Greek Lamb Tacos with Tzatzki Sauce

Prep Time
Cook Time

Step 1

To cook the lamb: Heat the olive oil in a nonstick skillet and cook the onion over medium-high heat until softened and beginning to brown (about 2 minutes). Add the garlic and oregano and sauté until fragrant (about 30 seconds). Add the lamb and cook completely, breaking it up as you go (about 5 minutes). Season with 1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt and 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper.

Step 2

To make the Tzatziki Sauce: Squeeze as much water out of the cucumber as possible using a clean kitchen towel (see notes). In a small bowl, mix together the yogurt, 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 minced small clove of garlic, dill, and lemon juice. Add the cucumbers and stir.

Step 3

To assemble the tacos: Spread 1/4 cup of the tzatziki sauce on each tortilla, followed by 1/4 of the lamb mixture, and the diced cucumber, fresh tomatoes, and red onion divided evenly. Finish with 1 oz. of crumbled feta on each taco.

Step 4

Serve immediately, wrapped in foil or held together with a toothpick if desired.
