Empanada (Philippine Style)


1 lb ground beef
1 c potatoes (diced)
1/2 c seedless raisins
3 eggs yolks
1 clove garlic (minced)
salt and pepper to taste
1 sm onion (minced)


Brown ground beef. Add garlic, onion and potatoes and cook until potatoes are done. Season with salt and pepper and mix in raisins.


Mix and knead all ingredients until dough is soft. On a floured board, roll out 1/8 inch thick. Cut into 4 or 5-inch diameter circles.

Put a spoonful of meat filling in center of each circle. Fold in half, wet edges with egg white, press and seal the sides by pinching or use a fork. Brush top with remaining egg whites and bake for 20 minutes at 400 degrees F.

1. If you don't have the time to make the dough, you can buy the Betty Crocker pie crust mix or Ready Pie Crust.

2. You can also substitute the meat with chicken

3. If you want more color, add vegetables like green peas and carrots.
