You won’t believe how good these Corned Beef Pasties are. Super simple, and a filling made with only a handful of ingredients, you can be sure there are no hidden nasties in these pasties and they haven’t been covered in lashings of oil like many high street bakers do: you may never go back to the shop bought version.

The beauty of this technique is how versatile it is. You can experiment with different fillings and flavours, you can make them for picnics or as a snack and you can even serve with veggies and gravy for a substantial dinner.

Hints & Tips

Below we added some of our communities most common hints and tips. We hope you find them useful.

Corned beef pasty
I used a thin bread and crimping tool rather than wraps, saves on the egg wash and they are smaller so go in packed lunches.
These are so easy to make, my 10 year old loved helping
I've also added some grated carrot into mine
Love this recipe so easy to make taste like the real thing
Used Prince's lean corned beef and used leeks instead of onions also a good splash of Worcester sauce.
Easy to prepare and delivers on taste.
Don't be tempted to overfill as this will make sealing them difficult. Also, ensure that the egg wash is applied evenly throughout to ensure a perfect golden brown finish.

Hi pon
How many grams would you say of potatoes?


    HollyThursday 17th February 2022

    Hey Loz, potatoes come in different shapes and sizes but on average 2 medium potatoes can weigh 280g – 560g, hope that helps!


HelenSaturday 15th January 2022

Please can you tell me if they can be heated in the microwave after defrosting!? I really want to take them to work but we don’t have a oven


    HollyMonday 17th January 2022

    Hey Helen, Yes you can re-heat in the microwave. Place in a microwave proof container with loosely fitting lid and heat for 4-7 minutes until piping hot. Hope that helps!


Pat HamerThursday 5th August 2021

Been to slimming world group today and this recipe came up. I cut potato up into small squares, added peas and chopped onion, mine were small wraps so made four, will have the other tomorrow for lunch. We loved them, better than pastry. Think the wrap will go soggy after freezing and defrosting, may be better to freeze before cooking.


    HollyWednesday 15th September 2021

    Hey Pat, so glad to hear you enjoyed this recipe! The pasties are suitable for freezing ensure you defrost overnight and then to re-heat place into a hot oven for 10-15 minutes until crisp and piping hot. Hope that helps!

What quantity of potato should be used for this recipe to achieve the calorie amount?


    Emma TMonday 23rd September 2019

    Hi Alison,

    We’ve used two small, boiled potatoes


CarolineTuesday 13th August 2019

Made these tonight and my husband loved them. He ate 3!! I wasn’t as keen but probably because I don’t like the taste of warm corned beef. Will make them again with a different filling for me next time ????.


    Emma TMonday 23rd September 2019

    So glad your husband enjoyed them!


Mary OnabanjoSaturday 11th May 2019

I made these last night ! Substituted the potatoes for Swede instead as I’m doing SP. I love it!! Doubled everything in the recipe and made 6 🙂


MichelleSunday 7th April 2019

Planning on making these today for lunch at work…will they still be ok to eat Friday? Thank you


    CateMonday 8th April 2019

    These will keep for a few days in the fridge, but they also freeze very well! If you are going to freeze them make sure you defrost them thoroughly and that they are piping hot throughout when reheated 🙂


AngelaSaturday 2nd March 2019

Omg! I’m new to the site. In love with your recipes! Planning my meals for next week. This is definitely going to be one of them! Pre-ordered the book. Can’t wait until it arrives. Thank you so much for all your hard work! ❤


Clairea45Saturday 2nd February 2019

Made these and added carrots and a beef stock cube. Mashed everything together whilst hot then filled the wraps and baked as recipe. Some sealed well while some just wouldn’t. Even so, filling stayed inside. Tasted delicious. Thanks for creating the recipe
