1 roll phyllo pastry sheets
1/2 stick butter, for brushing
for the filling:
1/2 lb ground beef
1/2 onion chopped
1 small clove garlic
salt, black pepper, oregano, chilli powder
1 tbsp olive oil
for the egg wash:
1 egg + 3/4 cup milk + a dash of black pepper whisked together
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Heat olive oil in a medium saucepan. Add the onion and garlic. Saute until tender. Add the ground beef and seasonings. Stir frequently until cooked. Remove from heat. Set aside to cool.
Unroll the phyllo dough and separate into 2 equal stacks. Working with the first stack, layer one phyllo sheet into a baking dish (fold the edges in to fit the pan), brush with melted butter, layer with another sheet, brush with butter, repeat until the first half is complete. Add all of the ground beef mixture. Top with the second set of phyllo, one layer at a time brushing with melted butter in between each sheet. Butter the top of the last sheet. Slice with a sharp knife to form squares.
Put in oven for 10 minutes. Take out and pour the egg/milk mixture all over each square. Return to the oven to continue cooking for another 20-25 minutes or until the top is crisp and golden.
