    Prepare the burger patties
    Heat your BBQ on high, making sure to oil it first. In a large bowl, combine the ground beef; season with ⅔ of the spice blend and S&P. Gently mix to combine and form into two patties of equal size (double for 4 portions).

    Cook the burgers
    Add the burger patties* to the BBQ (or to a large grill pan on medium-high, drizzling with oil first). Cook, 3 to 5 minutes per side, until cooked through. Transfer to a plate and set aside in a warm spot.

    Mise en place
    While the burgers cook, trim the root end of the romaine. Keep 4 of the largest outer leaves aside (double for 4 portions); roughly chop the rest. Thinly slice the cucumbers into rounds. Thinly slice the tomato into rounds.

    Assemble & serve
    Halve the reserved lettuce leaves crosswise; place 2 halves on each plate to make the bottom ‘bun’. Top with the cooked burger patties, tzatziki, tomatoes, remaining cucumbers and lettuce halves. Serve the arugula-feta salad on the side. Bon appétit!
