Ras-el-Hanut Phyllo Dough Meat Pockets

One of my favorite spice blends is definitely Ras-el-Hanut. A Moroccan spice blend composed from 30 different spices that are full of body and flavor that will give any protein you use a very cool and different flavor your palate is used to. You can pick it up at any fresh spices store or packaged in certain shops. So here is a recipe that I came up with, how to use this spice blend to the max, and keep it simple as well:

Ingredients

  • 1\2 Kilo ground beef or lamb or chicken
  • 1 Onion Diced small
  • 2 Cloves garlic, smashed
  • 2 tbls minced corriander
  • 1-3 tsp of Ras-el-Hanut spice blend depends on how strong you like it
  • Salt&Pepper for flavor
  • 1 Package of Phyllo Dough
  • oil for frying
  • 1 egg for coating
  • topping of choice: Dried parsley, sesame seeds,

Recipe

  1. Place a frying pan on a high heat and saute the onions and garlic until translucent and add the ground meat and brown.
  2. Add the spices and herbs to the meat mixture and drain the excess liquid from the pan and fix the seasoning if necessary.
  3. While the meat mixture cools down, turn your oven on 175c.
  4. Take the phyllo out of the package and follow the instructions on the package on how to fold the dough into the shape you’d like your pastry.
  5. Brush and seal the dough with the egg wash, then coat the dough with the egg and add topping of choice.
  6. Bake until golden brown.

Serve hot with a tahini dipping sauce. Enjoy!
