- Add the bouillon cube and beer.
- Sauté for 15-20 minutes, until the mixture dries out.

- Brush a 25x35 cm baking pan with olive oil.
- Spread 2 sheets of phyllo dough in the baking pan. Each one should cover half of the pan.
- Drizzle with some olive oil. If using a pastry brush do not let it touch the pastry.
- Repeat the same process with half of the sheets of phyllo dough to create the bottom crust of the pie. Drizzle each sheet with olive oil when adding.
- Add the filling and spread evenly in the baking pan.
- Cover with the remaining sheets of phyllo dough in the same way as before, drizzling each sheet with olive oil.
- Roll the sides of the phyllo inward, creating a border. Drizzle the border and surface of the phyllo.
- Score the pie in to 12 pieces and place on the highest rack in the oven.
- Bake for 45-50 minutes, until golden and crunchy.
- When ready, remove from oven and allow it to cool for 10 minutes before cutting in to it.
