Party Pies

Difficulty: Easy-Medium

Serves 6


I make really good pies, there’s no denying it. This was another of my brother’s birthday dishes but it is perfect to add to the weekly dinner menu. Although they are party pies, they aren’t tiny and served with a good side dish they make a great meal. The rich filling is complimented by the flaky pastry casing and I reckon you could fool a meat-eater with this baby.

Ingredients

  • 3 sheets of vegan puff pastry (feel free to make your own if you’d like), each sheet cut into 4
  • 1 small brown onion, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 packet beef style chunks, cut into smaller pieces
  • 2 cups vegan gravy (some Gravox varieties are vegan)
  • 1/4 cup barbecue sauce
  • 2 beef style stock cubes

Method

  1. Grease a Texas muffin pan and preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. In a frypan, fry the onion, garlic and beef style chunks before adding the gravy, barbecue sauce and stock cubes. Combine well and allow to heat through.
  3. Line the the muffin pan with squares of pastry as evenly as possible.
  4. Spoon the filling into the pan before covering with the pastry, rolling the edges up.
  5. Spray with oil and bake in the oven for about 15 minutes or until golden.

    Exactly how big are these pies? Part of me wants them to be fist sized (the greedy part) but I’m really confused because there’s no visual cues. Is that small plate or a dinner plate that its on?

    🙂

      Hey Kimblerley,

      It’s on a normal sized dinner plate, they’re not as small as normal party pies but not as big as a regular pie 🙂

    I just made these for lunch! They taste amazing 🙂
    The only change I made was that I used shortcrust pastry for the bottom casing and puff pastry for the lid.
    They aren’t heaps big, but they are surprisingly filling! I felt extremely full after eating only two of them 😀

    This recipe blog is incredible, I’ve just shared the link with the fellow vegans in my office!
    Being newly acquainted with veganism, I have been unable to find vegan puff pastry. Which brand do you use and where do you buy it? (I’m in Melbourne). Thanks so much! 🙂

      Hey Dani,

      Thanks for the compliment 🙂 A lot of store-bought puff pastry is surprisingly vegan, just read the label. I know there is one that specifically says “vegan” on the label too, I believe it is available at Coles and Woolworths!

    Hi there,

    This looks amazing! I’ve been craving party pies lately 🙂

    Any idea where I could find beef style chunks in Melbourne?

      Hi Ellie! I get mine from my local Asian grocery so you could try them. I know that Cruelty Free Shop stock some similar products too so check out their Melbourne store 😀 If you can’t get them, TVP will suffice.
