How to cook: Cretan Meat Pie

You need:
  • Lamb
  • Phyllo pastry
  • 1 Onion (diced)
  • Garlic
  • Cheese
  • Nutmeg
  • Olive oil
  • Oregano
  • Salt
  • Pepper
Boil some lamb (or any meat you want) in lightly salted water. Cut the meat up into little pieces. Season to your liking (salt, pepper, oregano, etc...) Add sautιed onions and garlic if desired. Mix the meat with various cheeses (swiss, mozzarella, kefalograviera) Spread the mixture onto oiled up phyllo (you can make your own or buy ready made but ALWAYS USE OLIVE OIL as this is a Cretan recipe) Roll up the phyllo taking care to tuck in the sides as you go. Bake it until it is golden brown - about 1/2 hour.
