Empanadas Argentinas are beef empanadas that Argentineans serve as appetizers at parties or as a simple, everyday lunch or dinner. Empanadas Argentinas are always baked instead of fried, so your family can enjoy them regularly, too. These beef empanadas-seasoned like empanadas you find in Buenos Aires-will delight anyone, no matter where you are.

Set beef mixture aside to cool. 3.Heat oven to 375°F. Place dough round on work surface. Using heaping tablespoon measure, spoon meat mixture onto center of dough round. Using pastry brush, paint edges of dough with egg wash. Fold dough into half-moon shape; gently press down edges and twist down to seal. Repeat with remaining ingredients. 4.Divide empanadas among baking sheets, leaving 1½" space between each empanada. Brush tops of empanadas with remaining egg wash. Cook until pastries puff, turn golden brown and filling is hot, about 20 minutes.
