  • Stove-top
  • Oven


  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 brown onion finely diced
  • 3 small potatoes very finely diced
  • 2 carrots very finely diced
  • 500 g lamb mince
  • ½ cup peas and corn frozen
  • 3 tbs Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tbs tomato sauce
  • 1 tsp vegetable stock powder
  • 2 tsp cornflour dissolved in ¼ cup water
  • 8 sheets puff pastry defrosted
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • sesame seeds to sprinkle


Conventional Method

  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees celsius (fan-forced). 
  • Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan or pot over medium heat. Add the onion, potatoes, carrots, lamb mince, peas and corn and cook for 5 minutes or until the vegetables have just started to soften.
  • Add the Worcestershire sauce, tomato sauce, vegetable stock and cornflour powder (dissolved) and cook for a further 2 minutes or until the sauce has started to thicken.
  • Use a small round plate or bowl to cut 2 large circles out of each pastry sheet. This will give you 16 small pasties. Alternatively you can use a large round plate to cut 1 circle from each pastry sheet giving you 8 large pasties.
  • Place a scoop of the mixture on one half of each circle. Brush the edge with egg and fold over to seal. Use a fork to create a crinkled sealed edge.  
  • Brush the pastry with egg and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Arrange on a greased baking tray.
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. 


Lamb mince can be substituted with beef, chicken, pork or turkey mince.
You can store the Lamb Pasties in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days
Alternatively, the pasties can be frozen in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
This recipe makes 8 large pasties or 16 small pasties. You could also make a combination of sizes to serve some as a meal and have some as snacks in the freezer.
