Cornish Pies {meat & vegs}

Filled with meat and vegetables - that is what a Cornish pie should be. I am sure there are certain requirements for it to be a real Cornish Pie, but this is my requirements.

As I mentioned the other day in my post Steak, Bacon & Beer Pies, we can not buy decent individual meat pies any more. Just the thought of what goes in them, makes me wonder these days. I do not want to spoil your appetite, so I will not share what I am wondering about ...

These are also great to make as cocktail pies, which has been a favorite for longer than I can remember, medium, large or cocktail size will be a great addition to a lunch box, as they are equally delicious warm or cold !

Feel free to add more of the sauces if you like a saucier meat pie.

Cornish Pies {meat & vegs}

recipe made 8 medium/large pies

1 TB Oil
1 Large Onion, peeled and chopped finely
700g Ground Beef {Mince}   -  I only use extra-lean
3/4 cup Fresh White Bread crumbs
2 cans (410g each) Mixed Vegetables, drained and rinsed
2 TB Parsley, chopped
2 TB Worcestershire Sauce
1/4 cup BBQ Sauce  
1/4 cup Tomato Sauce 
Salt & Pepper, to taste
2 Rolls Frozen Puff Pastry, defrosted
1 Egg, beaten

1.) Pre-heat the oven to 200 deg C (400 deg F) - line two baking sheets with baking paper.
2.) Heat the Oil in a large pan, saute the Onion until soft - add the Ground Beef - stir-fry until the meat is no longer pink.
3.) Add the White Bread crumbs, Mixed Vegetables and Parsley to the meat - stir well to combine.
4.) Add the Worcestershire Sauce, BBQ Sauce and Tomato Sauce - mix well - season with Salt & Pepper to taste - simmer 10 - 15 minutes over low heat - remove from heat and let cool completely.
5.) Roll out the Puff Pastry and cut each sheet into 4 rectangles - add filling to one half of each rectangle, leaving a small border to close - flip over the other half of the pastry and press all the sides using a fork to seal the edges - cut away excess pastry - brush the pastries with the beaten Egg.
6.) Bake 25 - 30 minutes until golden brown and puffed.

Serve with a salad or two.

I hope you will enjoy this as much as my family did.
