Empanadas are a tasty and easy-to-make pastry dish that can be served for breakfast, lunch, or dinner and are even better when prepared Dominican Style...



Cook the ground beef with garlic salt, strain the oil. Set aside.


In a separate cooking pan, add olive oil to coat the pan and add all of the remaining ingredients.


Cook over medium/low heat for about 10 minutes.


Add the cooked burger meat to the sautéed ingredients. Cook for an additional five minutes.


Separate pastry discs and lay flat on wax paper sprayed with a dash of Pam, to keep the dough from sticking.


Add tablespoons of the beef mixture to each pastry disc and fold in half.

With a fork make edges sealed by pushing the edges together.


The empanadas should be fried in a deep fryer at about 380 degrees or in a pan with oil.


When the empanadas are a nice golden color, they are done. I believe they are best served with hot sauce.
