Kyla’s Kitchen 🌹 Şam Börek

Hey ya’ll. As promised, Meyme is the star in this one. She is teaching us how to make Şam börek (or şan börek) originating from Mardin in Southeastern Turkey 🇹🇷 yum!! My grandparents are originally from Mardin, so there’s a lot of Arabic influence in the food we eat. Very simple recipe and easy to make. Enjoy 🙂


Uncooked flour tortillas (usually we would make the dough from scratch, but in this modern day and age, tortillas work just fine. DM if you want dough recipe).

1lb ground lamb

1 cup finely chopped onions


Black pepper

Red pepper (if you like it a little hot 🔥)


1. Combine all ingredients

2. Grease pan or griddle

3. Lay out tortillas, fold in half so there’s a crease (so you know where to put the meat), then flatten back out to a circle

4. Put a fine layer of the mixture on one half, leave about 1/2 inch on the edges, then fold in half so you have a half moon 🌙 and push down to seal. If you want to be extra fancy, cut along the edge so it’s even

5. Cook both sides until golden brown (on griddle or stove pan) about 5 min each side (flip a few times so it’s even) or until golden brown.

6. Enjoy & afiyet olsun 🙂

PS it goes really well with tomatoes and a middle eastern yogurt based drink called ayran.

As always, if you have any questions, let me know and of course if you try the recipe lmk how it turned out. Thank you for all the love.
