These are practically beef samosas. They are made by stuffing spring roll wrappers with sauteed beef mince and seasonings. They are then deep-fried to perfection. Serve as a starter, snack or side dish.
If your local supermarket doesn't stock spring roll wrappers, you can find them in Chinese/Oriental speciality shops.
I loved the recipe. I am from africa and that is exactly how they taste. Instead of deep frying though, i fry each side of the sambusa at the time in about a half cup of olive oil then place them on towel after they are golden. it helps to keep them less oily. - 18 Aug 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was *excellent* I ended up making it with potsticker wrappers, and was duly impressed! The spice mix is wonderful and it makes just the right amount of food. You won't be disappointed. - 16 Oct 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This recipe is awesome. My husband is from Kenya and I suprised him with these and he was very impressed. I've always deep fried them as the recipe suggests, but I'm going to try the pan frying method some of you have suggested. Thanks a million! - 23 Jan 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
