Cornish pasties are delicious pastries filled with tender cuts of beef and vegetables! The golden brown flaky crust absorbs all the delicious flavors of the meat filling inside as it bakes. After just one bite, you’ll understand why these pasties are so popular!
Pastries are traditional British comfort foods with a rich culinary history dating back to the 13th century (maybe even longer)! Anything can be stuffed into a pastry shell and called a pastry, but Cornish pastries are very special and require a specific combination of ingredients to give them a rich and distinctive flavour.
It’s made by wrapping a simple yet flavorful filling of beef and vegetables in a flaky, homemade pastry. If you haven’t tried these delicious pasties before, you’re ready to go!
