Adapted from a Persian Mama recipe
For Labor Day it is tradition to have a barbecue. Just to be different this year, I decided to make koobideh hamburgers (alternate spelling kubideh). In Persia (Iran), this finely ground and seasoned meat is usually grilled on a thick skewer. Forming it into a patty to barbecue is a most California Fusion thing to do. While the burger was international the condiments were all American—well sort of—Japanese mayonnaise, German mustard, tomatoes, sweet onions, Romaine lettuce and the buns of your choice.
