Uncle Larry’s Meat Patties

An integral part of Jamaican culture – the legendary Uncle Larry’s Patties. Here’s the recipe, or go to to check out more of Uncle Larry’s delicious cuisine.




Use frozen puff pastry or shortcrust. If making fresh pastry, add a teaspoon of ground tumeric or annatto to give the traditional yellow colour.


300g/10 oz minced beef or chicken

1 tsp Walkerswood Jerk Marinade or

½ tsp Walkerswood Traditional Jerk Seasoning

1 onion, finely diced

1 clove garlic, minced

1 – 2 tomatoes, finely diced

2 tsp breadcrumbs

1 tsp Walkerswood One Stop Sauce


Mix all the filling ingredients together and sauté in a little oil until cooked. Set aside and allow to cool. Lightly beat one raw egg in a cup and set aside. Defrost the pastry, roll it out, and cut out circles, about 15cm/6 in in diameter. Place a small amount of filling in the middle. Paint the edges with the egg. Fold the pastry over the filling and press the edges of the pastry together with a fork. Place the patties on a baking sheet and bake in a preheated oven at 190ºC/ 375ºF for 20-30 minutes until golden brown.

Makes approx 4 – 6 patties.
