I know that it is a meat food, but what does it look like? (שולחן ערוך יורה דעה צד, 8)

I didn't find any explanations about it from Google.

    Perhaps half-jokingly when we learned this we assumed it was empanadas. I don't have a source offhand but it seemed clear it was the same as פשטיד"א, which is described as dough stuffed with meat.

    @robev In Belize, empanadas are known as panades.

I have found in the article (p. 8 of the PDF) of Eliezer Papo that it is

מאכל ספרדי דומה לבורקס שלנו היום – כיסנים ממולאים בבשר או בגבינה.‏

a Sephardic food similar to our bourekas today – dumplings filled with meat or cheese.

It says that it is the same as the current empanada, so Robev's and Joel K's guess was correct.
