My husband helped a coworker who is from Bosnia build a deck on his house. His wife prepared them a lunch of Berek and pickled veggies. I did some research and have tried to recreate berek and this recipe is really good. I don't know if its our American taste buds but I too thought it was a little bland. I made a spice mixture of garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, pepper and a little dried oregano. I boiled the chopped potatoes for 5 minutes and added to the browned beef and onion with the spice mixture. I used 3 phyllo sheets per berek and brushed melted butter to seal. I tried the snail shape and it broke so I just rolled into a tube and put them next to each other. They were flaky and delicious. I made a spread of sour cream, dried dill and garlic powder. I love allrecipes.com because you can find a recipe that you have never tried to make before but can tweek it and make it your on that your friends and family love. Thanks, So GOOD!
