When following a slimming diet, pasties are often strictly off the menu. Not anymore! With our Corned Beef Pasties, you can enjoy a filling, savoury pasty once more. One of our group members, Laura, came up with this fantastic recipe and it’s too good not to share!

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.

What diets is this Corned Beef Pasties recipe suitable for?

This recipe is suitable if you’re gluten free as long as you swap out the following ingredients for gluten free versions;

Has anyone found a way to make the bfree wraps stick down?

Hi, would this work with the Lo-Dough?

LynnFriday 27th July 2018

Hi I’ve just made these and they were a huge hit with all the family. I just found the “crust” a little bit tough and wondered if I could do something to prevent it next time. I egg washed the wrap and cooked them for 10 mins one side and 13 mins other side fan oven 175 degrees?

Hi, is it possible make this without the mustard powder (would it taste ok)? I have Dijon mustard if that would work? Thanks, Ria

ChrisTuesday 30th January 2018

After defrosting the corned beef pasties do you re-heat them in the oven or the microwave? Thanks in advance

Julie holmesThursday 18th January 2018

Using the gluten free ,maybe you could stand them up and sort of twist the top to keep the filling in, instead of making them flat , be more like a parcel

Steve BeckleyMonday 15th January 2018

Made the GF version today I used a paste of 1tbls GF bread flour and water to seal the pasties, brushed it all round the edges of BFREE Wraps and they have sealed without crimping them

Made these recently, and added some Swede too. They turned out perfectly, and were extremely filling.
A definite hit in our house!

These are amazing, thanks so much for this fab recipe! Made for the second time today and even hubby enjoyed one for lunch! This time I added 1 tsp medium curry powder to the filling mixture which was tasty but not really spicy so might up it next time.

Hi Veronica – How did you get these to stick together? Was really looking forward to using these instead of the WW ones when I went to Ireland so I stocked up. No way did these stick together, even using cocktail sticks it was disastrous…..TIA if you can help Marie x

    Emma TMonday 11th September 2017

    Hi Marie,

    Only the WW wraps will stick together properly – use plenty of egg to wash over and then squeeze the edges ????

AliceTuesday 29th August 2017

Hi, these look fab, how do you think they’d work reheating them? Just thinking if I cook them and then take them to work will they reheat in the microwave? Thanks x

Reply

Hannah PerryThursday 24th August 2017

I notice a lot of comments about the pasties not sticking together using the egg wash. I think the problem could be solved by using cocktail sticks to seal the ends for cooking and then they can easily be removed. Just a thought as the sticks would keep them together so it would mean you could use any make for the shell.

Mine always burst open.
I used the eye wash and a fork to crimp the w watcher wraps.
They tasted great but I need to find a way to keep them sealed.

    Emma TMonday 11th September 2017

    Hi Christine,

    You do need to squeeze them together very firmly – hope you get them to stick!

    Hi Sally,

    You could reheat them from frozen – would take around 45 minutes in a moderate oven. Careful not to burn them!

    They are available in many supermarkets – you would have to contact your local store to see if they stock them currently.
