Spiced Moroccan Lamb Filo Pie
Lamb and filo pastry go very well together – no need to fear the filo as it is just torn into strips and popped on top of the filling with really stunning end results!
 
 

5-6 sheets Jus-Rol™ Filo Pastry Sheets

1 tbsp oil

1 onion, diced

500g lamb, minced

1tsp cinnamon

1tsp mixed spice

½ tsp ground cumin

100ml water or lamb stock

75g dried apricots, diced

Salt & black pepper

50g butter, melted

50g pine nuts

Handful of fresh parsley, roughly chopped

Follow pastry preparation instructions. Preheat oven to 190°C (170°C for fan assisted ovens) Gas M5.

Heat oil in a pan and gently sauté the onion, then add the lamb and brown.

Once the lamb is browned, stir in the spices and add the water.

Continue cooking over a medium to low heat for approx. 15 minutes until water has been absorbed, stir in the apricots and season to taste.

With a slotted spoon, remove meat mixture, place on kitchen paper to drain and cool.

Return pan to medium heat, add the pine nuts and allow to brown slightly, stirring all the while, remove from pan and allow to cool.

Lightly brush one sheet of filo pastry with melted butter and place in ovenproof dish.

Allow the excess pastry to hang over the sides, then repeat with two more sheets, placing them so that the dish base and sides are covered and any excess is draping over edge.

Combine the pine nuts with the meat and a good handful of chopped parsley, put on top of the pastry, spreading it evenly over the base.

Fold in the excess pastry so that it starts to cover the filling, brush again lightly with melted butter.

Now lightly brush a further filo sheet and tear it down its length into strips.

Allow the strips to drape or fold over the top of the pie in ‘waves’.

Continue with one further filo sheet, brush top very lightly again and bake for 15-20 minutes or until pastry is golden.

Serve and sprinkle with some parsley if desired
