My grandmother used to cook pasties regularly and even now, when I have one of these I have memories of my childhood come flooding back. Fluffy puff pastry, juicy filling (served with tomato sauce of course). Perfect for a cold winter in Ballarat.

Ingredients (makes 10 depending on size)

  • 1kg blade steak
  • 1kg potatoes
  • 2 med sized carrots
  • 1 parsnip
  • 1cup frozen peas
  • 2 med onions
  • salt and pepper
  • puff pastry sheets
  • 1 egg (beaten)


  1. Dice the steak, potatoes, carrots, parsnip, onions into 1cm size cubes. Keep the onions apart.
  2. Lightly cook the onion until soft, but not brown.
  3. mix in all vegies and meat until well combined
  4. salt and pepper well.
  5. lay out thawed pastry sheet, using a round plate as a template cut out a circle and place mixture into middle. Close over the pastry but first lightly brush one side with the beaten egg mix. Pinch sides together, pierce pastry a few times with fork. Place on baking tray.
  6. Repeat until you feel you have enough to feed an army... seems every time I make these friends and family come from everywhere.
  7. Baste with the egg mix, cook in hot over til pastry puffed and golden brown.
  8. ### If you have left over meat/vegie mix, cook mix up in a pan, add gravy mix(water) and you can now use the mix as a savoury pie alternative.
