Welcome to my kitchen!

Let's make some tasty, easy food

Börek - Ground Meat and Leek-Filled Pastry

Tuesday, May 31, 2011

For the pastry, I used 3 sheets of yufka. The filling consisted of:
- 1 lb leeks
- 1 medium yellow onion
- 1 lb ground meat
- 1 tsp sweet paprika
- 1/2 bunch parsley
- salt and pepper to taste

Heat 2 tbsp of olive oil over medium heat, then add the ground meat. Allow it to cook and add the sweet paprika

Chop the leeks and onion, add them to the meat, then add the chopped parsley

Allow to cook until lightly browned, then set aside to cool.

Take one sheet of yufka and place it, folded, in a 9x13-inch buttered deep baking dish. Pour over half of the meat filling

Cover with the second sheet of pastry (folded in half) and spread on the other half of the filling, then add the third sheet of pastry, also folded in half.
Beat two eggs with 1/2 lb sour cream and 1 cup milk. Fold the edges of the yufka sheets over the top, then pour the mixture all over the börek and sprinkle it with black sesame seeds

Bake in the preheated oven (350F) until golden (about 40-45 minutes)

and the absolute last piece

Arata delicios, sunt curioasa si eu daca e pe gustul meu placinta aceasta, banuiesc ca daca esti fan lasagna, esti fan placinta, nu? :) seamana destul de tare! Pupici!

Sunt convinsa ca iti va placea foarte mult placinta asta, mai ales ca poti inlocui carnea cu branza amestecata cu spanac (sau patrunjel proaspat tocat), de exemplu. Seamana cu lasagna, dar nu rasare prea mult, vei vedea! :)) Multumesc pentru vizita si pupici!

Kirsten, I am very sorry, but I really don't speak German! I hope that you liked the recipe though :))

Raquel, I don't know where you live, so I can't tell you whether you can find yufka in the grocery store. Right here in NY I found it at a store named "Amish market". However, I thank you so much for following and I hope to see you again soon!
