Description Edit

Beef-stuffed pastry rolls

Ingredients Edit

Directions Edit

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a skillet, add the onion and stir-fry over moderate heat for 2 minutes.
  2. Add the beef, salt and pepper and stir-fry for 5 minutes.
  3. Then add the egg and parsley and fry for 1 minute more.
  4. Cool well.
  5. Take 1 phyllo sheet and spread it out flat with a short end nearest you.
  6. Place 2 heaping tablespoons of the beef mixture 2 inches in from the short edge.
  7. Fold both long sides in toward the middle, beginning with the short end roll the phyllo to shape a packet 4 inches long and 1½ inches wide.
  8. Repeat with all the remaining phyllo sheets and stuffing.
  9. Set aside.
  10. Put the balance of the oil in a skillet over moderate/low heat and add the rolls.
  11. Brown on both sides for about 3 minutes; the low heat prevents the very thin pastry sheets from burning.
  12. Drain the rolls on paper towels for a minute.
  13. Serve warm with a squeeze of lemon juice.
