In some parts of South America pastel is a pastry using a thin crust wrapper and stuffed with different fillings. Today I am going to share the most common pastel of South America which is beef pastel, here is how to do it.
Ingredients:1/4 kilo ground beef
1 onion (minced)
4 cloves garlic (minced)
15 regular size pastel wrapper
2 hard boiled eggs
Salt and pepper to taste
Procedure:1. Saute garlic and onion then add the ground beef, salt and pepper to taste, then simmer until it is well cooked. When it is cooked let it cool.
2. When it is not hot anymore, crushed the hard boiled egg and mix it well with the sauted ground beef.
3. Spoon a portion of the mixture and put it in a pastel wrapper.
4. Then sealed it using a fork.
5. Repeat this process until you finish wrapping all the filling, then fry it until golden brown. Serve it hot.
