Traditional Beef Empanadas with Llajua Sauce - 12 Pack

These traditional Argentinian empanadas are baked and not fried, and filled with a mixture of beef, onions, eggs, olives, and special seasonings. Just pop them into your oven until they’re golden brown and delicious, and serve with zingy, tomatoey llajua sauce!

Chef Francis Mallmann is synonymous with Argentinian cuisine. In fact, he’s South America’s most famous celebrity chef! The chef, TV host, and cookbook author is perhaps the world’s most renowned ambassador of traditional Patagonian-style open-fire barbecue, and he owns several restaurants in his native Argentina along with ones as far-flung as Uruguay, Miami Beach, and Aix-en-Provence, France. Mallmann famously hangs and slow-cooks meat over a raging fire, a traditional gaucho technique that was the focal point of his featured episode of Netflix’s acclaimed “Chef’s Table.”
