Beef Samosas

Hubby and I love to buy samosas at the local market. This was my first attempt at making them from scratch. They turned out great and had just the right amount of spice! I made enough filling for two batches, froze half of it for another time and made 8 samosas with the remaining filling.

The Grocery List
  • 1 package puff pastry, rolled out and cut into 8 squares
  • 2 russet potatoes, diced
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1 regular carrot or 20 baby carrots, diced
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 2tsp garam masala
  • 1 1/2 tbsp curry powder
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 tbsp sweet chili dipping sauce
  • 1 egg and 1tbsp water, beaten
  • paprika (optional)

Cooking It All Up

Preheat over to 400.

Brown beef. Cook potato, carrots and onion until soft. (I did both of these in the things in the microwave, it took about 13 minutes for the veggies and I hit the "ground beef" button for the beef, be sure to drain and rinse the beef a few times if you use this method).

Mix beef, veggies, garam masala, curry powder, garlic, soy sauce, red pepper flakes, and sweet chili sauce in a large bowl.

Roll out your pastry and cut into squares. Fill each square with the beef mixture and fold over. I sealed the edges by pressing down with the tongs of a fork.

Brush each samosa with the egg wash and sprinkle with paprika.

Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
