Beef Burek

I love anything with flaky delish pastry, adding meat and/or cheese brings me nothing but joy (and probably explains my high cholesterol 😆) this burek recipe is probably something I wouldn't attempt normally but we made it at work and it was so yummy I wondered where it had been all my life.

I'll note that I used store-bought filo pastry rather then making the proper pastry. Hats off to all the baba's out there slaving away to stretch and pull filo from scratch but I don't have the patience to do that at this point, but if someone has a sweet old baba who would like to show me I'll never say no!!

You will need...
1 small brown onion, peeled and finely diced
400gr beef mince
1/2 cup picked parsley, chopped
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
4 Tbsp vegetable oil, plus 1 extra teaspoon for cooking
2 eggs (if using large or jumbo eggs only use one)
4 Tbsp Greek yoghurt (unflavoured, natural)
3 Tbsp water
12 sheets filo pastry
Canola spray for greasing
Lemon wedges to serve
