    Is anyone willing to share a good pastie recipe?

    Every year I have my mother in law buy pasties at the Finn festival for me. I would like a recipe that is authentic so I can make good ones at home. I like the ones with parsnips and swedes(rutabagas) in them. I have not found a recipe that tastes as good as the Finn one.

    She always serves them with beef gravy. Is that traditional? She is 3/4 german and 1/4 portugese and so does not have a family recipe. She learned to love pasties growing up in Detroit in the 50's when there were alot of ethnic neighborhoods.

    Re: Is anyine willing to share a good pastie recipe?



    I did not find any recipes that seemed perfect so I just guessed. Some recipes said that carrots were 'low class' some recommended MSG . Some articles mentioned fruit in part of the pastie. I used a firm all fruit Fig preserves. Tasty but it would be easier to do them seperately. That corner of the pastie wanted to burn by the time the rest was finished baking.

    I used commercial pie crust. Lard crusts are hard to find but my piecrusts tend to be too soft for something like this.

    I used 2 parsnips, 2 carrots, 2 yukon gold potatoes, 1 onion, 1/2 small rutabaga (swede). All diced 1/3 "
    4-6 oz chuck steak, 4-6 oz pork shoulder steak 1/2" dice
    I mixed them in a large bowl with 1 cup of vegetable stock and 1 tsp allspice.

    I divided the crusts into four sections and put 1 1/2 cup mixture.
    Cover with another crust piece. Crimp edges. Makes 8 with enough filling left over for a serving of soup.

    Bake at 350F for 45-60 minutes.

    If you double wrap them in foil they freeze very well.

    By the way That is not my picture. I keep forgetting to take a picture until after I eat.http://www.gailmartin.com/gails%20ki...nish%20Pasties has an Ok recipe but I do not like powdered bullion.

    Try cooks.com. It's got at least a few recipes for just about everything you can imagine.

    Although, a good pasty just seems like shepherd's pie in a biscuit dough.

    My grandmother always makes corned beef pasties which taste pretty good. There's a recipe for them here:
