1/2 cup uncooked bulgur
2 cups onions, chopped
1 cup parsley and/or mint, fresh, packed
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground allspice
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp table salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 lb lean ground beef
4 sprays cooking spray
1 tbsp olive oil, divided
1 medium lemon, cut into 8 wedges
Meanwhile, using a food processor, process onions and parsley (or mint) until very well combined. Add cooked bulgur, cumin, allspice, cinnamon, salt and pepper, process thoroughly. Add beef, a little at a time, and process until thoroughly combined (or you can combine beef b y hand, if you prefer).
Working with wet hands, form beef mixture into 16 egg-shaped patties (like the size of a jumbo egg).
Coat a very large skillet with cooking spray, set over medium heat. Add 1/2 tablespoon oil, heat oil until it shimmers. Cook 8 patties, until golden brown, about 6 minutes per side. Remove to a plate and cover to keep warm; repeat with remaining ingredients. Serve hot, warm or cold.
