cornish pasty? i think not

Postby jifop » 23 Nov 2005, 10:58

Thats not a Cornish pasty

its some sort of carrot/mince/pig sac/scrapings thrown into a greasy bit of pastry.

i dont normally buy pasties anywhere other than cornwall but she promised me they were traditional style pasties

The post above is my own personal opinion, it is not meant to upset or cause offence, if it does bugger off.

agh forgot breakfast, well the honest truth is that i sat round listening to music and getting pissed last night so i couldnt face food when i got up. the lure of a "traditional pasty" seemed too good too be true..... it was.

i like the west cornwall pasty company stand down at kings X, awesome aftyer a night out in town

Perhaps "Traditional" means it was cooked in an oven? :lol:

They have one of those in the town centre here, I can't say I'm the biggest fan, but it does when you have a Pasty craving!

You must have a couple of eggs kicking around in the back of the fridge - all students seem to have eggs, bit of cheese and some mouldy sausages.

Tell you the best and easiest thing I found to make while I was a student. Boil kettle. Half fill measuring jug with garden peas. Cover in boiling water and stick in microwave for three minutes. Meanwhile, take two potato waffles, and insert in toaster until golden brown. Drain peas when done. Consume. There, a nice easy snack that saw me through many times when revising for exams.

Beans make you fart.

after this thread i deided ti make pasties tonight, bearing in mind that the recipe was a tad vague and i've never made pastry before the results are very good! the pastry tastes of nothing but the filling is awesome!

For the Pastry ( This is for Short-crust)

* One and a half Cups Plain Flour
* Lard or vegetable fat
* Pinch of salt
* Water

For the pasty filling

* Chuck steak
* Two Large potatoes
* Half large turnip (swede)
* One large onion
* Salt and pepper to taste
* Water

Cornish Pasty Recipe Method

The Pastry
Place flour and salt in a bowl, rub in the fat, until the mixture is so fine that it falls through the fingers. Tip mixture onto a lightly floured table top. With your index finger make a well in the centre of the mixture. Add water a little at a time until it forms a pliable but stiff dough.

The Cornish Pasty Filling
Finely chop the steak. Dice the potato, turnip (swede) and onion. You may prefer to slice them. Add seasoning. Mix all in a bowl or to be really authentic use your kitchen table top
Before you say anything..... no i cant spell or type!

The post above is my own personal opinion, it is not meant to upset or cause offence, if it does bugger off.

What happened to the rest of the recipe? How do you stuff it? How long and how hot do you cook it? Will it fall apart if you drop it down a mineshaft?
