"This is my much quickened version of a pasty, put into pie form. For those who are unfamiliar with pasties, they are a pastry filled with meat, potatoes and onions, then folded into a half-circle. I live in an old mining town and these are still popular from the old days when the men would take them in their lunch boxes."

"WOW...What a great idea! I just finished making them the old fashioned way! Wish I saw this before I did all that work!! Thanks for the Great idea!!!"
"I'm from Butte, MT, a mining town where pasties are a staple food. I have used your recipe several times now and everyone loves them. Plus your version is super quick and easy. I prep a few on my lunch (the boys are big eaters) and then put them in the oven when I get off work. Delicious!!"
"GREAT recipe Tee Lee! Hubbie just raved. Will definately be added to our favorite recipes. Thanks!"
"Tastes even better the next day. Definitely a new staple recipe for our family."
"Very tasty. I will double the garlic next time. The Husband had three pieces if that tells you anything. :) Thanks!"
"This was fantastic. Thanks for a keeper."
"This is the first time I had pasty, so I have nothing to compare the taste to, but I thought for something with so few ingredient it smell was amazing while cooking and it was delicious. I did not rate it 5 stars because it was rather dry. But, a little ketchup took care of the dryness! I'm not sure if it was dry because of the way I prepared it - I was short on time so I cooked the ground beef, onions, garlic and then added the carrots and potatoes. I then baked the pie at 400 for 55 minutes. I did not alter the measurements of the ingredients though. Nest time, I will allow myself more time and follow the instructions exactly and see if I can get a moister end result. Thank you for sharing your recipe!"
"I've never had a pasty before, so I don't know how this compares, but it was delicious!!!! And so very easy!!!!!"
"I love pasties, but I've never made them myself. This is definitely better than the store bought kind. I served mine with the gravy spooned over and a side salad. Makes a very satisfying meal! Made for PAC Fall '07."
"This is a quick and easier way to get the "authentic" pasty taste without the time-consuming details. I didn't use frozen potatoes - but rather the Simply Potatoes which were in my grocery store's dairy section. My family couldn't tell the difference - so who I am to tell?? It'll be my secret! THANKS!"
