Curry Beef Triangles is a one of my go-to recipes for a tasty finger food when entertaining guests at my house. Besides being easy to make and so delicious, they can be made in advance and simply popped into the oven when needed.
1 pkg (1 lb) frozen phyllo pastry. thawed
1/2 cup melted butter
Curry Beef Filling
1 1/2 pounds extra lean ground beef
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp yellow curry powder (more or less to taste)
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 cup finely grated carrot
1 beaten egg
To assemble the triangles, cut sheets of phyllo into roughly 6 x 8 inch rectangles, or a size that works well with the size of sheets you are using. Using 3 of these sheets, stack them together, first brushing melted butter between the layers.
At the shorter end of the pastry, spoon a couple of tablespoons of the filling near the center edge of the pastry. Fold the two opposite edges of the phyllo to meet at the center, covering the filling. Begin rolling/folding the phyllo in a triangular shape with the filling at the center. Place the seam at the final fold on the bottom.
Bake for 20- 25 minutes at 350 degrees F until golden brown. Let sit for 10 minutes before serving.
