Beef Pasties

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Nana in the woods

I got this recipe from a neighbor when I lived in Duluth, MN. Pasties are a big thing up there. It is quite good and fairly easy.

I had to make one slight change and that was I used a refrigerated french loaf bread dough (our area does not carry frozen bread dough) so I adjusted a bit on some of the extra time to have the dough rise. I feel like this recipe is just missing some crucial flavor. As written it is pretty bland and I feel that the addition of possibly minced garlic, cheese, tomatoes, might help. Maybe it is just a regional taste but we need a bit more bite in the depth of flavor. I also did a light egg wash on the dough to get it to brown well while baking. Made for the Under Cover Photo Event in the Cooking Photos Forum.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Let dough rise until doubled in size.
  2. Combine remaining ingredients in large skillet. Cook 20 minutes. Cool to lukewarm.
  3. Divide dough into 6 pieces; roll out and stretch each piece on a floured surface to an 8" circle.
  4. Top each circle with about 2/3 cup of the filling. Mositen edges; fold in half and seal well.
  5. With scissors, snip a short gash on top of each circle to allow steam to escape.
  6. Place pasties on a greased cookie sheet. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 30 to 40 minutes.
  7. Bake at 325 degrees fahrenheit for 15 to 20 minutes.
