The beef + potato pasties (short A sound, not long A!) were a hit!
I used this recipe (all her recipes look good!). Other pasty recipes I looked at use pie crust, but I liked the idea of using puff pastry instead (I mean, really, who wouldn't?). Also, she's from the UK, so... legit recipe!
I made a couple changes, the biggest one that I seared my beef before wrapping it up - because I'm weird about meat if it's not cooked at a REALLY high temperature. I also didn't cut circles from the pastry. Wanting to get as many as I could out of the two sheets of puff pastry, I just divided them into quarters and made it work.
Also, I forgot the onion. I just did. No regrets, though, really.
I did include the rutabega! I've never cooked this before, and I'm still not sure I know how it tastes because the flavors all mingled so well. I will have to try some more rutabega recipes... I think it would be good in Indian curries...
All folded up. Didn't even try to make them pretty. Can you tell that I was being cautious with the filling at the beginning, and trying to use it up at the end?
All golden... Seriously, this is NOT crescent dough, folks.
Served with ketchup because Sarah said so.
So flaky and rich and DELICIOUS! This meal felt decadent. I love that you sprinkle a little flour and put a pat of butter inside - it really does make it's own buttery gravy!
Oh my goodness. So good.
Luckily, no one wanted the leftovers... I had a really yummy lunch today!
