Cooking time: 
30-45 minutes
Serves: 
2
Preparation time: 
15-30 minutes
Ingredients: 

1 x 320g pack Jus-Rol ready rolled all butter puff pastry, (thawed if frozen)
2 small fillet steaks of beef,
chopped into 1cm cubes
1 small red onion, very finely chopped
80g stilton cheese
4 chestnut mushrooms, finely chopped
Small handful fresh parsley, finely chopped  
1tsp salt
1tsp pepper
1tsp Worcestershire sauce
½ beef stock cube
1tbsp olive oil
1 small egg, beaten to glaze

Equipment: 

Pyrex Non Stick Metal Baking Tray

Method: 
  1. Preheat the oven to 220C/200C fan/gas mark 7. Place the beef and chopped onion into a mixing bowl and crumble in the stilton.
  2. Then stir through the chopped mushrooms, parsley, salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce and stock cube, and the olive oil.  
  3. Unroll the Jus-Rol pastry and slice in half across the width, so you end up with two rectangles of pastry.
  4. Place half of the filling into the centre of one rectangle and egg wash one edge, then fold the ‘un-egg washed’ edge over the filling and press to seal.
  5. With a sharp knife, carefully round off the sealed edge, then crimp this or squash down with a fork. Repeat with the remaining pastry and filling.
  6. Egg wash the tops of the pasties. Place them onto a Pyrex baking tray and bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until the pastry is puffy and a deep golden brown.
