Behold the mighty pasty!
Again not going to go into the ‘historics’ of the pasty nor the consistent battle of ingredients and cultural differences!
Sheesh! Who would figure that it was so complicated to just write about a handheld ‘turnover’!!!
A bit of left over steak from the other day.. (always keep the leftovers) ..Chopped.. Fresh thyme.. A can of mixed veg, these small cans are just the business , they have spuds carrots swede and peas.. All in a perfect sized can!
All mixed together with some veal jus and some of the spring water juice from the can.. Just enough to loosen it up a piece..
Got my brother in-law to whoop up a short crust pastry..
Cut into disks..
Filling put in the middle.. Pastry turned over and pressed together with a fork..
Brushed with egg wash and popped into the oven..
The best thing is that all the ingredients are already cooked so it’s just a simple task of letting the pastry cook through..
Then left to cool..
