Beef Goulash – Fillo Pastry

Amira's own recipe. Very tasty and perfect for kids and adults.


½ kg mince meat
1 medium onion chopped
salt and pepper
1 packet Fillo sheets
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 cup milk
1 large egg


In a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, add the butter then toss in the diced onion, stirring for 2-3 minutes until tender.

Add the mince meat, salt and pepper and cook until browned, set aside.

Brush- or spray- an oven safe dish with butter, take 1 sheets of Fillo fold in half and lay flat on your dish, then brush with butter.

Continue layering the Fillo sheets at a time and brushing them with butter until you are done with half the package.

Add the minced meat. If you want you can cook any desired vegetables with the meat for added benefits such as, celery, peas, corn, small cur green beans.... etc.

After adding the meat, continue the same process layering and brushing until you are done with the whole package.

Cut into squares, then beat an egg into the milk, then carefully pour into the dish, tilt the dish in all directions so the milk mixture will spread evenly.

Bake in a 200C pre heated oven for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown.
Cool slightly, then serve warm. Enjoy!!!
