Beef Empanadas – One of my sisters (the one who never show interest in cooking.) Entered the living room where the family usually spends late afternoon time to watch TV and declared her decision to cook for the day! The sound of the fire brigade sirens filled our heads but we were also thrilled.
My sister went to the kitchen with a cookbook and asked that no one should disturb her. Knowing how short-tempered she can get then (she was a teenager at the time), we left her alone to concentrate on her experiment/project.
How to make Beef Empanadas
We heard noises, we heard something break, and we heard some huffing and puffing coming from the kitchen and although we were curious, we didn’t go near the kitchen.
After few minutes, the smell of caramelized onion filled the air, I then knew that my sister was serious. The curiosity got intense and drove me and my other sister to the kitchen, we dropped the patients and were ready to face the consequences!
The unusual cook was busy fighting the dough and I guess she reached a stage where she didn’t care who was with her in the kitchen. She was making beef empanadas and some empanadas were filled with feta cheese.
The three sisters were in the kitchen at that time, we helped in filling the empanadas and it was fun.
Easy Empanadas Recipe
Those empanadas were delicious, the dough was flaky and buttery, the beef was tender and perfectly seasoned. The combination was just perfect!
Today I’m sharing with you one of my favorite Latin American delight beef empanadas. These mini beef pies are great to serve in parties and they freeze well. Fill them with ground chicken or cheese.
The empanadas can be baked and fried. You don’t have to guess, the fried version is tastier but the baked version is amazing too, in this recipe we are going to bake the beef empanadas and you can serve them with your favorite dip or salsa.
Making empanadas is easy and you don’t have to go shopping for special ingredients. Why not make some today?
