    Empanada de Carne - Recipe from Joseph Ahearne, El Porteno Empanada

    Makes 15

    1 cup raisins
    1 cup beef stock (preferably organic)
    1 cups diced yellow onion
    2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    1 tablespoon garlic, minced
    1 pounds ground beef
    teaspoon cayenne pepper
    teaspoon cumin
    teaspoon cinnamon
    1 teaspoon paprika
    1 teaspoon brown sugar
    1 teaspoon kosher salt
    1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    3 large eggs, hard-boiled, peeled and thinly sliced
    1 cup chopped pimiento-stuffed green olives
    cup egg wash

    15 tapitas, 5 to 6 inches in diameter, available at Latin markets

    Coarse sea salt, for garnish

    1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a small saucepan, bring one half cup of the beef stock to a boil and add raisins. Remove from heat and let sit for 20 minutes. Heat a large skillet over medium heat; add olive oil and brown beef, approximately 15 minutes. Strain the meat and reserve liquids. Set aside.

    2. In same skillet, saut onions over medium-high heat until golden brown. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30seconds. Return beef to skillet, reduce heat, and add all dry ingredients.

    3. From the reserved beef juices, skim fat, and combine juice and enough beef stock to measure one cup. Add raisins and remaining stock, then fold in olives. Transfer mixture to large mixing bowl.

    4. To assemble empanadas, lay tapitas on a floured countertop or marble pastry board. If the weather is warm, lay out fewer tapitas at a time, as they are easier to work with when cool. Moisten the outer rim of dough with egg wash, and place a thin slice of hard-boiled egg off center in each tapita. Add 2 ounces of filling on top ofegg.5. Fold dough over to form semicircle, leaving a small underlip on bottom layer. Using your index finger, fold the under layer over your other index finger to form a"rope" crimp. Alternatively, you may use the tines of a fork to crimp the edge of each pastry.

    6. Brush empanadas with egg wash and lightly sprinkle with sea salt (no more than 8-10 granules). Place on cookie sheet one-inch apart, and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.

    Note: Joseph Ahearne makes his own dough, and is happy to sell it to customers. You can substitute pre-made pie dough, or look for La Saltena brand empanada dough (called tapitas, or tapas) at Latin markets. Ahearne recommends Val 16 in San Francisco (3100 16thStreet), which specializes in Argentine products.
