Beef & Vege Fillo Rolls

Beef & Vege Fillo Rolls


makes 4 fillo rolls

For the onions and capsicums:

2 tbsp olive oil

3 red onions, peeled, halved and thinly sliced

2 capsicums, thinly sliced

salt and pepper to season


For the mushrooms:

50g butter

250g mushrooms

1tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped

salt and pepper to season


500g sirloin, cut into thin strips

1 cup grated mozzarella

12 sheets Antoniou Fillo Thick Pastry (or 16 sheets regular fillo pastry)

olive oil spray

1 egg, lightly beaten

sesame seeds

mustard to serve



Heat the olive oil in a pan on a low/medium heat.  Add the onions and capsicums, season with salt and pepper and cook slowly until golden and cooked through. (This should take approx. 15 mins.) Place the cooked onions and capsicums in a bowl and set aside.

Heat the butter in the same pan over a high heat, add the mushrooms, salt and pepper and cook until golden brown. Once the mushrooms have reduced by half, stir in the parsley and place the mixture in another bowl and set aside.

Heat a little extra olive oil in the same pan and cook the thinly cut sirloin very quickly, making sure not to over cook it.

Preheat your oven to 180 deg C and line a tray with baking paper.

To make the rolls lay one sheet of fillo with the longer edge facing you and spray with olive oil. Repeat this process with 2 more sheets until you have a stack of 3 sheets.

Start by placing a quarter of the onion/capsicum mixture in an even line (measuring approx. 15cm) in the centre of the fillo. 

Add one quarter of the meat on top, followed by a quarter of the mushrooms and then top with some  grated cheese.

Fold the shorter edges in over the filling and proceed to roll up from the long side to enclose the layered mixture forming a roll.

Brush the seams with a little egg to ensure it is sealed. Repeat with the remaining fillo and ingredients until you have 4 rolls.

Brush each roll with beaten egg, sprinkle with sesame seed and bake for 25 mins until golden.

Allow to cool for 10 mins. before serving with some mustard.
