Ingredients

  • 1 lb (450g) lean beef, diced
  • 2 large potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 1 carrot, diced
  • 1/2 cup (75g) frozen peas
  • 2 tablespoons (30ml) Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 sheets of ready-made puff pastry
  • 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the diced beef, potatoes, onion, carrot, peas, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. Mix well until all ingredients are evenly distributed.
  3. Roll out the puff pastry sheets on a lightly floured surface. Using a large round cutter or a small plate as a guide, cut out circles from the pastry sheets.
  4. Place a generous portion of the beef filling onto one half of each pastry circle, leaving a border around the edges.
  5. Fold the pastry over the filling to create a semi-circle shape. Press the edges together firmly to seal, then crimp with a fork to create a decorative edge.
  6. Place the pasties on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush the tops with beaten egg for a golden finish.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the pasties are puffed and golden brown.
  8. Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly before serving. Enjoy hot or cold, with your favorite condiments or on its own.
