Shish Barak Recipe by Jessica Moufarrej
Mix all the dough ingredients together and let the dough rest of 2 hours
Saute the onions with the olive oil, then add the beef with salt, pepper and cinnamon until the meat turns brown.
Add pine nuts and parsley
flatten the dough and cut into small disks
Place the meat into each of the pieces of dough and fold the edges
Place the dumplings in the oven until they turn golden brown
Cook the rice for the yogurt, and when ready combine all the ingredients for the stew and set over stove-top to warm up. Add the dumplings when they are done from the oven.
- The dumplings can be frozen after they are folded
- Instead of setting them to bake in the oven, they can alternately be placed in the yogurt strew immediately and cooked over stove-top
