Spanish Beef Pie

Span­ish Beef Pie

This savory pie is simple and can be made in large batches. I went ahead and recre­ated my own ver­sion of the famous ‘empanada'. You can make the beef 1-2 days before your gathering or holiday, and then assemble you pie and bake on the day you need it.It is a quick and sat­is­fy­ing crowd pleaser. Try it at your next gath­er­ing, you won’t be disappointed.

Spanish Shopping Tip

Spanish cuisine often uses less than ordinary ingredients like Spanish paprika, Spanish wine, and saffron. Be sure to have these on-hand before concocting your Spanish dishes.

Spanish Cooking Tip

Saffron is used for both color and flavor. Use the threads if you want colors, and use ground saffron threads if you are using for flavor.
