1 bunch lettuce, cut into ¼-inch strips
1 yellow onion, diced
2-3 scallions, white and light green parts, cut thin (optional)
½ lb ground beef
3 tomatoes, skinned and diced (canned and diced tomatoes are OK, too)
1 bunch fresh dill, minced
2 Tablespoons unsalted butter (or vegetable oil)
1 Tablespoon tomato paste
- Cook the onions in butter (or vegetable oil) until translucent. Add the ground beef and cook 5 minutes.
