, since I’ve been Primal and this one is a great tasting alternative. Now because the bread is pan-fried, it’s not an everyday sandwich.

4 Servings



  • 1 lb Lamb, Ground
  • 3 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • 4 Fresh Basil Leaves, Julienne
  • 1 tbsp Fresh Rosemary, chopped
  • ½ tsp Fresh Thyme, chopped
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 chili
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 2 Plantains
  • 4 Tbsp Coconut Oil
  • Salt & Pepper
  • ½ Red Onion, sliced
  • 1 Chipotle Pepper
  • ¼ c Mayonnaise


  1. Cut the plantains in half, then cut them in half again lengthwise.
  2. Slice onions and set to the side.
  3. Heat oil in a frying pan and sauté plantains until they are golden brown.
  4. Remove and place on a cooling rack to allow for dripping of excessive oil.
  5. Mix all patty ingredients and separate into 4 equal portions.
  6. Place one cooked plantain at a time between two cutting boards and press to flatten to 1/4 inch thickness.
  7. Place patties on a grill and cook to desired doneness.
  8. While burgers are cooking return plantains back to frying pan for a second sear and season with salt & pepper.
  9. Dice up chipotle pepper and mix with mayonnaise.

Construct sandwich: plantain, patty, red onions, Chipotle mayonnaise & plantain.
