Introduction: Beef & Cabbage Pastry

About: Hi! I am Klinong, that is how my loving family calls me, except my brother, he calls me Krinyol, as I have silly curly hair :) I love Instructables for forever now, especially for the contests ha-ha!, but I …

This pastry is perfect to be served with pickles!

Step 1: Filling

  • lean ground beef 400-500 grams
  • Hungarian paprika powder
  • whole oregano
  • salt
  • steak spice (I used Encore Gourmet)
  • Hungarian Vegeta seasoning (available at European specialty stores and/or major grocery stores or online)
  • 1 small plate shredded cabbage
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 2 medium potatoes, small cubed
  • 1 big carrot, small cubed
  • ground black pepper
  • 1-2 tbsp of vegetable oil
  • ground turmeric

  • Heat the oil, saute onion, add in ground beef, stir until beef half cooked (turn in color evenly)
  • Add in vegetables, mix well, cover with top, simmer for 5 minutes
  • Add in the rest of the ingredients, a pinch each, or as desire.
  • Mix well, simmer for another 5-10 minutes on lower heat.
  • Set aside, cool.
  • Meanwhile, thaw frozen phyllo sheets.

Step 2: Pastry on Baking Pan

  • melted margarine
  • 4-5 sheets of phyllo pastry

  • Grease generously a baking pan (I used pyrex). Place one phyllo (folded), open the inside, brush with melted margarine, fold it back, pour in cooled filling.
  • Get another phyllo sheets, brush evenly with melted margarine, fold in two, place on top of filling, brush the top with margarine again.
  • Repeat this step until using 3-4 more phyllo sheets.
  • Bake at 375 F for 5 minutes, then lower the heat to 300-350 F and bake for another 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Serve with salad, sauces, or pickles as you desire.

Step 3: Rolled Pastry

Another way of making the pastry instead on baking pan is to roll

2 phyllo stack together, place filling and brush sides of phyllo with melted margarine, then roll

Bake as stated on the previous step :)
