Jamaican Beef Patties
Yield: 48

1 large onion (or 2 small), cut into chunks
2 scallions, trimmed
1 large scotch bonnet pepper, seeded (or 2 small)
2 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
1 can beef broth
3 tbsp. oil
1 tsp. thyme
black pepper to taste (about 1 tbsp)
2 1/2 cups dried bread crumbs

8 cups all-purpose flour
1 tbsp & 1 tsp tumeric
2 tsp salt
2 cup margarine, butter or other solid vegetable shortening
12-18 tbsp ice water

Preheat oven to 400 F. Make pastry in Cuisinart or with pastry
blender or knives in a bowl. Refrigerate 1 hour or overnight.

Put onion, scallions, and pepper in cuisinart and grind up. heat
oil in a large pot; mix meat and vegetables thoroughly, then saute
in the oil, breaking up chunks. Cook until it is brown (about 5
min.). Stir in spices and beef broth. Cover loosely and simmer for
30 min, letting the liquid boil off. Add bread crumbs and salt to
taste; the mixture should be moist but not wet. Roll pastry 3/8
inch thick, cut into 48 4-inch circles, fill as half-moon shapes
and seal with a fork. Put on baking sheet. Bake 30 minutes (or
until cooked) at 400. (Mine took 20 min.)

Also, buy some ripe plantains, slice them and fry them in butter,
and then roll up the slices and skewer them on toothpicks.
