Jamaican Beef Patties
December 07, 2007

I was looking for an authentic recipe to surprise my husband with, as he misses these from when we lived in London. I knew the meat mixture would need some additions to suit our tastes - so I added the following: 1 large diced yukon gold potato 1 diced green bell pepper 1 large carrot - shredded As for spice - I found it pretty vital to add 1/8 tsp of ground cloves and 1 tsp of sugar. This gave them the warmth aromatic flavor that makes Jamaican cuisine so distinctive. I also doubled the dough recipe as many others suggested - which yeilded 10 traditional sized patties. I love this because I can make half spicy for my husband and leave the rest for the kids and I. Great recipe!!
