Beef Pasties Recipe - Cook it Real Good (1)

Beef Pasties are a quick and easy dinner that this whole family will love. Using my delicious savoury mince recipe and some light, golden and flaky puff pastry, you'll have irresistible pasties on the table in no time.

This isn't your grandmother's pastie recipe. For starters, my pasties have flavour. Yep - I'm going there!

Traditional pasties are notoriously flavourless. What would you expect from putting plain raw mince and chopped vegetables in some pastry?

This recipe uses my savoury mince as the filling and it really shines in pasties, plus it's a great way to repurpose leftovers! Just try and stop at one.

Why you'll love this recipe...

  • Full of flavour.
  • Quick and easy.
  • A great way to repurpose leftover savoury mince.

What's in a pastie?

Traditional Cornish pasties are pretty simple. They generally use beef mince / ground beef, onion, swede and potato.

Of course there's plenty of variations on this. Some recipes put raw ingredients directly into pastry and cook in the oven. Others recommend cooking first, then placing in the pastry.

I personally find traditional pasties a bit flavourless, so I use a savoury mince that's cooked first and packed with flavour.

What pastry are pasties made from?

Pasties can be made from either puff pastry or shortcut pastry. I personally prefer puffy pastry as I love how light and flaky it is, but the beauty of this recipe is you can really use either! I use store-bought frozen puff pastry for ease.

Spoon a tablespoon or so of savoury mince into the middle of each pastry round, brush the edges with the egg wash then bring the edges together to form a semi-circle. Crimp the edges together with your fingers to seal the filling inside.

Can you freeze pasties?

Absolutely. Once cooled, cooked pasties can be frozen in an airtight container for up to 3 months.

How do you reheat cooked pasties?

Preheat the oven to 180C / 350F, and place frozen pasties on a lined baking tray. Bake for 10 minutes, or until warmed through.

You can microwave them but I don't recommend this as the pastry tends to go soggy.
