I promise that these are the BEST Chinse Crispy Beef Meat Pies you will ever try! Pan-fried to perfection, the outside is crispy while the inside is super juicy. Once you take a bite into these Chinese Crispy Beef Meat Pies, you will be blown away by how delicious they are and how easy it is to make at home.
My mom used to make Beef Meat pie all the time, and it was my favorite treat after-school snack. There is something about the crispy skin and the juicy filling that makes it the best snack to have before dinner. You can pre-make them and freeze them in the freezer for up to 2 months. When you are ready, just pan fry and it will taste just as good! I always have frozen food prepared to go, such as homemade wontons, potstickers, beef noodle soup, and more!
The secret to having a juicy filling is mixing in a splash of water. The beef will hold on to the water and rest of the seasoning, and when pan-fried and heated up, the juices will fill up the pancake, and once you take the first bite, juices will be bursting out. I love to pair these with my homemade chili oil and black vinegar as my go-to dipping sauce.
