You Canít Beat A Nice Homemade Pastie!

I am sure most of you know how to make pasties but l thought you might like to read how I make mine!

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!

Realist, l thought you might think that pasties were a bad food, so l was delighted to see your response.

I bet the ones you make are delicious and would go great with a few slices of your crusty bread!

Cor, your recipe sounds smashing Art.

You can send me some for the freezer if you have some spare.

Good idea.

Art, do you seal them along the top or the side?

Omah, Yes, l should have taken a pic last week when l made them but l didnít know l was going to start this thread until today!

Itís the beaten egg brushed on them that makes them look so nice! I will take a pic the next time.

Mups, It depends if l put the mixture in the middle or near the side as to how l fold them. Itís usually at the side.

I think itís using the finely cut raw onion that gives them the lovely flavour. I have a Kenwood mini chopper that is great for quickly chopping onions and carrots etc.

Yes. I thought the raw onion was a nice touch.

There's a shop near us that sells the most delicious lamb samosas, and you can see little bits of onion in the spicy minced lamb like it was added much later rather than at the beginning. I'm going to try it with my minced chuck steak ... I have portions of this in the freezer to be served as different dishes ... beans & Tabasco (Sth American), pasta & Parmesan (Italian), mash & whatever (Brit cottage pie).
