A piece of heaven at every bite! These ground beef pastries are crispy and crumbly stuffed with juicy beef, onion and Asian ingredients.
- 250 g ground beef
- 1 onion finely chopped
- 300 g store-bought pastry cut into squares
- 2 egg yolks
- 2 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon grated ginger
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 1/2 tablespoon sugar
- 3 teaspoon corn flour
- 1/3 cup water
- 3 tablespoon sesame seeds more or less to your liking
Mix corn flour, water, soy sauce, ginger, sugar, sesame oil in a small bowl. Add the sauce to the beef and onion while stiring the mixture until the sauce is completely absorbed. (Add the sauce little by little so they can be absorbed easily)
Cut the pastry into about 8cm squares, place the beef mixture on the pastry squares, cover then crimp the edges of the pastry with a fork to seal it shut, and place on the baking paper. Brush with egg yolk and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
Preheat the oven to 200C. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown.
