So I had to 3 goals this weekend.
1) Sleep in (I did!)
2) Get a little video game time in (yep!)
3) Make empanadas (check!)
These little guys take a lot more time to make than I thought! I even did a lot of the prep work during the day. But the dough and assembling took most of my time. In the morning, I put together a cilantro pebre, so it would have the day to marinate.
I was a little wary of this cause of my dislike for raw green onion and cilantro (not all the time, in certain things I like them), and this was pretty much two items, but I was wrong! This was fantastic! I really really like it and I think it was the perfect addition.
- 1 bunch cilantro, chopped
- 1 bunch green onion (including green tops), chopped
- 2 green chiles, chopped
- 1-2 tablespoons white vinegar
- 2 tablespoons of oil
- salt and pepper
- splash or so of water to make some juice
Chop it all up and mix together.
Then I made the beef filling, so it was have time to cool.
Ground Beef, Onion, Oil, Cumin, Paprika, Salt, Pepper
Beef filling, with a wedge of a hard boiled egg and 3 black olive slices.
So I think I messed up the dough, I am not good with dough. I think I’ve done it well like once out of 6 different times now. I think it’s suppose to be a little flaky…mine was not. Oh well, it was still delicious! =)
