Directions

1. Coat a large grill pan or griddle with cooking spray and set over medium heat. In a large bowl, combine sirloin, salt and black pepper.
2. Shape mixture into 4 equal balls. Press 1 cube of Gorgonzola cheese into the center of each ball, covering cheese completely with meat. Shape balls into patties, each about 1 inch thick.
3. Add burgers to hot pan and cook 5–6 minutes per side, until cooked through (less for medium-rare meat).
4. Meanwhile, mix next 5 ingredients well in a small bowl. Place burgers on rolls and spoon 2 tablespoons yogurt sauce over each burger. Serve remaining sauce on the side.
