How to make it

  • Disolve the bread yeast in the warm water, add salt.
  • Mix this with the olive oil mixed with the paprika.
  • Add this liquid to the flour and knead until soft. Add more flour if necessary.
  • Let dough stand in warm place until doble in size.
  • Meanwhile, in a little bit of olive oil, cook the onion in small pieces until soft but not brown. Add meat and cook for 5 minutes. Add a pinch of paprika and let stand.
  • One the dough is ready , divide it in two parts.
  • Roll dough into a rectangle. Place in a greased oven-tray.
  • Cover the dough with the meat and onion mixture.
  • Roll the other part of the dough into another rectangle.
  • Cover the filling and seal all around with your fingers or with a fork, to avoid filling from coming out.
  • Make a litle "window" in the middle of the empanada that will act as a chimney.
  • Decorate with the leftovers of the dough.
  • Cook in oven 170º C, about 1 hour until golden brown.

    My parents are originally from Gallicia, Spain. My mom is deceased but made the best ever Empanada Gallega. I have ben trying to find a similar version but have been unsuccessful. Maybe this one will be it. She would make them with tuna, very thin beef, cod fish, or pork. The picture looks like it and the process looks to be it. I will try it and let you all know.

    Sheperdrescue: thanks for your comment. For smaller servings, it will have to cook for about 20-25 minutes. I think its enough.

    Very nice recipe! If you were to make smaller individual servings, any idea on how long to cook them?

    Imorente: con un poquito de cebolla pochada y un par de latas grandes de atún. Añades unos huevos picaditos y listo.

    Hola Pilar. Qué buena pinta tiene tu empanada! Do you have a recipe or any suggestions to replace the meat with a tuna filling?
