Egyptian Meat Pie

1 package of phyllo dough
1 lb. minced beef (or a combination of beef and lamb)
1 large onion, minced
1 bell pepper, minced
Garlic, minced, to taste
2 tablespoons melted butter or oil
Salt, freshly ground pepper, and cumin, to taste

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

In a non-stick fry pan, using a teaspoon of butter or oil, saut? the onions, pepper and garlic until soft. Add the minced meat and cook until browned, then add the spices and mix. Remove from heat and drain off excess fat.

Prepare a rectangular oven dish by lightly brushing the bottom and sides of the pan with melted butter/oil.

Layer the phyllo dough in the prepared pan, brushing every second sheet with melted butter or oil. When one-half the quantity of phyllo leaves have been layered in the pan, spread your meat filling in and continue covering with phyllo sheets, making sure to brush the last layer with a little extra melted butter or oil, to ensure a nice golden color.

Cut through the "pie" with a sharp knife, into square or diamonds.

Bake uncovered until golden. May be eaten hot or cold. Serve with a green salad. Enjoy!

Note: This dish may be made vegetarian by substituting the meat filling with a spinach/feta cheese mixture.

Kefta Kabab

1 lb. ground lean beef or lamb
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 medium onion, grated
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. freshly ground pepper
Salt to taste

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well. Let stand 1 hour to blend flavors. Preheat oven to broil. Or prepare hot coals on barbecue grill. Using about 1/4 cup mixture for each kebab, mold into a sausage shape around flat metal skewers. Moistening your hands will help mold the meat mixture onto skewers. Taper ends of sausage shapes to prevent meat from slipping off skewers during cooking. Place skewers on broiler rack 4 inches from heat source on grill or over hot coals. Turn frequently to brown evenly until meat is done as desired, 10 to 15 minutes. Makes 8 to 10 servings.
