December 21, 2018

Ingredients

  • 1 x 500g pack of pre-made shortcrust pastry.
  • 300g (roughly) of leftover beef, diced or sliced.
  • 4 potatoes
  • 1 swede
  • 2 onions
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 egg
  • pinch of salt & pepper

Method

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200ºc
  2. Divide the block of shortcrust pastry into 6 pieces
  3. Roll out each piece, large enough to cut out around a side plate.


Then repeat these steps for each pasty.
  1. Lay thinly sliced potato across the centre.
  2. Top with diced onion, carrot and swede.
  3. Top with your left over beef, cut into slices or chunks and season with salt and black pepper.
  4. Top the meat with further slices of potato to keep the beef moist.
  5. Brush the pastry lightly with beaten egg and bring up sides to meet over the filling.
  6. Press the edges firmly together to seal.
  7. Crimp the edge using your thumb and forefinger.
  8. Brush all over with beaten egg.
Bake your batch of pasties for 15 minutes then reduce the oven temperature to 180ºc and continue cooking for further 20-25 minutes.
