Pork and Broccoli Phyllo
This Greek-inspired layered casserole, made with phyllo dough, pork and broccoli, can be served as an entrée, or cut in small portions, as an appetizer.
1 pound roasted (fully cooked) boneless pork loin, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 (12-ounce) bag frozen broccoli florets, thawed
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup diced onion
1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/8 teaspoon white pepper
1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch, dissolved in 2 tablespoons water
4 tablespoons dry bread crumbs
8 sheets phyllo dough, thawed
Nonstick vegetable baking spray
- Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).
- Place pork and broccoli in a medium-size mixing bowl, set aside.
- In small saucepan, bring broth to a boil; lower heat to a simmer, add onion and bell pepper and simmer 10 minutes. Stir in mustard, pepper and cornstarch mixture, bring to a boil, stirring. Remove from heat and mix with pork and broccoli; set aside.
- Spray a 2-quart, 11 x 7-inch baking dish with nonstick spray; line with one sheet of phyllo and sprinkle with one tablespoon bread crumbs. Repeat this 3 times; and fill with meat mixture. Cover the meat with phyllo, layering the same way as the bottom of the dish. Tuck any overlapping phyllo dough gently down the inner sides of the baking dish.
- Bake until phyllo is brown and filling hot, about 25 minutes. Cut into squares to serve.
Makes 6 servings.
Tip: If desired, use sheets of phyllo to create individual triangles. Omit bread crumbs.
