What are the tips to make the best layered ground meat pie?
- Your meal must be served hot and fresh, the flatbread that meets with ground meat mixture long before the service becomes very soft.
- To avoid this situation, you can prepare the flatbreads and the filling in advance, heat only the minced meat mixture before serving and bring it together with the flatbreads.
- Since the dough is leavened, it will ferment more quickly if you use water and milk in a warm temperature.
The ultimate tip to make Layered Ground Meat Pie:
- You really want to try this dish but don’t have enough time or confidence to make your flatbread from scratch? You can always use store-bought flour tortillas (or better if you can find lavash bread) instead of Turkish flatbreads. Just cook your ground meat filling and spread between your flour tortillas. Of course, it won’t be original, but it will almost be as tasty as the original.
