Anyone else love a great meat pie? And by meat pie I could mean so very many things. Lots of options to think about and so many flavor profiles to consider. I wanted to create something that had very simple, yet flavorful ingredients and a dough you didn't have to make yourself. With a fantastic spice called Ras el Hanout and a few other ingredients, I've got a crazy delicious Moroccan-Spiced Phyllo Meat Pie to share with you today.
Ground Beef with Spices and Crunchy Phyllo Dough? This One's a No-Brainer
Let's start with the Ras el Hanout spice. This is a Moroccan spice containing (depending on the brand and the blend) cumin, coriander, cinnamon, ginger and cardamom to name a few. If you made my Pork Carnitas, you'll already have this spice on hand! I did buy my Ras el Hanout on Amazon and found the price to be very reasonable.
If you live near a Middle Eastern market they will probably carry this spice so you could get it there too. I have also occasionally seen it in with the pricier organic spices at my local grocery store.
Along with the Ras el Hanout, we're looking at just a few other key ingredients. You'll need saffron water, fresh grated ginger, onion, cilantro, cinnamon, phyllo dough (packaged) and a few kitchen staples like salt, pepper, butter and olive oil. It is very easy to make this Moroccan-spiced phyllo meat pie and the flavors are insane.
You can serve this as a dinner entree or eat it with your hands on Super Bowl Sunday. The pie yields 12 squares and they will be gobbled up very quickly on game day! This is a great recipe to double when you're feeding a large group.

There has never been a better time to get to our kitchens and make delicious homemade food. Restaurant prices continue to climb and the cost is not worth the food you're being served out there. Is it? Plan your grocery list wisely, look for deals and try to incorporate common items into multiple recipes in a week. I always cook with leftovers in mind so I have built-in lunches for a few days. It's really simple to do if you plan a little.
Cooking our meals at home gives us a chance to bond with our loved ones. To sit and simply exist with our friends and families. This is an opportunity to put down our devices and truly appreciate good food and good conversations.Print
