Ground Beef Soft Tacos

Ground beef soft tacos


This is our dinner last Tuesday night because I can't cook coz I don't feel well due to my cough and it's already past 9pm and we just got back from the clinic where I had to consult a doctor due to this bad cough.

Ingredients:

Pita bread

Seasoned Beef Filling:

Ground  beef - 200 g.

Garlic, crushed and chopped - 3 cloves

Onion, diced - 1 medium

Sunflower oil - 1 tbsp

Ground cumin - to taste

Ground corriander - to taste

Ground Turmeric - to taste

Ground anis seed - to taste

Ground hot chillies - to taste

Salt to taste and ground pepper - to taste

Other fillings and toppings:

Lettuce leaves, shredded

Ripe Tomatoes, diced

mayo-garlic dip/sauce (see my recipe on My Mayo – Garlic Dip)

Cooking and Assembly Procedure:

1) Heat the Pita bread in a griller.

2) Heat the sunflower oil in a skillet then saute the garlic, onion, and beef . Add the rest of the beef filling ingredients and cook till beef is tender.

3) Layout the pita bread and fill it with the beef filling, the lettuce, and the diced tomato.  Drizzle with the mayo-garlic dip.

My husband had to add more mayonnaise, and other spices and chilis for stronger flavor.
