Simply Delish ~ Cornish Pasty

Hi all,

Whitesnake has been cooking up a storm again...YUM!


225 g. (8 oz.) blade of beef or rump steak
350 g. (12 oz.) shortcrust pastry
1 medium onion
1 medium potato
1 small turnip
1 beaten egg or milk, to glaze
Salt and black pepper

To Prepare

Preheat oven to 220 degrees centigrade (425 F)(gas 7)
Cut the meat into 1 cm. (1/2 inch) cubes
Cut the potato and turnip into 0.5 cm. (1/4 inch) dice, finely chop the onion
Place the meat, potato, turnip, onion, and seasoning in a bowl, and mix well
Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface, each piece to about 15-18 cm. (6-7 inches).
Trim using the edge of a small plate as a template
Divide the filling between each round
Brush the edges with water and fold over the edges of pastry on each
Seal well, creating a fluted edge to the pastry
Place the pastries on a baking tray, flute the edge to the pastry
Brush each of them with beaten egg or milk
Bake for 40-45 minutes, until golden brown
Serve hot or cold

It looks delicious. I would have to fill it with vegetables. I don't know if that would ruin it.

Whitesnake said...

Nah JJ just cut up veggies so they are chunky and season ta taste. precook and let cool wrap in pastry and away ya go...
Even frozen chunky veggies will do.
