BBQ pork pastries

Method

  • Soak the shiitakes in warm-hot water for about 30 mins. Then drain well, discard the stalks and dice. 
  • Heat a little oil in a wok (or large non-stick pan) and gently sauté the ginger and garlic until softened, regularly stirring. 
  • Add the spring onions and pork. Briefly toss and then add the sweet vinegar, soy and Hoisin. Toss well and cook for a couple of minutes until thick. Taste for seasoning and set aside to cool. 
  • When ready, preheat oven to 180°C fan forced (200°C normal).
  • Beat together the milk and egg. 
  • Cut each pastry sheet into 4 and paint the edges with the egg wash. Then mound a heaped teaspoon of the pork mixture on one quarter and fold the pastry over in triangles. Crimp the edges with a fork and place on 1-2 lightly oiled baking trays. Repeat the process. 
  • Brush the pastry tops with egg wash, sprinkle with sesame seeds and cook in the oven for about 10 mins until golden brown.
  • nb. Any size pastries can be made.
