  1. Put the lamb in a mixing bowl and add all of the ingredients except the vegetable oil and harissa sauce. Blend the mixture thoroughly by hand.
  2. Shape the mixture into 8 equal-size patties similar to hamburgers.
  3. Heat the oil in a nonstick skillet large enough to hold all of the patties. Two pans may be necessary.
  4. Add the patties to the skillet. Cook them over medium-high heat about 3 to 4 minutes on each side, depending on the degree of doneness desired. Drain on paper towels and serve with the harissa sauce on the side.
