    Cookgirl's Note:

    Local recipe. For a vegetarian version, substitute any seasonal vegetable such as eggplant, summer squash/zucchini, acorn squash, portabello mushrooms, etc. either grilled or roasted. *FRESH* herbs only, please! Even quicker to prepare if you use leftover shredded meat or vegetables!

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 6 -8 corn tortillas (5 inch, I made my own using masa harina dry mix)


    Meat mixture


    1. 1
      Prep the garnishes and arrange on a serving platter. Cover until ready to use and set aside or refrigerate.
    2. 2
      In a large skillet heat up olive oil on medium heat. Brown the ground beef until half way cooked then add the garlic. Cook until the meat is no longer pink; approximately 5 minutes.
    3. 3
      Remove skillet from stove and season meat with salt and pepper, to taste. Now stir in about 1 tablespoon of pomegranate molasses and 1 teaspoon of sumac. Taste test. Add more of either-to your preference.
    4. 4
      Serve the meat warm with the corn tortillas and platter of garnishes. We served simple dark red kidney beans on the side which were lightly seasoned with cumin powder, salt and pepper. I also slightly mashed the beans, too.

      These tacos are absolutely delicious! What a wonderful idea for tacos -- love the pomegranate molasses and sumac. Used white corn tortillas and made a garnish platter with cucumber, avocado, tomatoes, red onion and basil. These tacos will be on my menu often -- so healthy and flavorful. Adding to my Best of 2013 Cookbook for sure. Made for the NA/ME tag, September, 2013.

      I made a vegetarian version of this for my lunch today with an eggplant from my garden and it was delicious! :) I used a small eggplant (Black Beauty variety; was not quite 1/2 lb), diced & tossed with olive oil. Cooked in a nonstick skillet until browned & soft, then tossed with lime juice, pom molasses, za'atar, salt & pepper (forgot the garlic, darn it!) all to taste. Served with diced cucumber, tomato, basil, mint & lettuce - all from the garden too - and greek yogurt (dang it, forgot the green onion also!) I have more eggplants growing so expect I will make this again soon! Thanks for sharing! :)
