Excellent!! I loved the spice combo! I didn't do the water and breadcrumbs, and I used rolled out Pillsbury Grands Biscuits. I also mixed mango chutney and salsa for the dipping sauce. Super awesome! Thanks for this naughty little pouch of goodness ;)

Very tasty and relatively easy to make. I have never made anything like this before but once I got going it was pretty straight forward. I followed the recipe exactly up to the point of baking. I decided to freeze them, which turned out to be a good idea for later use as an appetizer for Thanksgiving. All I did was fill each one and put them all on a freezer tray. Once frozen, I popped them into a freezer bag and took them out to thaw the morning I intended to cook them. They were very flavourful and served with salsa and sour cream were lovely ! Thank you so much for a recipe I can use over and over !

This made for another great lunch Manami... We really loved it. I did cut recipe in half since we were just two. I only had the Progresso Italian breadcrumbs so I used that but I don't think that made a big difference. But I did find I needed to add a little more water than stated. The flavor of the meat mixture was so yummy !! And the taste of the salsa was absolutely delicious. These were very filling little things. I loved the Pillsbury Crescent rolls, they were just so flaky with this dish. Thanks for sharing a great recipe Manami....I will be having these again. We loved them.

These meat pies are tasty! I found Pillsbery refrigerated crescent roll dough without perforations so I was able to cut the dough into the desired shape and size. I served them with grilled pineapple. I will definately prepare these again.

Simply wonderful! I made (most of) these as directed and they were fantastic! I have to admit that I forgot to add the bread-crumb mixture until I had half of the rolls stuffed, but ALL of them were delicious. The goofs were just a little messier, but just as tasty! Great recipe, a definite keeper!

5 Stars for the MEAT! I was looking for Jamaican Meat filling and read every recipe on here and kept coming back to this one because we like it hot. Glad I did! However, I wrapped my meat in a flour tortilla, brushed with EVVO and baked it. Mexican-Jamaican fusion if you will. I had leftover chicken broth and coconut milk so I used it in place of the water and added 2 tbs. of Sofrito. I also served mine with cucumber sauce. The recipe is awesome as posted. I only made additions to use little odds and ends I had in my fridge. It worked out perfectly. Great meat filling for all sorts of things...lettuce wraps come to mind as well. Thanks!

I used to buy a brand of jamaican meat pie from BJ's (a local warehouse store). NEVER again. easy to make and I like that I can have beef,chicken,pork,ham, whatever. I have made these using chicken, pork, and beef so far. the beef are the best. I did not change anything else just the type of meat.

Wow! Now this is what I'm talking about! I first had Jamaican meat pies when I lived in Toronto and the frozen ones seem impossible to get here in Nebraska. All the recipes look so complicated but I like that these are made with pre-made dough! I can't wait to try them!

wow wow wow I'm not sure if I goofed on the cayenne or not, these were good, but wow they were hot!!! I only had one can of crescent rolls, so I had half filling left, so to use it up I cut pita bread in half, put a layer of the meat and topped them off with tomato slices, cucumber and lettuce, kinda like a burger, the veggies cooled it down some. And what was left after that I hollowed out a couple of bunds and filled them to freeze, also froze some the crescent roll pies. We did like them, especially as a burger, but another time I will cut back some on the "hot" stuff. Thanks for posting. Forgot to say I used beef burger.
