Argentina are charging their way through the World Cup – it’s getting harder to decide what to cook!
For the quarter finals I prepared spicy beef empanadas using (quite unusually!) the recipe from the BBC which was from the Hairy Bikers (mums know best) series on TV.
I started on Sunday morning making the pastry and boiling two eggs. (yes – I was surprised at the boiled egg ingredient in the empanadas!)
The oil was heated to 350 F before frying the empanadas for about 7 minutes, turning them half way through.
I made 12 empanadas which were really good. They turned out well, but they were an incredible faff to do with rolling the pastry and then the frying. It took about 3 hours in total. I think if I was to do them again, I’d do them without egg in them so I could freeze them!
