Bourekia - Ground Pork Flutes

Bourekia - Ground Pork Flutes


  • Place a deep pan over high heat and let it get very hot.
  • Add the olive oil and butter.
  • As soon as the butter melts, add the onions and sauté until they soften and turn light golden.
  • Add the ground meat and brown.
  • Add the pine nuts, salt, pepper, cinnamon and apricots.
  • Mix and sauté over medium heat, until all of the ground meat loses all of its liquid.
  • When ready, remove from heat and set aside until needed.

For the phyllo and assembly

  • In a large bowl, add the eggs and yogurt. Whisk until the mixture becomes light and fluffy.
  • Melt the butter in a saucepan or in a microwave and then add the eggs and water. Lightly season with salt and pepper. The mixture should be very runny.
  • Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.
  • Packages of phyllo dough usually contain 12 sheets of phyllo. You can make 4 bourekia or flutes in the following manner:
  • Place a sheet of phyllo dough on a clean working surface, short side facing you.
  • Add 3-4 tablespoons of the egg mixture over the phyllo and spread it evenly with a pastry brush.
  • Cover with a second sheet of phyllo.
  • Add the egg mixture in the same way as before, cover with a third sheet of phyllo and repeat the same process with the egg mixture.
  • Divide the meat filling in to 4 equal parts.
  • Spread ¼ of the filling in a straight line parallel to the long side of the phyllo and 3-4 cm from the sides and 2 cm from the top and bottom. This will keep the filling from spilling out when rolling.
  • Fold the top and bottom edges of the phyllo over, so that they lightly cover the filling and roll to create a flute or boureki.
  • Generously grease a baking pan with butter and transfer the bourekia there.
  • Repeat the exact same process to make another 3 bourekia and transfer to baking pan. Do not place them close together.
  • Brush with remaining egg mixture.
  • Bake with 35-40 minutes, until golden.
  • When ready, remove from oven and set them aside to cool so they can be cut in to pieces easier.
  • Use a serrated knife to cut in to pieces and serve.
