Minced Beef Pasty

Updated: Mar 31, 2020


  1. Shortcrust Pastry

  2. 2 red onions chopped small

  3. 3 carrots diced

  4. 1 small sweet potato diced

  5. 1 packet of minced beef – 500g

  6. 1 beef stock cube

I made some shortcrust pastry this evening, had quite a lot left over and was looking through a magazine and spotted some cornish pasties…. oh heaven, I love a pasty especially on holiday!  I know really it should be made with flaky pastry but surely I can make it with shortcrust.

So rumaging through my fridge, I came up with a couple of onions, some carrots, a sweet potato and a packet of minced beef, that will do nicely. I sauteed the chopped onions then added the meat and vegetables. I added a beef stock cube and cooked it long and low!

I then rolled out my pastry into rough circles and added the delicious meat filling into the middle, draining off any excessive liquid/gravy. I then pulled up the sides of the pastry pinching the edges together resembling a pasty and brushed over with some milk.

I popped them in the oven 180C for about 30 mins until they looked golden brown. Very easy and really tasty!
