Phyllo Meat Pie

Phyllo pastry is one of those things I often buy from the supermarket. They are great for quick and easy meals like the Salmon Phyllo Pie or Chicken Mushroom & Spinach Pie … They are also delicious for sweet treats like Baklava. Everytime I have mince on the menu, I end up making some Spag Bolognese and then decided couple of weekends ago to make a Mince Phyllo pie and it was the best decision ever! It was gobbled up real fast and I should say it was real easy to make. For the parents reading, it went down like a treat for my 4 year old.

And oh before I forget … you need to butter the phyllo for it to turn out real well!

  • Cooking Time: 45 mins

Ingredients

500 gms ground beef
1 medicum sized onion diced
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp all spice powder
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup melted butter
1 egg
12 sheets of phyllo

Steps

  1. Preheat the oven to 200c
  2. Saute the onions in some oil. Once softened add the garlic powder and mince.
  3. As the mince browns up and cooks, add the all spice powder, along with some salt and pepper. Once cooked, drain the fat and transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  4. I used 12 sheets of phyllo. Butter your baking dish and lay four sheets of phyllo buttering between each layer.
  5. Add the mince filling, and then another 4 sheets of phyllo, again buttering between each sheet.
  6. Add the mince mixture and top it off with the sheets of phyllo buttering each sheet.
  7. Brush the top layer with a beaten egg, and cut the phyllo into squares and place in the oven. You need to do this before its cooked.
  8. Bake till it is golden brown and it will be crispy to touch.
  9. Serve immediately with some tomato sauce or tzatziki
