      I love the recipe! As a time saver, I use Goya Discos (premade empanada dough in the frozen section) instead of making the dough myself and it cuts the time tremendously (about 40 minutes start to finish). I grew up on Jamaican beef patties so the short cut allows me to have it whenever I get a craving. When I use the premade dough I egg wash the tops to make them shine. I can even get my fiance to help assemble the patties. To keep the patties HOT keep the habanero seeds in; less hot but still with spice take out the seeds, and omit the habanero if you have a person who just can't take the heat.

      This is an awesome recipe. I've made it three times now. Be warned it can be very labor intensive, but it's really worth it. The first time, I think it took me about 3-4 hours. The last time I got down to 2 hours. The changes I made: 1. The meat needed alot more salt than the recipe calls for, so I added to taste. 2. I increased the habanero for extra spicyness. 3. I added 4 or 5 cloves of garlic to the meat. 4. I eliminated the thyme, due to personal taste preference. The texture of the dough was wonderful and perfectly complimented the filling. I would suggest splitting the dough into equal parts of 7-8 dough balls. It's very easy to get the exact dough necessary that way, basically this gets you restaurant-sized patties. I made the mistake of filling the patties up too much, I would say use about 1/4 cup of filling. My family are huge fans of jamaican foods and they gobbled these right up!

      I love patties and have tried a few different recipes so I thought I would try one more. My search continues for the perfect authentic pattie! The dough was easy to make, I used 1/2 cup of shortening and 1/2 cup of butter instead of 1cup of shortening. The crust turned out flaky and delicious but I will omit the butter next time as it ws a little too buttery tasting. The filling was tasty but I definitely like a bit more kick to mine. Something is missing but I cannot figure out what. Perhaps a bit of curry in the meat and a few cloves of garlic. I will try it next time. Overall, a good recipe but you may want to tinker around with the filling depending on the intenisty of heat you desire.
