Lebanese Spiced Beef Rolls

Ever made spring rolls before?  Now’s the time, so easy and really delicious, especially with this big red blend.

You can shallow fry so no need for buckets of oil, these are such a tasty accompaniment to this bold red.

Recipe

  • INGREDIENTS
  • Spring Roll Pastry – ideally but you could use Filo or Won Ton Wrappers. Go to your asian supermarket and they are probably in the frozen section – much easier to ask!
  • 250g of minced beef
  • 1 medium onion
  • Handful of pine nuts
  • Vegetable oil
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Lebanese 7 spices – ground black pepper, paprika, ground cumin, ground coriander, ground cloves, ground nutmeg, and ground cinnamon.
  • 1 tbsp flour and 1 tbsp water for the paste

Make the mince filling

  • Heat 2 tbsp oil in a frying pan and add the pine nuts when hot.  Keep them moving as once they start to toast they can easily burn.  Remove when golden brown, along with the juices and set aside.
  • Finely chop the onion.
  • Fry the mince until no longer pink.
  • Add the onion, seasoning and spices (I didn’t have a couple of the spices so used some ras-el-hanout and a few others – go easy on the ground cloves!)
  • Add the pine nuts and juice and fry for another 5 mins max – don’t let the meat get too dry.  Take off the heat and set aside.

Now for the fun bit!

  • Make sure your spring roll wrappers/pastry is defrosted and at room temperature.  Lay a square as a diamond in front of you.
  • Mix equal quantities flour and water in a bowl to make a smooth paste – you don’t need much of this.
  • Place a heaped teaspoon of mince about a quarter of the way up and spread it widthways to 3/4 of the width.
  • Fold over the bottom of the diamond and tuck under the mince and roll until you have rolled just past half way.
  • Dab a little past on each side the the top point of the pastry.
  • Fold in both sides and then roll until the point has stuck onto the roll.
  • And repeat!

SEE VIDEO BELOW FOR DEMO.

  • To cook put a couple of tbsp of oil in a frying pan, heat on a medium heat.  Fry the rolls in batches and remove when golden all over (only a couple of mins).
  • Rest on paper towel.
  • Serve hot.
