Morning Snack: Cheesy Beef Empanada

If you’ve been turning to baking as a hobby, try whipping up a fresh batch of empanadas for your next session. Make them even more special by loading them up with flavorful corned beef and cheese. This recipe makes for filling snacks that will tide you over until your next full meal.

Cheesy Beef Empanada Ingredients

2 batches empanada dough, chilled
1 medium red onion, peeled, chopped
3 cloves garlic, peeled, chopped
1 medium tomato, chopped
200 grams ground beef

1 medium green bell pepper, seeded, chopped small
1 180-gram Danes Cheese, grated large, chilled
1 small egg, beaten for egg wash

How to cook Cheesy Beef Empanada

1 Make the crust: Use this empanada dough recipe and add 1/4 ground black pepper to the flour mixture if desired. Make two batches. Wrap each ball with plastic wrap, and chill for at least 30 minutes.

2 Make the beef filling: In a large pan over medium heat, heat oil. Add onion, garlic, and then tomatoes and saute each until just softened. Add ground beef and crumble into a single layer. Sear. Crumble and cook again until no longer pink.

3 Add Highlands Gold Corned Beef and stir to combine. Bring to a simmer and cook until almost dry. Stir in bell peppers, and remove from heat. Let cool completely. Once cooled, stir in grated cheese. Set aside.

4 Meanwhile, form the empanadas: On a lightly floured countertop, roll one batch of the empanada dough until 1/8 inch thick using a rolling pin. Cut out circles. Fill each circle with beef filling. Seal closed with egg wash. Repeat with remaining dough and filling. Chill until ready to cook.

5 When ready to cook. Heat enough oil in a deep pan over medium heat for deep frying. Slide empanadas into the hot oil, making sure not to overcrowd the pan. Fry each empanada until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve while hot.
