I used pre-shredded steak instead of cutting it for myself. I find it cooks well and is extremely convenient. If you are cutting your own, I recommend freezing it for a short period of time to make it easier to cut and making fairly thin slices. The shreds I used were extremely thin, like pull apart roast beef.

The cut-out empanadas used above were a bit too small for my wife, so I doubled the diameter of them and she loved the difference that made.

I recommend sour cream and sweet chili sauce with the empanadas.
