Peel 2 onions and chop finely.

Peel 1 garlic clove and chop finely.
2 Gisèle's Pasties : Photo of step #2Pour 3 tablespoons olive oil into a large pan on medium heat. When hot, add the onion and garlic, salt and pepper, then cook for 1 or 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. 2 min.
3 Gisèle's Pasties : Photo of step #3Add 250 g minced beef... 10 min.
4 Gisèle's Pasties : Photo of step #4...and cook, stirring regularly, until the meat is cooked.

Add the chopped parsley and check the seasoning.
3 min.
5 Gisèle's Pasties : Photo of step #5Tip into a bowl, leave to cool, then add 1 egg and mix well.

Your filling is ready.
3 min.
6 Gisèle's Pasties : Photo of step #6Preheat the oven to 390°F (200°C).

Now to make the pasties:

Roll out 350 g Shortcrust pastry (pâte brisée), then cut circles 10-12 cm (4-5 inches) in diameter, using an upturned bowl (for example) as a guide.
2 min.
7 Gisèle's Pasties : Photo of step #7Moisten around the edge of the pastry with a brush dipped in water. 1 min.
8 Gisèle's Pasties : Photo of step #8Place the filling on one half of the circle, not too close to the edge... 1 min.
9 Gisèle's Pasties : Photo of step #9...then fold the circle over in half and press all along the edge to seal. 1 min.
10 Gisèle's Pasties : Photo of step #10Use up all the pastry like this. 30 min.
11 Gisèle's Pasties : Photo of step #11It is traditional for the edge of the pasties to be "marked". Use your finger to create an even pattern along the seam.

Of course, this is not essential, just prettier.
12 Gisèle's Pasties : Photo of step #12Glaze the pasties. 1 min.
13 Gisèle's Pasties : Photo of step #13Bake for about 20 minutes until nicely browned. 20 min.

Remarks

You can also fry the pasties, but this method of cooking makes them higher in fat.
