Mini Panamanian Beef Empanadas

20 ingredients
about 24 empanadas
At Panamonte Inn & Spa, chef Charlie Collins teaches students how to make perfectly flaky empanada dough. For fillings, he uses local ingredients like beef jerk (dried, preseasoned meat) and culantro (a long-leafed herb with a pungent flavor); ground beef and cilantro are fine substitutes. Chef Tip: For a flakier empanada, use leaf lard instead of butter.
