Corned Beef Pasties - Hearty, simple and quick | Fuss Free Flavours

Following on from yesterday’s quiche here is another easy favourite – and one that is perfect post-lockdown for picnics and lunch boxes! I have given both wheat free and std shortcrust pastry recipes.

Wheat Free Pastry

  • 8 oz gluten free plain flour, plus extra for rolling out
  • 1 tsp xantham gum
  • 3.5 to 4 oz plus cold butter, or hard (block) margarine plus extra for greasing dish
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1-2 tbsp cold water
  • Pinch of salt

Method

  • Sift the flour together with a pinch of salt in a large bowl.
  • Rub in the butter until you have a soft breadcrumb texture.
  • Add the beaten egg, using a pallete or round bladed knife to mix.
  • Add enough cold water to make the crumb mixture come together to form a firm dough – remembering that GF recipes tend to be dry so do make sure you add enough water without making it soggy.
  • Cover and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Standard wheat flour pastry 

  • 8oz plain flour, plus extra for rolling out
  • 4oz cold butter, or hard (block) margarine plus extra for greasing dish
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1-2 tbsp cold water

Method

  • Sift the flour together with a pinch of salt in a large bowl.
  • Rub in the butter until you have a soft breadcrumb texture.
  • Add enough cold water a few drops at a time until it comes together as a firm dough
  • Cover and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Ingredients

  • 2- 3 potatoes peeled and cubed
  • 1 lb corned beef, cut into small cubes
  • 4 medium carrots, cut into small cubes or a few tbsp green peas
  • 1 medium onion, diced small
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
  • I beaten egg (optional)

Method

  • Peel and coarsely chop the potatoes.
  • In a bowl combine the cubed corned beef, chopped potato, cubed turmip or carrot, onion,, salt and pepper.
  • Set aside.
  • Divide the dough into equal portions – makes 6 medium or many mini pasties
  • roll out each portion of dough into circles.
  • Place about 1 cup of the filling onto one half of each circle of dough
  • Dampen the edges slightly
  • Fold the pastry over the filling to make a half circle.
  • Crimp the pastry edges together.
  • Prick the pastry to allow steam to escape in cooking.
  • Carefully transfer pasties to a lined baking sheet.
  • Brush pastry with egg if using.
  • Cook at 200c or gas mark 6 until golden brown about 45 minutes.

 

Nothing goes with corned beef pasties quite like tomato ketchup!
