WSVN — As our special Bite series continues tonight, 7’s Vanessa Medina is in the kitchen creating a family favorite. Lamb is on the menu, so let’s grab a bite.

The Chef: Vanessa Medina
The Dish: Lamb Tacos

2 lbs. ground lamb
salt and pepper to taste
2 Tbs. chopped garlic (to taste)
8 flour tortillas
arugula and sriracha sauce to garnish
Tzatziki Sauce
1 pint thick yogurt
1 cucumber, peeled, grated, salted lightly and squeezed to remove liquid
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1⁄3 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon minced fresh mint
 salt and pepper to taste

Method of Preparation:
-Start by putting ground lamb in a non-stick pan. Brown it on low. Add black pepper, salt and chopped garlic.

– For the Tzatziki sauce, grate a cucumber, then wrap it in a paper towel and drain it.

– Put it in a bowl, add plain Greek yogurt and blend. Add salt and pepper to taste, olive oil and more chopped garlic. Vanessa also adds a handful of chopped mint. Mix well and set aside.

– When the lamb is cooking, drain some of the liquid to help it brown more quickly.

– Heat flour tortillas on the stovetop. When they’re brown and puffy, it’s time to plate!

To Plate:
– Vanessa plates by putting Tzatziki sauce on a tortilla, then adds the lamb and tops it with arugula and sriracha sauce.
