Borek is another very well known dish in Turkey. Everybody has their favorite one. Fillings are made almost with every vegetable, beef or cheese. Just use your imaginations...


  • 1/2 lb. fillo dough
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 bunch of parsley
  • 2 tbs of vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp of black pepper
  • salt

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup of milk
In a medium skillet, cook ground beef with 2 tbs of vegetable oil on a medium heat. When the beef is done add chopped onion in the skillet and cook them together for 5 minutes. Turn of the heat and add chopped parsley, black pepper and salt. Set a side.
In a medium mixing bowl, mix eggs, milk and vegetable oil for sauce.
Divide fillo sheets into two equal parts. Brush bottom and sides of a baking tray ( 13" 17" inches ) with vegetable oil. Lay 2 sheets of fillo at a time, spoon the sauce over entire surface. When you are done with first half, spread the filling all over covering the whole surface. Repeat with second half of fillo sheets, spoon the sauce until it is finished.
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Bake for about 45 minutes or until nicely brown.

When it completely cools down, cut the borek into square shapes.

Kiymali borek is my favorite version. I need to try this. I've only attempted making ispanakli borek and it wasn't exactly right. :)
