Jamaican beef patties are a favorite of mine! I remember the first time I had homemade ones. I was a kid and my Jamaican neighbor, at that time invited my siblings and me over for her kids birthday party.
It was so good, a bit spicy but I loved it. I was hooked. I had to have them each time I went to a Caribbean restaurant. Even got them from the supermarket, although they didn’t taste as good as homemade, they curbed my cravings. I now make my own. These patties are super good and addictive. They’re one of the more popular recipes on my blog. I hope you can give them a try!
Quick tip: If you have issues working with dough try purchasing an empanada maker. It will make perfect patties and it will save you so much time!

I grew up with my mother and Southern grandmother. They both made simple, inexpensive GUD food! They taught me that you don’t need a lot of money or spend countless hours in the kitchen to make delicious meals. Money was tight back then but we still ate very well.
