Image

Ingredients (serves 8)
    For the filling:
  • 1½ - 2 kg Pork meat in pieces
  • 1 glass white dry wine
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 minced onion
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 cube beef broth
  • 250gr Kaseri cheese in cubes
  • Oil to sauté the ingredients
  • Thyme, salt and pepper
    For the 'nests':
  • 50gr Butter
  • 2 Phyllo pastry

Preparation method

Sauté the onion and the garlic with olive oil and add the meat. When brown add the pepper. Add the wine and the beef broth (dissolved in a wine glass filled with water), salt and pepper, the thyme and some water. Simmer on low heat.

When the meat is cooked, add traditional Kaseri cheese, which you have diced, and serve in ‘nests’ made of phyllo pastry.

For the nests: Spread melted butter on 2 phyllo. Cut each phyllo in 8 double squares. Place them on individual pans and bake in medium heat until brown. After removing from the oven, fill the nests with the meat and cook again for a few minutes, until the kaseri turns golden brown.

Cooking time: 60 minutes
