Beef Samosa

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Marlitt

These are easy a little time consuming but worth it. Make a spicy beef packet, great for potluck or finger food snack. Brought them to a get together and everyone enjoyed them told me I could make them again. This is a recipe I got from another site made a few changes to suit what I had on hand.

The filling was really good, even my 1 year old ate two big samosas himself (we like ours with ketchup). One layer of phyllo was abit flimsy, so will use two layers next time. Thanks!
