Love at first bite - Jamaican Beef Patties! _ I've been to Jamaica more than once but it was not in Jamaica that I had my first bite of their famous beef patties and fell in love, it was in Guyana, many years ago! But the patties were made by Jamaicans. They were sooooo good. The all-shortening pastry crust (aka flaky pastry) is one of the stars of this patty. You can see the flakes as the patty comes out of the oven.
Jamaican Beef Patties - mix 1 Tbs vinegar + 1 egg with ice water. Divide dough into balls, roll each one as thin as possible and fold over several times before rolling again to make patties - this creates a flaky crust.
