Step 1

Heat lard in large cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add chopped onion and cook 5 minutes. Scrape onion to border of the skillet, making a circle in the center. Add the ground beef and let it sear, 3 minutes, before flipping, then let it cook another 3 minutes on the opposite side before breaking up with a wooden spoon and bringing the onions into the mixture. Continue cooking until beef is browned, about 10 minutes. Add shredded carrots, olives, oregano, garlic, turmeric, and salt. Drizzle the tamarind and stir. Continue cooking 5-8 minutes to let flavors combine. Check seasonings and finish with a squeeze of lime juice.
While the filling cooks, mix together the avocado, onions, lime zest and juice. Season with salt to taste. Set aside.
Fill plantain tortillas with prepared beef taco filling, top with a few slices of green cabbage and guacamole.
Tilt your head to the side and have at it! There is something mighty satisfying about these tacos…
