One of the most well-known traditional Tunisian recipes are the briks. There are many varieties of the briks depending on the pastry or the stuffing. I suggest “Brik Danouni”; beef-stuffed turnovers, oven-baked or fried, are usually presented as starters or appetizers.


  • Stuffing

  • Mix well the semolina, the flour and salt with the melted butter.
  • Add warm water progressively and knead.
  • When the dough becomes satin smooth let it rest for 30 minutes.
  • In the meanwhile, cook the ground beef with the chopped onions with a table spoon of vegetable oil then add the rest of the stuffing ingredients and keep.
  • Roll out the dough and form circles.
  • Garnish the circles with the stuffing and fold the edges.
  • Deep fry the briks.
