    we made 25 pasties yesterday

    if your not from way up here they are a kind of a meat pie folded over and sealed kind of like a calzone (spelling?) . Venison, taters, rudibaga, carrots and onion. Probably makes the house smell better then cooking anything else in the world.

    Do you make those with beans, or without?

    That sounds awesome.

    My sister made a great sausage and onion pie recently. Basically a sheet of pie dough with a thin layer of sautéed onions and crumbled sausage. Pie dough sheet on top with a rolled and crimped edge. It was awesome.
    Dying to see your recipe.

    You can't mine deep with a 5' water table. Past-ies are quite different than the old Cornish miner Pas-ties. Butte's traditional are only beef and potatoes, feuds are battled as to whether you drench in catsup or gravy. I add onion, garlic, green olives to mine and vary the meat. South Americans call it an empanada but it is all about a meal you can carry in your pocket. British baking show a few years back had them make a middle English style of one end sweet and one end savory. It's all meat pies and all good in my book.

    My Grandma made them with beef suet in the crust, the scent of them baking made me salivate like a dog! Daughter in Az has a pastie place by her house which she frequents due to her Yooper roots. When she comes home she usually come up with a menu which almost always includes them.

    Lloyd,

    I to make up a batch or two of venison pasties every year. Question. What do you use for a crust recipe? Most of the really good pasties I've eaten have had a slightly tough, almost leathery crust texture which I like best. I use a standard pie crust recipe with lard or shortening. To get a tougher texture, I over work the crust which you would never do for a pie. Comes out better, but not the same.

    Some like a beef gravy on them but the traditional way is smothered in ketsup.

    crust advice? youd have to ask my wife. I shoot the deer and grind it and help chop veggys but she does the crust and puts them together and bakes them.

    Cornish Pastie

    For the Pastry (This is for Shortcrust)

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

    For the pastie filling

    · Chuck steak or skirt, sliced and sauteed
    · Two Large potatoes, lightly boiled and diced
    · Two large carrots, diced
    · One large onion, diced
    · Salt and pepper to taste
    · Water

    Cornwall Pastie Recipe Method

    The Pastry

    Place flour and salt in a bowl, and then 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 Pastie Filling

    Finely chop the steak. Dice the potato, carrots, 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 Pastie

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

    Cornish Pastie History and Folklore - Cornwall

    There is as much folklore around the Cornish Pastie as there are recipe variations. One such tale said it was bad luck for fishermen to take a pastie on board a boat, but then again I know a modern day skipper that 'loves his pasties'. A very famous photograph from the late Nineteenth Century shows a group of tin miners at 'Croust Time' (that is meal time to you and I) tucking into very large pasties. (Incidentally the mining boom was largely over by the 1860's) Such pasties would have meat at one end and a fruit filling at the other.

    Whatever the truth, there is no doubt that the pasty formed an important part of many working Cornishman's diet, be they miners, farmers, or fishermen. With the decline of the mining industry in Cornwall many Cornishmen were forced to emigrate, as far afield as the USA, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, where they took the Cornish pastie recipe with them.
    I may have passed my "Best Before" date, but I haven't reached my "Expiry" date!

    My wife just made these about two weeks ago, and I think they were the best pasties I ever had, and I've had a few, living in Cornish country in Southwest Wis. I will have to talk to her about the recipe as the crust was amazing. I put ketchup on mine.

    Lioyd those look very tasty. They remind me of meat pies I always eat when I go to Natchitoches Louisiana to visit my kinfolks. Lard makes the best crust...……………………………….curdog

    Made a small batch today, just 6 as an experiment. I've had meat pies before, but they did not have the veggies in them. This made me a little curious. These turned out really well, but I got the crust just a little thicker IMO, than what I envisioned. Have to work on my crust skills. LOL. The mixture I used was meat, potatoes, carrots, onions, and rutabaga. I made the whole recipe of meat with thyme, basil, garlic, salt and pepper. My wife and I both agree, that mixture by itself is delicious. The crust was 2 cups flour, 2/3 cups lard, couple pinches of salt and water to moisten. Lard may not be healthy, as some people believe, but it's darn sure healthier than the fake lard. Like real butter is better for you than oleo.
    I'm not a big ketchup fan, so I just ate mine dry. I'll try a good gravy, maybe. Nothing wrong with it by itself, I'll tell you.
    Took a picture of them, but for some reason, site refuses to upload it. Dunno, maybe too big a file. Shouldn't be.
    AHAA! Success! Resized the little booger.

    anymore those designer pastie shops up here make them so many ways that about anything goes. One thing I do like is a some cheddar cheese inside mine. Also make sure you stick a small slice of butter 1/4 inch or so inside to keep the mixture moist.
