Beef Empanadas

kept by8isenuf

Recipe Rundown:
Taste: Loads of flavor and spice without actually being hot spicy.
Texture: The dough is to die for. Rich and buttery, just the perfect texture. The filling is moist, cheesy, and meaty with chunks of tender potato. These empanadas are a textural heaven.
Ease: I'll admit, these empanadas require quite a bit of work. None of the steps are difficult, the dough is actually super easy to make and work with. Putting the actual empanadas together requires some patience, but you don't have to fry!
Appearance: Anything encased in pastry is mouthwatering.
Pros: So. delicious.
Cons: Takes some time (and patience).
