Cornish Pasties III

Rated as 4.17 out of 5 Stars

"The Cornish Pasties made with the lard are the best. It makes the crust and the rest of the meat pie taste great. Here is the recipe that I grew up with and is the best pastie you will ever eat. You will need 12 9-inch pie pans for this recipe (if you don't have that many, you can buy aluminum pans or make the pasties in batches)."

  1. To Make Crust: Place flour and salt in a large bowl. Mix well, then cut in lard until mixture is crumbly. Stir in water, mixing just until dough forms a ball. Allow dough to rest in refrigerator while you make filling.
  2. To Make Filling: Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add vegetable oil, then onions. If using carrots and rutabagas, add them now. Saute vegetables until soft, about 10 minutes.
  3. Add ground beef, ground pork, and green onions to skillet. Saute until meat is no longer pink. Add salt and pepper to taste. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  4. Divide dough into 12 portions and roll out each one to fit a 9-inch pie plate.
  5. Place a pastry circle in a pie pan. Fill one half of pan with meat filling. Dot with some of the butter or margarine. Pat edge of crust with water, then fold over other half of crust. Trim edge, then crimp to seal. Make steam vents in top of crust. Brush with milk. Repeat process until all of dough and all of filling are gone.
  6. Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes or until crust is golden brown.

These are terrific. Even my 6 & 10 year old loved them - they each ate 2 and they're really large! I substituted some potato for half the rutabaga so they wouldn't taste it - but I did!

This may be called a Cornish Pastie but traditional Cornish Pasties are filled only with onions,potatoes and chuck. These days all sorts of additional nonsense is added which distracts from the ...

I was so excited to make these pasties! The filling tastes just like the pasties at the local cornish pasty shop. I used chicken instead of beef and pork. Also I left out the butter and WISH ...

I didn't use rutabegas and pork but added white wine, dill, marjoram and sage to the meat mixture. I also made a mushroom gravy to pour over them and everyone loved it!

These were very easy and very good. I used potatoes and carrots and added some minced garlic to the meat while it was cooking. We liked eating ours with a jar of gravy. Ketchup was good too. The...

This was incredibly dry! I had to smother it in gravy and the others in ketchup for them to be eatable.

Very good! I did not use the rutabegas because I did not think the kiddos would eat them. But the filling was great and the crust was tender and flaky!!
