Spanish empanada (from Asturias)









The history of this empanada is the following if you want to heard, of course, my grandmother came from Spain, Asturias specifically Mieres, her whole family came (10 kids  and parents) to seek new paths here in America.


Others brothers  remained in Spain. my grandmother's name was Filomena, and married my grandfather in Argentina ......and he was from  England, Southampton, his name was Maurice and had four children of which my mother is the child, (my mother now 81) came from there to Punta Arenas, Chile, south of the world literally, my mother was born in Punta Arenas.
(The funny was my grandmom never learned english!)


This empanada  always made ​​it for special occasions in Spain clarified that because each area has its own types of empanadas, in fact this is the biggest I've seen, this recipe was not published until now because my mom only makes the other day we invited, made and waited for me (with saintly patience) to take the photos, may actually make it but I love how it fits, is a delicious soft dough filled with chicken and Spanish chorizo ​​is impressive and good my mom and not get tired and wanted to make a long but now after a while I thank you because you were sick and had surgery, particularly this year, but still takes energy to cook sometimes.


My mom

Empanada española (de Asturias)









La historia de esta empanada  está a ligada  a  mi familia especialmente a mi mamá y a mi abuela.
Mi abuela Filomena venía de Asturias, España. Específicamente de Mieres. Ella, sus hermanos y sus padres se vinieron a buscar nuevos horizontes a América.
Primero llegaron a Argentina y algunos se quedaron allá y otros se vnieron a Chile. Mi abuela se casó en argentina con Mauricio Baker que venía de Southampton  England. él casi no hablaba español y ella nunca aprendió mucho inglés tuvieron 4 hijos y mi mamá es la menor.
Hoy tiene 81 años pero ya cocina menos, se cansa mucho.
Bueno esta empanada mi abuela la hacia siempre para ocasiones especiales, esta viene de Asturias, digo esto porque en España hay muchos tipos de empanadas.
Y mi mamá la sigue haciendo, hace poco la hizo de nuevo (ha estado enferma) y nos invitó a su casa y le tomé fotos, esta es la que les presento hoy dia es deliciosa. Es una empanada grande que se hace en una fuente
y la masa es muy rica y va rellena de pollo , chorizo español, pimientos y tomate para la salsa.
Lo que más me ha demorado es traducir la receta, está en español pero en estilo antiguo, mi mamá la ha ido adaptando a la época actual pero aún  usamos la receta que mi abuela nos dejó.


Ingredientes

Masa

1 kilo de harina sin polvos de hornear
3 cucharaditas de polvos de hornear
125 grs. de mantequilla
agua fría
sal
1 huevo batido con leche para
la masa


Relleno

1 pollo entero (despresado pero sin deshuesar)
1 cebolla grande picada fina
3 cucharadas de aceite
2 dientes de ajo
1 pimiento verde picado(pequeño)
1 pimiento rojo picado(pequeño)
300 grs. chorizo español cortado en rodajas
1 tarro o bote de tomates al natural con su jugo
sal
pimienta

Nota:
El relleno conviene prepararlo el día anterior o la noche anterior porque es muy jugoso.

Preparación

Cortar el pollo en presas pero sin retirar los huesos (se usan las presas enteras)
Reservar.
En un sartén o en una olla grande colocar el aceite y freir las presas de pollo hasta que esten doradas, retirar y dejar aparte, agregar al mismo aceite la cebolla picada con el ajo, freir durante unos minutos hasta que esté transparente, agregar los pimientos y los chorizos ya cortados, y  el tarro o bote de tomates al natural, revolver  un rato y finalmente agregar el pollo que se ha reservado, sazonar con sal y pimienta y cocinar por unos 30 minutos a fuego lento, el pollo debe estar cocido pero no deshecho, apagar y dejar hasta el otro día.

  38. Gloria hoy por casualidad he visitado tu blog y me llamó la atención la empanada que tiene una pinta buenísima, pero cual fué mi sorpresa que tienes raices de Mieres, Asturias, y yo vivo a 12 kilometros de Mieres en un pueblo que se llama Pola de Lena, preguntale atu abuela si se acuerda.
    Me hace mucha gracia lo del pollo despresado que no sé que es, pero de lo demás la traducción está muy bien.
    No me imagino en aquellos tiempos a tu abuela y a tu abuelo sin entenderse ni una palabra y mira tú, se enamoraron, se casaron y tuvieron hijos QUE FELICIDAD!.
    Ahora que sé de tu blog me haré seguidora.
    Muchos besinos y para tu abuela de una asturianina, je,je.
