Re: You Canít Beat A Nice Homemade Pastie!

Gosh I have not made them for years.
I use rump steak, I marinate all the meat and vegetables the night before.
Short crust pastry of course.

Whenever, l cook roast beef, l always keep some to make pasties.
I make shortcrust pastry, cut into shape using a small side plate.
I either mince the beef or cut into small pieces. I boil some diced potato, carrots and swede. I also add left over vegetables, like peas or runner beans, if l have those too.
I put everything into a bowl, l chop a raw onion very finely by hand or in my mini chopper. I season and sprinkle a beef Oxo over the meat and vegetables that l have left a small bit of vegetable water in, so itís not dry.
I spoon the mixture onto the pastry rounds that l have dampened at the edges. I fold the pastry over to seal the mixture in, prick the pastry and brush with beaten egg.
I cook at approx 180c until golden brown. At half way, l brush them again with the beaten egg.

They are so tasty and cheap as chips!
Sounds delicious!

She suggested "skirt" (as the meat) if you misheard

of course you can adapt as you wish as to what to add to the
meat in the way of veg.
I FFW'd that just to see if she folded the pastry the way I've been taught ... and she did.

That's the biggest pasty I've ever seen.

Potato, cheese 'n onion.

Sweetie, Donít waste your good rump steak! Have that with chips, peas, mushrooms, onion rings and salad.

The last pasties l made were with Brisket of beef. I had never cooked Brisket before and the piece l bought cos it was reduced in Morrisons was so big, l had to think of ways to use it.
It was ideal for pasties!
