Greek Empire is the seasoning blend that gives this recipe a strong sense of place. Garlic, oregano, cumin, paprika… they conspire with sunny ingredients to create an ambience that sets you down around the Mediterranean basin. It all happens fast! Brown up ground beef, and love-bomb it with veggies: zucchini, tomatoes, roasted pepper and leafy greens. Get a simple salad going on the side, and cap both elements with cubes of feta.

Start the skillet
Thinly slice the garlic. Medium-dice the tomatoes and zucchini. In a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the beef, zucchini and garlic; season with ½ the spices and S&P. Cook, breaking up the meat, 3 to 4 min., until partially cooked. Add ⅔ of the tomatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 3 min., until the tomatoes begin to soften and the beef* is cooked through.
