A Use for Yogurt That Goes Beyond Breakfast
We can thank the cuisines of Greece, Turkey, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan and India for introducing us to the brilliance of yogurt marinades. There a couple of reasons why this dairy product makes such a wonderful base: the acids in it help break down tough muscle fibers, giving the meat a soft tender texture; plus, the yogurt imparts a pleasantly sour tang. This Turkish recipe is supersimple, incorporating just lemon juice, onion, garlic, salt and pepper, along with the yogurt.
Try it with:
Lamb, chicken or beef.
