How to Make Jamaican Beef Patties

How to make the pastry
You will need…

  • 4 cups of all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 cup vegetable shortening or lard, at room temperature (look for non-hydrogenated shortening)

How to Make the Filling

You will need…

  • 2 onions
  • 3 scallions, including green tops
  • 2 scotch bonnet chilies
  • 1 ½ pounds ground beef or chuck
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 ½ cups fine bread crumbs
  •  ¾ teaspoon ground thyme
  • ¾ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  • to taste
  • 1 cup water

Make the outer crust

  •  In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, turmeric, and salt.
  • Stir with a whisk to blend.
  • Cut in the shortening with a pastry blender or 2 dinner knives until the dough has the consistency of cornmeal.
  • Gradually add just enough cold water to hold the dough together, mixing it in with a fork.
  • Take care not to overwork your dough; it should just come together.
  • Form the dough into a disk and wrap it in the plastic wrap.
  • Refrigerate the dough while you make the filling, or for as long as overnight.
  • If chilled overnight, remove from the refrigerator 15 minutes before rolling out

How to make the filling

  • Cut up the onions, scallions, and chilies
  • Add to the beef and mix well.
  •  In a Dutch oven or large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat, then cook the meat mixture, stirring frequently, until lightly browned, about 10 minutes.
  • Stir in the bread crumbs, seasonings, and water.
  • Cover and simmer for 20 – 30 minutes, or until thickened; the mixture should be just wet, not runny or dry. Remove from the heat and let cool while you roll out the dough.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Combine the filling and Pastry

  • Divide the dough into 24 even sized pieces.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out each piece of dough to a thickness of about ⅜ of an inch. a little thicker than pie dough
  •  and cut into a round shape using a can, glass, or cup about 4 inches across.
  • Place the rounds on the ungreased baking sheets Cover the rounds you are not working on with a damp cloth.
  •  Spoon filling onto a round to cover half of the pastry, leaving a ¼ inch border.
  • Fold the other half over and seal the edges by crimping with a fork,. Bake the patties for 30 – 35 minutes, or until golden. Serve hot!

Enjoy. Jah Bless.
