Beef Picadillo

1 pound ground beef, lean

3/4 teaspoon cumin

Salt and pepper

1/2 onion, diced

1/2 green pepper, diced

2 cloves garlic, chopped

1/4 cup chicken broth

1 bay leaf

3/4 cup tomato sauce


1/4 cup pimento stuffed olives, chopped

2 teaspoons capers

1/4 cup raisins

In a large saute pan brown the ground beef with the cumin, salt and pepper. Remove the meat from the skillet and saute the onions, green peppers, garlic and bay leaf till the veggies are tender. Pour in the chicken broth and tomato sauce and simmer. Add in the olives, capers and raisins. Cook till the liquid has reduced. Remove from the heat and allow the mixture to cool.

To prepare the empanadas: Roll out the dough till it is 1/4 inch thin. Using an oversized biscuit cutter, cut out circles. Place a teaspoon of the meat mixture in the center. Brush the edge of the dough with beaten egg. Fold in half and crimp the edges with a fork. Brush the empanadas with egg and bake for 14-17 minutes or until golden brown. Enjoy!
