Bourek (Meat Filled Pastry)
40 mins (prep 20, cooking 20)
10 ingredients

This is an Algerian appetizer. Traditionally ground lamb is used for the filling but you can also try ground beef or turkey or even one time I did spinach and feta. You can also adjust the seasonings. I think phyllo dough is a pain to work with and was told to try it with an asian type wrapper. I tried but it didn't come out as well. You can fold the dough around it pretty much any way you want. Just do them all the same so they cook in the same amount of time.
