Birria Empanadas

Options
I made Birria some time back and froze what was left.  Since I’m iced in I got around to making these






Great second time around

Just Vote- What if you could choose "none of the above" on an election ballot? Millions of Americans do just that, in effect, by not voting.  The result in 2016: "Nobody" won more counties, more states, and more electoral votes than either candidate for president.

    That may be the best birria yet.

    Coleman, Texas
    Large BGE & Mini Max for the wok. A few old camp Dutch ovens and a wood fired oven. LSG 24” cabinet offset smoker. There are a few paella pans and a Patagonia cross in the barn. A curing chamber for bacterial transformation of meats...
    "Bourbon slushies. Sure you can cook on the BGE without them, but why would you?"

    I bet it was great the first time around. My kind of grub right there. Great job brother 👍

    The greatest barrier against all wisdom, the stronghold against knowledge itself, is the single thought, in ones mind, that they already have it all figured out.

    TBH.. We had pie crust left over from the Holidays so I just used those. Likely a bit flaky for authentic but cleaned out more of the fridge.

    Pepper Jack, perfectly melted into the meat- no real sign of it.

    It was pie crust and after reforming it rolling it out that small one was the last one of the first batch.  Did much better in 2nd   batch which is pictured finished
