Chop the onion in brunoise. It is important that we cut small pieces so that the filling is homogeneous. Remember the tricks to avoid crying when cutting onion. Poach the minced onion in a frying pan with a pinch of salt and when it is soft, add the minced meat.

We stir well so that the meat cooks and when we see that it has changed color, we add the concentrated tomato and a glass of water. We let it cook until there is no liquid and we have a firm and homogeneous filling. With this filling we could also make meat dumplings, either fried or baked, using dumplings.

We preheat the oven to 200ºC and while it reaches that temperature, we spread the dough of the empanada and place the meat filling in the bottom half, trying to leave a centimeter of dough uncovered to be able to then close. We fold the dough covering the filling and make the closure or repulgue.

In the center of the empanada we make a cross with a sharp knife. Then we varnish the surface of the pie with a little beaten egg and bake it until it has a nice golden color.

With what to accompany a meat pie

Meat empanada is a dish that is enjoyed both freshly made, when it gets a little warm or when it is cold. It is ideal for snacks or snacks and is also good as a picnic or taper recipe. The good thing is that it can be done in advance, serving as a starter for when we have guests, while preparing the main course.
