How to Make Samboosek

Samboosek is a wonderful appetizer that is traditionally served during the meza portion of the meal. It is traditionally made with phyllo dough or a thin dough pastry. It can either be stuffed with ground meat or cheese.

Total Time: 35 minutes
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Yield: 4
Level: Easy


1 lb ground beef
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1 tbs DedeMed's Seven Spices
6 tbs olive oil
2 cups melted butter
1 package phyllo dough
1 tsp salt


In a preheated pan, on medium heat, add the 3 tbs olive oil and then the onions. Cook for 3-5 minutes then remove from pan into a plate. Add the ground beef to the same pan on medium heat and add 3 tbs olive oil, seven spices and add 1 tsp salt and and cook until brown, about 5 minutes. Add the onions back to the beef and cook for 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and place mixture into a plate to let cool. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Prepare the phyllo dough by laying out a few layers, start with 3 layers and butter each layer. Cut the layered phyllo into 3 inch strips and place about 2 tbs of the meat filling at the end of each strip. Follow the video instructions on how to fold the phyllo into triangles. Place the samboosek onto a nonstick pan and brush with melted butter. Bake for 10 minutes until golden brown. Let rest of 5 minutes and then serve alone or with yogurt or a Dede’s spicy harrisa sauce.
