Mild Harissa Beef Tacos

with Tomato Salsa & Yoghurt Drizzle

Read more

Harissa, the chilli-based condiment originating from North Africa varies in heat from mild to firey. Our version is definitely on the mild side, with a gentle heat plus warming spices. It's the ideal sauce to complement beef, and with a fresh cherry tomato salsa plus a creamy yoghurt drizzle, these tacos are a burst of flavour in every bite!
