Leftover Turkish-Style Beef and Eggplant Stew gets a second life in this quick and easy recipe, perfect for evenings when you can hardly bear the thought of cooking. The deeply flavored stew does the heavy lifting, since it’s already packed with spices, vegetables, and tender, braised meat. All you have to do is drain any extra juices out, tuck the meat and vegetables into a warmed pita, alongside crunchy romaine, cucumbers, and fragrant mint. The thing that ties the disparate pieces together into a whole is the addictive garlic yogurt sauce. It’s amazing what a grated clove can do.
