  • Cook beef (or lamb) in a large skillet over medium heat, crumbling with a wooden spoon, for 5 minutes. Add half the garlic; cook, stirring often, until the meat is no longer pink, 2 to 4 minutes more. Add cumin, marjoram, allspice and 1/4 teaspoon salt; cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Remove from heat.

  • Mash the remaining garlic and 1/4 teaspoon salt with a fork to form a paste. Mix it with yogurt, lemon juice and pepper in a small bowl.
