Beef Pasties Recipe. Simply put, a pasty is a handheld pie. Guest Blogger Jon Bennion (@intermediatechef) explains the pasty in this week's blog, and provides a delicious beef and root vegetable comfort food recipe for us all to try.
Pasties are a traditional beef and root vegetable hand pie from Cornwall, England. In Montana, they are practically a sacred meal for those from Butte - a mining town that drew immigrants from all over the world over a hundred years ago. Miners took these delicious pies down with them in the underground copper mines and filled up mid-day with a hearty meal so they could continue their work.
The essentials of beef pasties are quite simple when you look at old Cornish recipes. A crispy and simple crust, a tender cut of beef, potatoes and rutabaga. We had our good friend @intermediatechef, a local Montanan, provide his own recipe that brings a few more tasty elements to the pasty party. He recently made these for a group of his friends when they dined outdoors in the cold Montana winter for a “pandemic pasty party.” Him and his family are great Felton Angus Beef customers, and he gladly shared his recipe so you can have your own pasty party this winter.
This recipe for beef pasties makes 8 pasties.
