First Try At Making Meat Pasties

Hi all. I roasted a leg of lamb a few days ago and had leftovers. I am planning on making Sctch Broth with the bone but still had quite a bit of meat. The thread on Mutton pies inspired me.
I sauted some chopped onion in a pot and added diced carrot, potatoes and parsnip. I added a splash of chicken broth and cooked the veggies until just done. I then added the cut up lamb and leftover gravy(made with a little red wine).

 
I made a pie crust with 1 1/8 cups flour, 1/2 tsp salt, one stick butter cut up and some ice water. It was enough to make six pasties.
I brushed them with a little milk before baking.

 
I started them at 400 degrees for tem minutes and then reduced the temp to 350 for the remaining 15 or 20 minutes.

They came out great! I will be using this idea for leftovers in the future. I really want to do a chicken one and a pot roast one too!

    Good job on your pasties! The recipes I use are for beef pasties and the meat is not pre-cooked. I simply cut the beef, potatoes, onions, and sometimes carrots into small cubes  - about 1/2-inch square. This mixture is stirred together and seasoned with s&p and whatever dried herbs I feel like adding. Then the pastry is rolled and filled prior to baking. A little ketchup is a nice condiment to have with the pies.

    Mom??? " />  Seriously, this is how my Nana, Grammy & now Mom make them. Piecrust, cheapest ground beef you can find, diced onion, carrot, potato, rutabaga (sometimes, not always) and served with ketchup. Now, I hate ketchup. Hate. But I won't eat a pastie without it.
     
    Good job Agnes!!!

    LOL, detective! Not your mom, but thanks for the compliment. Some years ago when I researched recipes for pasties on the web, it was implied that the method I described was the authentic way to make pasties. I never saw any for ground beef....strange.... Some included turnip or rutabaga, but I couldn't bring myself to buy a rutabaga. ;o)

    I think Nana wasn't willing to cut up roast beef. She used that for sandwiches for her kids lunches. Nana's mother must have made them with ground beef, too, because Nana's sister is still alive & that is how she makes them as well.

    Wow,  what a great restaurant and loved reading the selections as well as pasty history.  You're lucky to have this place close by.  Inspired me to want to make my own someday soon.
