Made twice now. 1st time, filling is a good base, pastry is so thick and dry no matter how flat you can get it. Thumbs down on the pastry recipe. 2nd time, made filling as normal, added 2 extra teaspoons of curry, 1 teaspoon chili powder, ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper and 2 diced cloves of fresh garlic. Made beef broth with 2 beef bouillons boiled in 9 oz of water. Added all 9 oz to meat mixture. Did not use regular bread crumbs, instead I used 1 cup of panko bread crumbs. Was going to use a different pastry recipe but decided to buy frozen sheets of puff pastry. 1000 times better. Cut each sheet into 9 squares, flatten and folded in meat mixture. Baked 12-15 minutes. The puff pastry is key for this recipe. Trust me, you will pick the puff pastry over the pastry recipe listed. With my changes to the recipe, made it taste like a real jamaican beef patty.
