Taco night is every night, right? Instead of an asian or mexican inspired taco, I wanted a greek inspired taco. Luckily there’s a “Real Deal Meats” just down the road that always has fresh ground lamb!
-1 tsp canola oil
-1 lb ground lamb
-a pinch of salt, pepper, oregano
-1 garlic clove, minced
-1/4 red onion, minced
-1/4c red wine
-1tbsp tomato paste
-8-10 flour tortillas
-tzatziki + tomato relish
[For the tomato relish, dice up 1 roma tomato, 1/4 english cucumber, 1/4 of a red onion. Mix with 1 tbsp of evoo, 1 tbsp red wine vin and salt and pepper.]
[For the chunky tzatziki- 1/4 cucumber diced, 1/4 red onion diced, 1 garlic clove minced, 2 tbsp mint chopped and 1 c greek yogurt.]
Heat your oil in a pan. Add your lamb, onion and garlic. Season with salt, pepper, and oregano. Cook 5-7 minutes until browned. Add in your red wine, stir. once the red wine has reduced, add in your tomato paste. Stir to incorporate and wake up the tomato paste. Remove from heat.
Assemble your taco’s, and add the tzatziki and tomato relish!
