About this recipe: I first began to make these pasties for my kids' lunches. They make great snacks or small meals.


Serves: 6 

  • 1 (500g) pack ready rolled shortcrust pastry
  • 300g (11 oz) thinly sliced potatoes
  • 2 onions, sliced
  • 225g (8 oz) steak, thinly sliced and cut in 1cm pieces
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper
  • 30g (1 oz) butter

Prep:20min  ›  Cook:1hr  ›  Ready in:1hr20min 

  1. Divide pastry in three equal parts. Roll a third of the dough to make a 20x40cm rectangle. Cut to make two 20cm squares. Place on baking tray. Repeat with other two thirds of pastry.
  2. Arrange layer of potatoes on half of each pastry square, top with layer of onion and then with meat. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and dot with butter.
  3. Moisten pastry edges with cold water and fold over to make triangles; press edges together to make tight seal. A tight seal retains steam and makes juicy pasties.
  4. Bake at 190 C / Gas mark 5 for 1 hour or until meat is tender.

Make ahead...

Simply allow the pasties to fully cool, and then pack in freezer bags. Freeze for up to 3 months.

I found this to be quick and easy, I normally use my old recipe handed down through the family from yonks ago but is time consuming.and these tasted top rate.the second batch I made used a dollop of duck fat instead of butter and they were mucho nice. - 11 Feb 2012
