With the cooler weather setting in, these Lamb and roast vegetable pasties are sure to hit the spot. The recipe is from Karen Martini on Better Homes & Gardens - http://au.lifestyle.yahoo.com/better-homes-gardens/tv-and-video/video/watch/19137972/karen-lamb-pasties-ep-35-27-09-13/aulifestyle-better-homes-and-garden-cooking-with-karen/
Sweat off the leek , onion and garlic, season with salt and pepper.
I couldn't buy lamb mince so I bought forequarter chops and took the meat off the bone then whizzed in the food processor.
Cool the leek mixture and add 1/2 cup peas and a handful of fresh parsley.
Brown the mince until well cooked. I added a bit of curry powder at this stage to add more of a kick. Cool off.
These are the roasted potatoes, carrots and pumpkin...tossed in with the leek mix...
Now combine all the ingredients and add in an egg and cheese, mixing gently but well.
Follow the way Karen makes the pasties using puff pastry ... it took me until the 6th one to get the fold over right (bottom right). Brush with beaten egg. Make sure the mixture has cooled otherwise your pastry will just melt and may cause you tears and a tantrum!
Once baked, they were delicious served with a saladand some sweet chilli sauce. The recipe made 10 so I have put 4 uncooked ones into the freezer to pull out another day. We enjoyed the cooked ones again for lunch today too! Gve them a go!
