Cornish pasties


  • Preheat oven to 180°C fan forced (200°C normal). 
  • Combine the onion, potatoes, turnip, steak, seasonings and Worcestershire with your hands. 
  • In another bowl, whisk the egg with milk. 
  • Cut a large round in a pastry sheet and place it on a lightly floured workbench. Spoon a quarter of the mixture in the centre, brush around the edges with egg wash and bring up the sides to meet in the centre. Then crimp the edges to seal and place the pasty on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Repeat the process. 
  • Make a small cut in each side of the pasties, brush them all over with egg wash and cook in the oven for about 35-40 mins. (If browning too much, loosely cover with a piece of foil.) 
  • Serve with a good dollop of your favourite pickles or chutney.
