Beef and Curry Pie - epicurious.com

The pies are made using puff pastry sheets, so start by rolling two sheets to 12" squares. Cut out 5" dia circles and set aside (you should be able to get 12 circles). Mix together 1/2 pound ground beef, 1T soy sauce, 1/2t sugar and salt and pepper to taste. Brown this mixture, breaking the beef into small pieces (we think left over beef roast would work well too). Drain the beef leaving the drippings in the pan. To the pan add 1 medium onion chopped, 1 large potato diced, 1T curry powder and cook until the potatoes are just tender. Add 6T water and simmer until the potatoes absorb the liquid. Add 1/4C frozen peas, then cool the filling. Put 1/3C of the filling in the center of one dough circle. Brush the edge with a well beaten egg, place another circle on top and "crimp" the edges with a fork. Repeat, creating 6 pies in total. Brush the pies with more of the egg wash and bake on parchment paper at 400 F until golden brown and puffed, about 25 min. We served the pies with a dry red wine and sliced tomatoes.
