Start with the preparation of the filling. Chop the onion in small cubicles, fry them with olive oil and little salt, until shriveled. Add beef chopped into quadratics 2 x 3 cm and fry together until meat changes the color. Pour 1 cup of cold water and let the preparation simmer until the water is almost evaporated. Add 1/2 tea spoon of white pepper and 1 teaspoon of dry oregano. Mix the preparation and regulate with salt. The filling should have very little juice at the end.

Con la ayuda de un cuchillo, cortar las partes de la primera lámina que queda fuera de la tarta-pan y el lugar para la parte no cubierta del relleno. Lubricar con aceite de oliva. Continuar con la colocación de dos otros de masa-láminas. Lubrique bien la superficie superior del pastel y póngalo en el horno durante 55 minutos con 200.
