Cost: About 20 Shekels (about 6 US Dollars)
½ kilo puff pastry (I use store bought)
1 egg yolk
For the filling:
250 g ground beef
½ onion finely chopped
Salt and pepper
Fry the onion in a pan with a bit of oil until they have softened and browned a bit. Add the meat and cook until done. Add salt and pepper.
Cut out the puff pastry into 2 about A4 sized pieces. Add half of filling to each piece. Place the filling on one side of the piece so that it covers about half (leave about a centimeter on the sides free). Take the side with no filling and fold it over the filling. Crimp the edges with the tines of a fork.
Whisk together the egg yolk and use a pastry brush to brush it onto the surface of each boureka.
Bake in oven – 200 degrees Celsius for about 20 minutes or until the pastry is golden.
