  • Stove-top
  • Oven


  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 brown onion medium, 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 frying pan or pot over medium heat. Add the diced 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 (mixed with water) and cook for a further 5 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.
  • Storing - you can store the Lamb Pasties in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
  • Freezing - alternatively, the pasties can be frozen in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
  • Quantity - 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.
