Prep and cook the lamb
- Peel and coarsely chop enough onion to measure ½ cup [1 cup].
- On a cutting board, using a rolling pin or the bottom of a small pot or bowl, lightly crush the cumin seeds.
- Cut a small corner from the ground lamb packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.

- Cut the tomatoes in half.
- Trim the root end from the lettuce; remove 4  of the largest outer leaves for the lamb and save the remaining lettuce for another use.
