I am going to show you how to make the most AMAZING homemade Cornish pasty, a true British classic!

My Cornish pasties have tender peppery chunks of beef mixed with melt-in-your-mouth vegetables, all wrapped up in buttery golden pastry. The Cornish Pasty is one of the most famous foods to come out of the south of England, and I can completely understand why the Cornish folk have so much pride in this tasty hand-held meal.

Full recipe including hints and tips here:

Ingredients for the Cornish pasties:
450 g (3 2/3 cups) plain (all purpose) flour. plus a couple of tbsp extra for rolling out the pastry and sprinkling on the tray later
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
125 g (1/2 cup + 1 tsp) unsalted butter chopped
2 egg yolks
125 ml (1/2 cup) cold water

Pasty Filling:
450 g (1 lb) potato peeled and finely diced
150 g (1/3 lb) swede/rutagaba peeled and finely diced
150 g (1/3 lb) onion peeled and finely chopped
300 g (2/3 lb) thin sliced skirt steak or sirloin finely chopped
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground black pepper
3 tbsp butter diced
1 egg beaten

Great recipe.

James Goacher says:

I've never been a fan of Cornish Pastie until recently. The ones I have had in the past have not been homemade and the filling was just an annoymous lump of things but recently I have seem videos such as this which makes them enticing enough to try. Many Thanks.

Richard Sayer says:

Oh wow! I love Cornish Pasties. Reminds me of my Cornish holidays when I was young. Cant wait to try and make them as I tend to find the shop bought ones scrimp on the meat and hence the filling is mainly potato and onion. I suppose you could also pimp them up by adding other types of fillings/herbs/spices? Great video as ever.

Easy pastry in the food processor, great idea. Pasties/meat pies are the ultimate UK comfort food. Are the origins Welsh? Anyways, awesome recipe as always. Keep up the great work.

Stephen Williams says:

Feeling nervous. I'm just doing the toad in the hole. I put the batter in the fridge. After at least an hour I'll go to the next stage. Now I'll watch this.
