1 cup sunflower oil
1 cup beer at room temperature
1 teaspoon salt
4 cups flour
A Pilsen-type beer works best as it contains hops which add to the flavour.
Mix all ingredients very well, first with a fork, then your hands. The better you mix it the better it tastes.
Allow to rest for 20 min.
Roll out into empanada shape and stuff with your favourite fillings--veg, soy "meat" or "fish", tomato sauce...the only limit is your imagination. You can even use it for fruit turnovers. Seal the edges of the empanada with soymilk or water.
Bake in a moderate oven until brown.
Can be used for one big empanada or individual ones. Also good for pasties etc.
