Spicy Ground Beef-Walnuts Börek
(Semsek - Southeastern Anatolia Region)
Bread or Pizza Dough
Spicy Ground Beef Filling:
Ground Beef, medium or regular
Onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
Red pepper flakes
Fresh parsley, chopped
Preheat the oven to 400 F (200 C).
To prepare the filling; saute the onion with butter until it is soft. Add the garlic. When the smell of garlic comes out, add the rest of the ingredients except parsley. Cook at medium-low heat until all the water evaporates while stirring.Then add the parsley, stir. Put it aside.
Generously flour your work surface. Break the dough in egg-size pieces. Flatten the dough pieces using a roller. Place some filling on one side of the circle and fold over to make a half circle. Seal the edges of the dough with your fingers to make a scalloped edge (picture). Pace the parchment paper on an oven tray and arrange on it. Brush some olive oil over the tops.
Place the tray at the middle rack of the oven. When the top turns to light golden colour, take them out and drizzle a little bit olive oil all over them. Serve while still hot with Ayran or Turkish Tea.
