My great greek Yia Yia - - Her recipes are loose guidelines at best. There were many pinches, dashes and splashes. This is her Bourekia. Enjoy!

How to Make Great Yia Yia Manutes' Bourekia

Step-by-Step

  1. Brown beef & pork in a skillet or frying pan using a small amount of oil.
  2. Add 1/2 tin of tomato paste
  3. Add 1/2 cup grated (or crumbled if you're using feta) cheese
  4. Add salt, pepper, onion & garlic salt to taste (This is where the dashes and the pinches come in.)
  5. Beat one egg and add to meat mixture when it has cooked and cooled.
  6. cut phyllo dough length wise to create two long pieces.
  7. brush dough strips with butter
  8. add meat mixture and roll into cigar shaped rolls. (It is sometimes easier to place phyllo strips on wax paper or parchment paper since they are so thin and tear easily.)
  9. Bake until golden brown.(roughly 30 minutes)
