Taco Tuesday is a a weekly tradition across the street, which means that every Tuesday our kids clamor to join the neighbor girls for dinner. I love the idea, especially because tacos are so versatile. Use flatbread instead of tortillas, mint-yogurt sauce instead of salsa and a cinnamon-scented meat mixture for the filling, and you've got a Greek twist on Taco Tuesday.
I start with the yogurt sauce because it needs to sit for a while to allow the flavors to marry. I mix plain yogurt with a few pinches of salt, some lemon juice and minced fresh mint. Stir together and refrigerate until serving.
Last night I used ground beef, but only because I couldn't find ground lamb and the grocery store. I browned them beef with a little minced onion, then added 1/2 teaspoon each cinnamon and salt and 1 teaspoon ground cumin.
While the meat cooked, I assembled a salad for the top. I added cucumbers, carrots and romaine and wished I had some tomatoes, feta and dill. I put out the meat mixture, yogurt sauce and salad with some rooster sauce and warmed flatbreads, and everyone assembled their own.
Look! Landcruisers does Taco Tuesday, too.
