Cornish Pasty Ingredients - Recipe

New For the Pastry ( This is for Shortcrust)

* One and a half Cups Plain Flour
* Lard or vegetable fat
* Pinch of salt
* Water

For the pasty filling

* Chuck steak or skirt
* Two Large potatoes
* Half large turnip
* One large onion
* Salt and pepper to taste
* Water


The Pastry
Place flour and salt in a bowl, rub in the fat, until the mixture is so fine that it falls through the fingers. Tip mixture onto a lightly floured table top. With your index finger make a well in the centre of the mixture. Add water a little at a time until it forms a pliable but stiff dough.

The Cornish Pasty Filling
Finely chop the steak. Dice the potato, turnip and onion. You may prefer to slice them. Add seasoning. Mix all in a bowl or to be really authentic use your kitchen table top.

Using a floured table top roll out half the dough to a circle the size of a plate. Make a mound of the filling in the centre of the dough. Dampen round the edge of the dough with either water, or milk. Fold over the dough, to make a half moon shape, crimping the edges. Make a slit to let out steam. Brush with beaten egg to glaze.

Cooking your Cornish Pasty Place on lightly greased metal baking tray in the middle of a preheated oven, for around 40 minutes at 450 F . The pasty is cooked when their undersides turn brown and crisp.

Pisky,

That looks like a puertorrican pastelillo, but we fry ours and we use ground beef for feeling, sea food you name it.

Do you have any puertorrican background? ha, ha, ha,

I'm making this tomorrow for valentine's day..

Except i'm taking out the steak...

Had the meat pies at the scottish/irish festival last year and they were to die for.Ok I wouldn't go that far but pretty damn close.. they were gooood.

I think they had peas and carrots in them as well and there was ground up beef instead of steak chunks.

None at all, but I certainly think the pasty is worth trying out

They sound like Scotch pies - very nice but not the same as Cornish Pasties.

That looks interesting! It looks kind of like apple pie to me, anything is worth a try, once!

Pixy,

I tried it out and it was pretty fun making it, I took pictures of my first experience with the pixy pasty recipe, It's still cooking so I can't take the end result photo until later.

here they are in order:
ps: that was the first time making dough on my own so I pretty much winged it!

Hey, I recommended Goya pastry disks for that to TL for her adventure....so we're on the same wavelength!


I made those this past weekend...had some left over king crab legs. Added some sofrito ( peppers onion garlic spice base ) and fried them up.


Good Stuff!

It was missing some seasoning... I didn't know what to use to give it that little kick.

I actually enjoyed the mix, just carrots potatoes and fresh deli beef, I added worchestershire sauch to the hamburg, some garlic, but it wasn't spicey..

What do you add to something like that?

I definitely want to make that again, it was easy, fun, and tasty, and it serves alot for the price you pay.

Bout Time,

i'll have to try your idea too, sounds yummy!

oh yeah and eoh, your funny... ha... ha.... ha.. ;p

I'd say you could add some shallots or onions...you could use bacon drippings to cook the veggies in....maybe add some sage, and of course always make sure you have enough S&p.... as BT suggested, some sofrito would be good too...you could just add that to what you used before - Goya makes it or you could make it yourself in a blender....

It does sound pretty tasty.....It reminds me of the Lebanese stuffed meat pies my aunt makes....It's your basic dough, a little yeasty, with ground beef, onions and lots of Pignolias (pine nuts).....Mmmmmmm

Thats the other spice I added; "sage" but I don't think it made the grade I was looking for.

I've never herd of sofrito is that a spice I can find in my grocery aisle?

what about curry would that add a kick?

I knew it was missing something and still I can't put my finger on it

Sofrito's pretty simple to make....and it makes a difference if you make it as opposed to buy it, but if you do buy it, get:

Should be down the "ethnic foods" aisle....I love how almost all stores have one of those now....

Basically, it's just bell peppers, onions, garlic, cilantro and oregano all sautéed and then blended....Good stuff - Instant flavor....

Now with curry...hell...you could throw some of that on a rocky mountain oyster and I'd eat it like it was going out of style!


Umm....I dunno though - Lots and lots of different possibilities....Some cheese would be good in it too - You Northerners and your cheese....maybe that's what you're thinking of.....lol

You know what would be really good? I've done this before with beef for pot pies.....Marinate it in some Guinness....Gives it a real kick!

nah it's not cheese. I have to be in the right mood for cheese. Sofrito sounds really yummy but still it's not that kick I was looking for.

Neither was beer but it sounds interesting.

It's a seasoning you put on beef I dunno when I was at the scot festival last year it had that certain something that made it good, I know it was a seasoning I just can't put my finger on it and it's driving me nuts, i'm having a hard time letting it go. It's on the tip of my tongue but it's not comin' maybe when pixy sees this he'll know what i'm talking about.

But i'm definitely going to try that beer thing, I love adding beer to food, steaks, soups, and pizza... eating a slice of pizza, chewing it then putting beer in your mouth so you swish it around... oh yeha, just thinkin about it makes me want some....isss sooo good.

Thanks! You know, it had to of been one of the easiest to make, skill-wise, but I've gotten the most positive responses from it out of all the ones I've made...

Gotta love The Clash

Oh I know, all the cd's i've burned all have clash songs on them. i can't help but replay some songs, i'd have to say my favorite songs are coka cola, should i stay or should i go, guns of brixton, rock the casbah, love kills, and revolution rock.. my husband is so sick of them now, they used to be his favorite too until I came along....



I wonder if Rancid's tim armstrong tries to imitate his voice because strummer's voice is so unique. That is one thing I love about the clash is stummer's voice, it's so sexy.. When I was younger I got my friends to like rancid and we'd sit on the school bus and sing ruby soho and when we'd say soho we'd spit on eachother cuz thats when tim armstrong sounded like he was spitting all over the place...memories.ahhh

LMAO....My best school bus memories are of stomping and clapping to the beat of "We Will Rock You" and pissing the school bus driver off EVERY morning and afternoon to the point of him taking us back to the school....


Rock the Casbah man.....That song is my all time fav - It has such a unique quality to it....

Why.....just like Cornish Pasties.......
