These were basically 'fast food' for miners in the old days - portable lunches that included meat, vegetables and potatoes. My grandmother used to make them and we'd have Cornish Pastie night. Don't let their simple makeup fool you - because however you spell them, they rule.
- 1/2 large potato, diced small
- 1/2 medium onion, diced small
- 3/4 pound steak (your choice) cubed small
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1/4 cup freshly chopped parsley
- 2 refrigerated pie crusts
- 2 tablespoons milk
- gravy - optional
- Add first 5 ingredients to a large bowl, season with salt & pepper & mix well.
- Roll out pie crusts and cut into 12-4" rounds.
- Divide the filling between half the rounds, and cover with other 6 rounds.
- Turn edges of bottom round up to seal in top round - does this make sense? You're making little packages.
- Make 3 little slits in the top of each, and brush lightly with milk.
- Bake at 425 for about 30 minutes or until lightly browned.
- Serve with any kind of beef gravy - I add a little more parsley to mine.
