  • 300 g potatoes – peeled and cut into 1cm cubes
  • 2 medium carrots – peeled and cut into 1cm cubes
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1 small onion - chopped
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 340 g can Princes Corned Beef – cut into 2cm cubes
  • 2 tbsp frozen sweetcorn
  • 2 tbsp tomato ketchup or chutney
  • Salt and pepper for seasoning
  • 2 x 320g packets ready rolled shortcrust pastry or 1 x 500g block
  • 1 egg


  • Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 6 / 200C
  • Place the potatoes and carrots in a pan of water and simmer for about 10 minutes, or until they start to soften. Drain and set to one side.
  • Fry the onion and garlic in a little vegetable oil until translucent.
  • Add the corned beef to the onion and garlic and mix in.
  • Add the cooked potato, carrots and sweetcorn. Stir and cook until the corned beef cubes break up a little, but do try and keep some texture.
  • Season to taste.
  • Unroll the pastry if using ready roll, or roll out on a floured work top to the thickness of a pound coin. Use a side plate or saucer to cut out six 7?/18cm circles.
  • Spoon the mix onto the pastry, brush around the edge of the pastry with the beaten egg, fold up the edges and pinch together. Then use your fingers to crimp.
  • Transfer to a baking tray and bake for 30 – 35 minutes until golden brown.


  • Mix up the recipe by using sweet potato, pumpkin, squash, suede, turnips or parsnips. You could also try peas or diced peppers, or a spoonful of left-over mashed potato.
  • To save even more time, try preparing the filling in advance and freeze before using. The cooked pasties can be frozen then reheated once defrosted.
