Organic Jamaican Beef Patties

A great patty is not about the perfect moon shape that sits perfect in your hand. It’s about achieving the ideal proportion of juicy, spicy, sweet onion flavour of the filling. This one nails it.

Enjoy with a cooling and crunchy tropical slaw with mango-jalapeno dressing. Because slaw does not have to include a heavy, mayo-based dressing and Fresh City's Mango-Jalapeno Dressing is something to covet.

This Meal Kit comes with everything you need to make a healthy meal for 2 people! This recipe uses organically grown and locally sourced produce. We assume you have basic kitchen tools, salt, pepper, and olive oil. Please note that allergy preferences and substitutions cannot be accommodated.
