I love pasties. Quick, cheap, and easy to make and eat.
Here's my recipe for Americanized pasties. Heavy on the meat and potatoes and light on the rutabaga.
Sirloin Steak Pasties
2 lbs shortcrust pastry
16 oz of trimmed sirloin steak
10 1½" red potatoes, unpeeled
1 medium Vidalia onion, peeled
6 oz rutabaga
2 oz frozen salted butter
2 oz real bacon bits
2 beaten eggs
Salt and pepper
Cut steak, potatoes, onion, and rutabaga into ½" cubes and place in separate bowls.
Roll out the pastry to form a 20" circle. Cut out four 8" circles and place each on a floured surface.
Place equal amounts of cubed potato onto the center of each pastry circle. Place a layer of diced rutabaga on top of the potatoes. Do the same with the onion, then the diced steak. Sprinkle bacon bits on top of the steak. Sliver equal amounts of butter onto each pile of ingredients. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Dampen the edges of each pastry circle and fold in half to form a semi-circle. Pinch and turn the edge over to make a rope like effect. Turn each pastry so the pinched edge is toward the ceiling. Brush each pastry with a liberal amount of beaten egg and place on a well-greased baking sheet.
Preheat oven to 425° F (220° C). Bake for 10 minutes, then lower the temperature setting to 350° F (180° C) and bake for an additional 30 minutes.
When I was growing up, there was a Russian bakery in SF we used to go to for piroshkys, and they were so good! When I first had a pasty, I thought how funny that the Brits were making Russian food. I'm gonna try Mark's recipe to see how close I can get to what I remember as so delicious as a kid.

Quoting AsstChiefMark (Reply 21): That gave me an idea for the next time I make funnel cakes. I'll use dark brown food coloring when I mix the batter, a larger opening in the funnel, and skip the powdered sugar topping.
That's why a lot of the post on airwhiners and bitch and moan in there because they have nothing better to do And at the same time they can have virtual friends to make up for all the friends they are missing in real life.
Because in there they can act like a gang.
Afterall, it's easier to bitch about someone that doesn't reply back, isn't it?
That's called backstabbing
