  • The tip for making a good dough for “ciborek” is its consistency should be hard.
  • Divide your dough in walnut size equal pieces (approximately 20-22 pcs.) cover them with a moist towel and rest your dough for about 30 minutes.
  • You can also make your dough in your stand mixer with a dough hook.

The ground beef filling:

Preparation:

  • Take your dough pieces and roll them into 8 inches diameter circles with your rolling pin.
  • Take your circles one by one, spread a thin line of your ground beef filling along the half of your dough. (as you can see in below video)
  • Close the other half on another and trim the side with your pastry wheel so your dough stick together.
  • Heat vegetable oil in a large saucepan and fry your “ciborek”s until they turn gold.
  • If you pour from the hot oil with a spoon on your fried thin dough with ground beef filling while frying they will puff up as in the pictures.

  • Hi, Chef!
    It looks wonderful – and I am starting with preparations… Though, since the dough quantity is huge – I wonder if I can freeze the dough rests; is it possible, without any changes after the dough will be again out of the freezer, ready for the next session?
    Thanks for your efforts!

    • Hello Anat,

      Thank you very much for trying our recipes.
      Freezing only the dough won’t be a good option because the dough can’t be stable after unfreezing but you can make all your borek in one session and freeze the boreks that you won’t eat right away.
      I hope you enjoy!

  • Do you cook the meat before you stuff the dough.

    • Hello,
      You don’t have to cook the meat beforehand.
      The feature of this dish is that the meat is put raw.

    Fantastic recipe. I have also adapted with cheese and onion which came out more favourably.
