Pastel – A Brazilian Dish Easily Made at Home instructions

  1. Finely chop the onions, peel the carrot, and finely chop or use a cheese grater to grate the carrot..
  2. Heat the pan with olive oil, add the garlic, and once it's fragrant, add the ground beef. Lightly season with salt and pepper, and stir-fry until it becomes crumbly and it turns brown..
  3. Add the onions, carrot, chopped raisins, and green olives, and continue stir-frying..
  4. Pour in the tomato sauce and Japanese Worcestershire-style sauce, sprinkle in the soup stock granules, cumin, and oregano, and simmer over low heat for 10 minutes..
  5. Transfer the filling into a bowl to let it cool down..
  6. Once the bread dough (or pastry dough) has finished the 1st rising, roll it out into 10 cm diameter circles..
  7. Put 1 tablespoon of the cooled filling and a thinly sliced boiled egg on top of each portion of bread dough..
  8. Fold the dough into half, seal the edges like you're making gyoza dumplings, and press a fork around the borders to seal them up tightly..
  9. Brush the surface of the dough with the beaten egg, bake in the oven preheated to 180°C for 15 minutes until nice and golden brown, and they're done..
  10. If you're able to find green olives stuffed with pimento, I strongly recommend you use them. You'll get much closer to the authentic taste!.
  11. You can also make them using either 2 wonton skins or 2 spring roll wrappers. Put the filling on the 1st sheet of wrapper as shown in the photo, and lay the other wrapper on top..
  12. This are Brazilian-style fried wontons – it's the same filling wrapped with wonton skins and then deep-fried..
