BBQ pork & shiitake pastries

Method

 

  • Preheat oven to 180°C fan forced (200°C normal).
  • Soak the shiitakes in hot water for about 30 mins. Then drain well and slice, discarding the stalks.
  • Heat a little oil in a heavy-bottomed pan and gently sauté the sliced mushrooms with the garlic and ginger until tender, regularly stirring.
  • Add the diced pork and spring onions. Briefly toss and then add the sweet vinegar, soy, Hoisin and 2 tbsp of the pork sauce (if available). Mix well and cook until thick and fragrant.
  • Beat the egg with the milk in a small bowl.
  • Cut 4 rounds in each pastry sheet and place 8 of them on 1-2 oiled baking trays. Then brush the egg wash around the pastry edges and spoon a dollop of the mixture (about 1 heaped tbsp) in the middle, leaving an edge. Place the remaining pastry rounds on top, crimp the edges and brush the tops with more egg wash.
  • Then cook the pastries in the oven for about 7-8 mins until golden and risen.
