Peter Gordon’s tasty Bolognese sauce is the perfect recipe for turning into pies or pasties using store bought puff pastry. Served with a freshly made zingy, crunchy coleslaw this is an easy and delicious meal that the whole family can enjoy.

This recipe comes from Homeland’s Community Day hosting chef Lyall Minhinnick and a group of rangatahi that he is mentoring. Lyall runs the group with funding from Health Through The Marae to help local rangatahi associated with Tahuna Pa Marae to understand the art of cooking and the concept of the greater hospitality industry.

For Beef Pasties

For Serving

1

Caramelise the onion, garlic, and herbs in the oil over medium heat in a large saucepan, stirring frequently.

2

Add the beef, apricots and coconut and cook until the beef breaks up.

3

Add the carrot, canned tomatoes and smoked paprika, increase heat to full and bring to the boil, stirring often.

4

Reduce heat and cook at a rapid simmer until liquid has reduced to below the level of the mince.

5

Stir in the flour mixture and cook out for 3 minutes, stirring to avoid lumps.

6

Add salt and pepper to taste then tip into a baking dish to cool before placing in the fridge to chill completely.

7

Turn the oven to 210ºC bake.

8

Cut the pastry into whatever shape you like – a square will give more pasties than a round.

9

Place spoonfuls of the chilled mince just off centre on the pastry.

10

Brush the egg wash around half the pastry and fold it over so the seams meet, squeeze out any excess air.

11

Dip a fork into flour and use to press the edges to seal.

12

Brush with egg wash and sprinkle with the seeds, poke a few fork marks into the pastry at the highest point.

13

Bake until golden – at least 20 minutes.
