holy empanada!

Santiago de Chile, Sunday 30 of november... today, I got one
invitation for Chilean Lunch! yiiiiiiihaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Gabriela and Antonio Küpfer (my Crazy Sister and my Brother
in Law), they are masters in cocktails and
Empanadas, Lasagna & Parmesano and Chilean Wine!!!! Yiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiihhhhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!...
I´m dreaming!!

I´m not the only Crazy in my family....

Shhhhhhhhhhh......silence! Chefs working!

The perfect combination....Chilean Wine (in this case Cabernet Sauvignon Montes Alpha, 2007) and Empanadas. The Chilean empanada is some kind of meat pies made from Onion, Meat, Sause, Olives....I don´t know what else....just I know is the best snack ever!
Crazy Sister, with Crazy face.... near to Crazy Antonio....making more Crazy Raspberry Cocktails...

the guard of the palace...

Ingredients:DOUGH 3 Cups All-purpose flour 1 Teaspoon Coarse salt 8 Tablespoons Unsalted butter -- cut in bits 2 Egg yolks 2 Tablespoons Tarragon vinegar 9 Tablespoons Cold water FILLING 1 tablespoon Olive oil 1 teaspoon Spanish paprika 1/8 teaspoon Cayenne 2 tablespoons Unsalted butter 2 medium Onions -- chopped fine 1/2 pound Lean ground beef 1/4 teaspoon Dried oregano 2 teaspoons Coarse salt 1 Bay leaf 1/2 cup Beef stock 3 tablespoons Seedless raisins 8 Kalamata olives -- chopped 1 Hard-boiled egg -- chopped GLAZE 1 Egg yolk 1 whole Egg 1 tablespoon Cold water.
Directions:Sift the flour and salt into a bowl. Add the butter, egg yolks, and vinegar and mix quickly and thoroughly with your fingertips until all ingredients are well incorporated. Add 5 tablespoons of the water and continue mixing, adding just enough of the remaining water, a little at a time, to make a firm dough. Refrigerate until ready to use. For the filling, heat the oil and butter in a saute pan. Add the onions and saute over medium heat until light brown around the edges, about 5 minutes. Add the beef, oregano, salt, and bay leaf and cook until all the liquid has evaporated. Add the stock and continue cooking until the stock has almost -- but not quite -- evaporated. Mix in the raisins and olives. Remove from the heat and let cool. Stir in the chopped hard-boiled egg. Correct the seasoning with salt to taste. Set aside. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. On a floured board, roll out the dough about 1/8-inch thick, shaping it into a 16-inch square. Cut out circles about 5-inches in diameter. Knead and re-roll the scraps and cut into additional circles. Place a heaping tablespoon of the meat filling about 1/2-inch from the edge of each circle. Brush the border of the circle with juices from the filling or with water. Fold the dough over to form a half-moon, pressing the edges together with your fingertips or the tines of a fork to seal. Prick the top of each empanada once or twice with the tines of the fork. Repeat this process until all the empanadas are assembled. Make the glaze by beating the egg yolk and egg with the water. Spread parchment paper on a baking sheet. Arrange the empanadas on top and brush with glaze. Bake for 30 minutes, or until golden. Remove the baking tray from the oven, and transfer the empanadas to a serving platter or individual plates, and serve hot...If you are Lucky and you are in Chile...You´ll can find Empanadas everywhere!...Thanks God!
I'm in heaven!!! yiaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
