Paleo Jamaican Beef Patties

Yeah, that’s right, Paleo Jamaican Patties!!! Boom!!!

A friend of mine asked me to develop a Jamaican Patty recipe for her on my Punk Rock Paleo Cookbook Page

” I have a paleo request.. Mission if you are open to it.. Paleo Jamaican beef patties.. No tongue please.. Just beef :)”

I must say that what I came up with far exceeded my expectations and I am quite pleased with myself #patshisownbackvigorously 🙂


  • 4 Green Plantain
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1lb Ground Beef
  • 2 Green Onions
  • ½ Onion
  • 2 tbsp Fat of Choice
  • 2 + ¼ tbsp Curry Powder
  • 1 tbsp Cumin
  • 1 tbsp Fish Sauce
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • ½ tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 tbsp Fresh Thyme



  1. Cut up and boil the plantain to help remove the skin.
  2. Drain and remove the plantain skin, then return to a boil for 20+ minutes (or until soft)
  3. In a food processor mix the plantain and egg until it forms into a nice dough ball.
  4. Separate the dough ball into 10 equal portions. Set aside.


  1. Heat the fat in a pot and fry the onion until soft
  2. Add in the ground beef and stir occasionally until almost cooked through.
  3. Add in the spices, fish sauce and green onion and cook until done.
  4. Set aside.


  1. Take a piece of parchment paper and place on counter top
  2. Flatten a dough ball and place onto one end of the paper
  3. Fold over the paper and roll out the dough to about 1/8 to ¼ inch thick
  4. Unfold the paper and place a heaping tbsp of meat mixture in the middle of dough
  5. Using the paper, fold the dough up and over so that the ends touch making a semi-circle
  6. Push the ends together and then remove the parchment paper
  7. Place on a cookie sheet
  8. Repeat for all the dough balls
  9. Put into a pre-heated over at 375 for 25-35 minutes

    Glad I found this recipe. These were amazing. If only I got the technique of folding them down before the last few they would have been perfect. Thanks again!
