Jamaican Patties


Juicy, succulently spiced meaty filling inside of flakey, buttery crust, which for all intents and purposes we can call Jamaican patties, were the semi-daily vessel of joy I remember from the times I used to live in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn. Now I mostly use them to "win" the best dish award at a friendly potluck dinner, while casually deflecting compliments as my thoughts quietly judge that weak-ass salad Sarah made. They are easy to make, and easy to store (if that's a thing). What I am trying to say is that they can live in the fridge for a while and when needed, you can pop’em in the oven to heat them when you’re ready to munch! Amplify the bold flavors by adding a refreshing yogurt sauce and/or some chili for an absolutely BOMB experience. Have fun kids!



 250g (2 cups) spelt or all-purpose flour
 115 grams (½ cup) unsalted pant-based butter, cold
 1 tsp Turmeric
 1 tsp Garam Masala
 1 tsp Salt
 120 ml (1/2 cup) Ice Cold Water


 1/4 of a juicy marbles loin, chopped up or pulled apart
 1 large carrot, diced
 1 medium-sized onion, diced
 3 garlic cloves, crushed and minced
 A small piece of ginger, minced
 1 small leek, chopped
 1 tsp dry thyme
 1 tsp turmeric
 1 tsp garam masala
 2 tsp smoked paprika
 1 tsp cumin1 tsp white or black pepper
 2 tsp onion powder
 2 tsp garlic powder
 1 tsp cayenne pepper
 2 tbsp tomato paste
 1 tsp soy sauce
 Salt to taste, approximately 1-2 tsp
 Oil for sautéing, I used sunflower seed oil


1. Heat a large non-stick pan to medium heat. First add the turmeric, garam masala, smoked paprika, cayenne, and cumin powder and toast for 1-2 minutes, until fragrant.
2. Next, add some oil. When the oil is hot add the onion, carrots, ginger, and salt. Cook for about 3-4 minutes, until the chopped onion becomes translucent. Next mix in the leeks, fresh garlic, garlic powder & onion powder.
3. Next add the pulled-apart juicy marbles pieces, tomato paste, soy sauce, and a tad more oil if needed. Mix everything. Allow the filling to sauté for 3-4 minutes, then mix it up and sauté for another 3 minutes, then mix it again. Continue doing this until the Juicy Marble's pieces are all slightly crisp and everything is cooked nicely. You can taste the filling to make sure it’s cooked through. Add salt and pepper as needed.


1. Preheat to 190°C/ 400°F. Prepare a tray with parchment paper. Roll out your dough pretty thin, but not so thin that it going to tare when you close the patty. Use a bowl or small plate to make circles out of the dough. Use a knife to cut the circles out. The size of your circles is flexible, it just depends on how big you want to make your patties.
2. Fill each circle with a generous amount of filling and then fold it in half and close the patty. Move each one onto the oven tray as you make them.
4. If you want a shinier, crispier patty, brush a light layer of oil over each patty before putting them in the oven.
5. Bake patties for 15-25 minutes (If you make small patties they’ll need closer to 15-20 mins if you make big ones they’ll need 20-25 mins). Take them out of the oven when they start to get toasty brown.

Serve with some herby yogurt and your favorite hot sauwce!! Woop woop!
