Beef Carnitas Empanada

Empanadas are Mexican-style pastries filled with meat, vegetables, or even dessert. This family-sized version is known as an empanada gallega. It's served in wedges like a stuffed pizza. Pork Carnitas would also be a delicious filling. Leftovers are best reheated in the oven.
