"Pie pastry circles filled with feta cheese and a seasoned ground beef mixture for a wedding of savory sensations that is then baked to a golden finish. I make this when company comes over, and they all rave about it. It's the feta cheese that gives it a gourmet flavor, and the crust comes out very flakey and buttery. Marinated beef cuts also work well."

  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Saute onion until soft, about 2 minutes. Add beef and brown slightly; drain excess fat. Stir in tomato, garlic powder, coriander, oregano, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper and cook until meat is evenly browned, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  3. Remove one pie crust from pan and roll out on a lightly floured surface. Cut pastry into four 6 inch circles; place circles on lined cookie sheet and lightly brush with egg beat. Place 1/4 cup of feta cheese onto each circle and top with some beef mixture, leaving enough room to seal dough 'pockets'.
  4. Remove second pie crust from pan and roll out on lightly floured surface. Cut pastry into four 6 inch circles, as with first pie crust. Brush one side of each circle with egg beat and place, egg-side-down, on top of prepared pie circles. Pinch crusts together to seal around the edges. Use dough scraps to fill any holes or tears in the pie 'pockets'. Brush tops with egg beat and make a small slit in the top of each pie (to allow steam to escape).
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 to 25 minutes, or until cooked through and golden brown.

I didn't find this recipe dry at all, and actually wonder if other reviewers continued to drain the meat after putting in the tomato, getting rid of all the juice from the tomato thinking it wa...

I made this last night and we both loved it. I did as One had suggested and added canned diced tomatoes with some juice to combat the dryness. I also use Pillsbury refrigerated pie crusts an...

My husband loved this but I did make some important changes. As one reviewer suggested, I simply cut the two crusts into quarters. This saved both time and dough. Secondly, I doubled the spi...

In normal allrecipes fashion, I altered this recipe quite a bit. I doubled all the spices. I used 1 can of tomatoes (liquid included) instead of 1 tomato. I also added one beaten egg to the m...

Wonderful recipe, and easy to make it your own too. Its quick easy and tastes fantastic.

I made this as written, and it was just OK. The flavor was alright, but it was a little too time consuming for the end result.

For me, these were too much effort for the results. They turned out watery and did not showcase the feta very well.

I did not like this at all and neither did my family. I made it exactly as written except I used a little less of the cayenne than it calls for but it wasn't good. Nothing in particular, just d...

My husband and I love Greek food, and absolutely gobbled up this recipe! My hausband actually stopped eating, touched my arm and said, "Let me be clear about how much I love this!" I used 3/4 o...
