After experiencing the earthy, smoky, and slightly spicy wonders of vindaloo curry paste in another Plated recipe, we thought it would be the perfect aromatic complement to these meaty tacos. Ground beef and lamb are browned with garlic, onion, and curry paste, then piled into soft flour tortillas along with a crunchy cabbage slaw. Creamy cilantro-lime yogurt rounds out this masterful mashup.

Cooking Steps

  1. Prepare Ingredients

    Prepare Ingredients

    Rinse all produce. Halve lime. Roughly chop cilantro leaves, discarding stems. Peel onion, halve, and thinly slice. Mince garlic. Pat beef and lamb dry with paper towel.

  2. Make Cabbage Slaw

    Make Cabbage Slaw

    In a medium bowl, whisk together ½ packet honey, juice of ½ lime, and ½ tablespoon canola oil. Season with ⅛ teaspoon salt and pepper as desired. Add slaw mix and up to ¼ cup onion to bowl with dressing. Toss to coat, then set aside until ready to serve. Discard remaining honey, or use to sweeten a cup of tea.

  3. Make Cilantro-Lime Yogurt

    Make Cilantro-Lime Yogurt

    In a small bowl, stir together yogurt, half of garlic, juice of remaining lime, ¼ teaspoon salt, and pepper as desired. Gently stir in cilantro to combine, then set aside until ready to serve.

  4. Toast Tortillas

    Toast Tortillas

    Heat a medium pan over medium-high heat. Carefully hover your hand a few inches away from the pan—when you can easily feel heat, add tortillas in a single layer, working in batches as needed. Toast until warmed through, about 30 seconds per side. Stack tortillas and wrap in foil to keep warm until ready to serve.

  5. Cook Beef and Lamb

    Cook Beef and Lamb

    Return pan from tortillas to medium-high heat with 1 tablespoon canola oil. When oil is shimmering, add remaining onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until very soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in remaining garlic until fragrant, 1-2 minutes. Add curry paste and beef and lamb and cook, breaking up meat, until browned, about 5 minutes more. Season with ¼ teaspoon salt, then remove pan from heat.

  6. Plate Curried Lamb Tacos

    Plate Curried Lamb Tacos

    Transfer toasted tortillas to serving plates. Using a slotted spoon, divide curried lamb among tortillas. Top with a dollop of cilantro-lime yogurt and a handful of cabbage slaw, serving any remainder alongside. Dig in!
