If you’re looking for a new spin on the classic beef pasties, these Spanish-inspired empanadas are sure to tickle your fancy.
The secret to these empanadas is a juicy meat filling and this version, with mined beef, onion, garlic, cumin, oregano, tomato paste and Sicilian olives, works a treat. While they look similar to a traditional English pasty, empanadas use shortcrust pasty for a dense, buttery crust and plenty of Spanish-inspired spices and flavours to create one seriously delicious filling.
These tasty empanadas are perfect for picnics and entertaining, and also make a great mid-week meal. Great served hot or cold with a side of tomato relish and a garden salad.
