Empanadas for school
I started on the filling, making a sofrito of carrots, onion, green pepper, celery, garlic, and shallots
and cooked it down.
Then we cooked some ground beef, browned in a pan with garlic, salt and a pinch of sugar.
The meat and sofrito was combined, chopped cilantro and oregano added, then on to the assembly
a couple of spoons of filling in premade (store bought) empanada wrappers
we crimped the edges
brushed them with an egg wash, and baked them at 375 degrees for around 20 minutes, till they looked like this
We made 60 (judging two per person) as far as the boy says people liked them. Will need to make some for the family next.
