How To Make barbecue pasties

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 375°. Prepare pastry for double crust pie. Divide dough into two portions. On a lightly floured surface use your hands to slightly flatten one pastry portion. Roll pastry from center to edges into a circle 13 1/2 to 14 inches in diameter. Cut five 5” circles. Re roll scraps to cut a 6th circle. Repeat with remaining dough half for a total of twelve 5 inch circles

    For filling, in medium skillet, cook sweet pepper and onion in hot oil over medium heat about four minutes or until vegetables are tender. Stir in pork and 1/2 cup barbecue sauce. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the meat mixture onto half of each pastry circle. Top with a rounded tablespoon shredded cheese. Lightly moistened edge of pastry with milk. Fold other half of pastry over filling. Seal edges by crimping with a fork. Brush pasties with a little additional milk. Place on an ungreased extra large baking sheet or on two medium baking sheets.
