KETO BEEF EMPANADAS
KETO EMPANADA DOUGH – 2 cups Almond Flour – 2 Eggs – 2 tbsp Water – ½ tsp Salt – 2 tbsp Xanthan Gum GROUND BEEF FILLING – ½ tbsp Olive Oil – 3 tbsp Onion – 12 oz Beef – 2 tbsp Tomato Paste – 1 tsp Ground Paprika – ½ tsp Ground Cumin – ½ tsp Salt – ½ tsp Garlic Powder – ¼ cup Parsley
Cook the Onions
In a non-stick pan, warm olive oil over medium heat. Cook the onions until soft and fragrant, about 1-2 minutes.
Stir in ground beef and break the meat with a wooden spoon to brown the meat evenly. Cook for 2-3 minutes until no more red parts can be seen.
Stir in tomato paste, cumin, paprika, salt, garlic powder, oregano, and fresh parsley to the Keto Beef Empanadas meat.
Simmer the Meat
Cook for 1 more minute until flavors are evenly combined, and then use a slotted spoon to drain the meat and transfer to a clean bowl. Set aside.
Start Empanadas Dough
In a small mixing bowl, beat the eggs with water to start the Keto Beef Empanadas Dough. Set aside.
In the bowl of a food processor, using the S blade attachment, add almond flour, xanthan gum, and salt. Process for a few seconds to combine.
Add Egg Mixture
Add the beaten egg mixture and process again at high speed for about 30 seconds It should be slightly sticky, but easy to gather pieces together into a pastry dough ball.
Wrap the pastry dough ball into a piece of cling film wrap and refrigerate 10 minutes before using.
Roll the Keto Dough
Remove the Keto Beef Empanadas dough from the freezer and roll between 2 pieces of parchment paper.
Make 15 Circles
Repeat with the remaining dough, then reroll dough scraps once to cut out more dough circles. You should be able to make 15 circles of about 20 g/0.7 oz each.
Place 1 tablespoon of meat filling in the center of the circle, then lightly moist the outer edges of the circle with water.
Fold Keto Empanadas
Fold the Keto Beef Empanadas and press the edges with your finger to seal. Use the back of a fork to create marks.
Seal with Water
If the top of the Keto Beef Empanadas cracks when you fold it, rub a bit of water with your fingertips to fix the cracks or add a tiny piece of extra dough to fill the gap.
Transfer to Baking Sheet
Lay the empanadas on the baking sheet covered with a lightly-greased piece of parchment paper.
Brush with Egg Mixture
Brush the top of each Keto Beef Empanada with the beaten-egg mixture using a kitchen brush.
