BEEF & CHEDDAR HAND PIES

Prep Time:  25 minutes

Total Time:  1 hour  10 minutes

Servings:  4

 

Ingredients

1 pound ground beef

1 tablespoon minced garlic (2 cloves

1 large onion, halved and thinly sliced (3 cups)

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

6 ounces cheddar, shredded (2 cups)

1 sheet (12 ounces) frozen puff pastry, thawed

All-purpose flour, for dusting

1 large egg, lightly beaten

 

Directions

1.      Heat a large nonstick skillet over high.  Add beef, garlic, and onion; cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to brown, about 7 minutes.  Stir in Worcestershire and Dijon; season with salt and pepper.  Remove from heat and let cool completely.  Stir in cheese.

2.      Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Roll out pastry on a lightly floured surface to a 14 inch square.  Cut into four 7 inch squares; place a quarter of beef mixture on each.  Brush edges with egg, then fold one corner of each pie over, forming a triangle.  Press edges to seal.

3.      Place pies on a parchment-lined baking sheet.  Brush tops with more egg.  Cut 2 vents in each top; freeze 10 minutes.  Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes.  Serve with a side salad, or roasted green vegetable, such as broccoli rabe or asparagus.
