Sambousak Bi Lahm (Egyptian Meat Pies)
60 mins (prep 30, cooking 30)
14 ingredients
12-20 servings
A savory meat pie from Egypt. The recipe calls for ground lamb, most frequently I don't have lamb available so I use ground beef. It is still quite delicious. You can either make snack size, in which case this recipe makes 20 pastries, or a larger size (similar to the size of a Hostess fruit pie, for those who know American junk food!) in which case you will get 12. This recipe is adapted from Claudia Roden, from her "The Book of Jewish Food."
