Saudi Sliders: Hashi Burgers (Camel)


2lbs ground Hashi (camel) meat
2 Tbs Ras-El-Hanout (Moroccan spice blend) or make your own...see recipe below
2/3 cup bread crumbs
1 egg
optional: caramelized onions, lettuce, tomato, cheese
Ras-El-Hanout: (this makes 2 Tbs)
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp sald
3/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp cayenne
1/2 tsp ground allspice
1/4 tsp ground cloves
(mix all together with a whisk until well blended)


Preheat your gas grill or get your charcoal grill ready.
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix gently. Form into patties (I made 5 slightly large ones) and gently press your thumb into the middle of each patty to make a small indention. Place the patties in the fridge for 15 minutes. *Note, the patties were still quite moist and fell apart a bit on the grill...but not too much) Grill the patties on one side for about 10 minutes per side. Top with your fave toppings and enjoy!

Camel meat is known for its large muscular fibers and high water content. It has a slightly sweet taste due to the presence of glycogen and is usually a deep red color.
Camel meat has two qualities which distinguish it from beef and mutton: it has lower fat and higher moisture content. Fat in camel meat amounts to 1-2% whereas in beef that number is 4-8%.
Camel meat has very high Iron content versus other kinds of meat.
As part of a healthy diet, Camel meat can help reduce risks of cardiovascular disease through lower intake of saturated fats.
