At the local grocery store, I found frozen dough discs for making empanadas or meat turnovers. Well, how could I resist? In Hawaii, they do not have this dough available and if they did, it would probably costs you and arm and a leg, so I make my own and it is a lot of work.
I found a recipe for Argentinian Empanadas on the web. However, I didn't want to use ground beef. Instead, my mom cooked a chuck roast until it was very tender. I then shredded it like ones does when making ropa vieja (old clothes...a Cuban shredded meat dish). I also used Goya Sazon seasoning, instead of paprika and the jalapeno peppers. I fried half of the batch (of 20) and baked half of them.
My dad and mom seemed to enjoy them. Joey liked them too. The real test will be today when my brother comes over. If he liked them, then they turned out really well :-)
