Jamaican Beef Patties


An international combination of real beef, herbs, spices, and French bread is great on appetizers, lunch, or dinner, and delivers a red-hot aroma that it relishes.



  1. Grind the escallion and hot peppers in a mincing mill. Add to ground beef with salt.
  2. Place meat in a saucepan, making a well in the center into 4 sprigs of thyme.
  3. Cook without adding any water or fat until meat has lost its broth and the only certain amount of oil remains.
  4. Pour off excess oil and add this to the paprika to be used later on, as strained for coloring meat.
  5. While meat is being cooked, pour sufficient cold water over bread in a saucepan to cover and soak for a few minutes, then squeeze dry, saving water.
  6. Pass bread through the mincing mill and return the ground bread and water with 4 sprigs of thyme and cook until bread is dry. Combine meat and cooked bread.
  7. Add paprika with sufficient quantity to color the meat to taste.
  8. Cook together for a further 20 minutes; add Accent.
  9. Remove from fire. Cool for filling pastry circles. Serve hot with other dishes.


You can make a dough for the Jamaican beef patties instead of French bread while cooking.
