How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 400
  • Brown ground beef in large saute pan over medium heat
  • Add onion, garlic, paprika, thyme, black pepper, and salt
  • Stir together, and then add jalapeno
  • Remove from heat, and add the bread crumbs and the beef broth
  • Stir well to combine and set aside to cool completely.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, curry powder and water. Set aside.
  • On a work surface, flatten the pie crusts and cut out 3-inch rounds using a cookie cutter
  • Add a hearty tablespoon of the beef mixture onto each round
  • Fold over and press the edges with your fingers
  • Crimp the edges with a fork
  • Transfer the patties to a baking sheet and brush the tops with the egg mixture
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes
  • Note:....The changes I made were
  • 1. Didn't use pie crust, I used frozen empanada dough
  • 2. Didn't use thyme
  • 3 Added some salsa to the mix
  • 4. Added cheddar cheese to the pie before sealing
  • 5. Didn't use curry powder in the egg wash...Used Cayenne pepper

    dollhead ate it and said... is how I made it: I used ground turkey, and the spices listed in original recipe and cooked meat & spices as directed. I used pre-made pie crust, but didn't cut out individual hand pies-just rolled out 1 crust, slapped the meat mix on, brushed edge with curried eggwash-->(dosed it up with grated cheddar for the cheese-a-holics here) rolled out other crust and slapped it on top, cutting a couple of vent holes and sealing edges with a fork & baked as directed. Man, oh, man was this good! Gave some to a neighbor and her hubby and they flipped over it too.
    I love curry but I think you are right about the thyme though-next time I am gonna try it your way. Here is another 5 forks!

    Mmmm... Wynne, these sound good! I like your changes/adds too. I've never seen empanada dough, but I'm going to the store today. I attempted empanadas a couple weeks ago and they said use pie dough. Didn't really care for the heaviness - threw out the last one. Is empanada dough lighter? ;')
