Meat Phyllo Roll

You will need: Parsley, cilantro, salt, black pepper, dill, red peppers, 1 pound lean ground beef, 1 medium tomato, 1 small onion, Greek yogurt,

Instructions:

  • 1 cup mixed fresh herbs parsley, cilantro, and dill
  • 1 medium tomato deseeded and finally chopped
  • 1 small red pepper diced
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • In a mixing bowl add a small chopped onion to the ground beef
  • In a mixing bowl add a small chopped onion to the ground beef add 2/3 of red pepper, fresh herbs, and tomato to the bowl. Reserve the rest for garnishing at the end
  • Season with salt and black pepper to taste, then mix everything together until well combined
  • Add 2/3 cup plain yogurt. I like to use Greek yogurt for this recipe
  • Mix the yogurt in until it’s well incorporated. If you have time, cover the bowl with plastic and refrigerate it for an hour for all the flavors to marinate
  • Now unpack your Phyllo dough. You will need eight full sheets for this recipe. Melt 3 tablespoons of butter and mix it with 2 tablespoons oil and let’s get rolling!
  • Drizzle and brush each sheet generously with the butter oil mixture
  • Repeat brushing and stacking the eight sheets on top of each other
  • When you reach the eighth sheet, transfer the meat filling and spread it evenly on top
  • Now carefully roll the Phyllo into a log
  • Brush it generously with the butter oil mixture
  • Now let’s prepare the egg wash
  • Beat one egg with 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Add 3 tablespoons of yogurt and mix it with the beaten egg
  • Add 1/2 cup of milk and mix
  • Brush the Phyllo roll with the egg wash
  • Drizzle the remaining butter on top and brush it to spread it evenly to cover the top and sides of the roll
  • If you’d like you can sprinkle some sesame seeds on top
  • Bake in a 350°F preheated oven for 45 minutes or until the Phyllo roll is light golden in color
  • Once out of the oven garnish the top with the diced tomato, red pepper and fresh herbs
  • Enjoy!
