Number of serving: 4
500 g minced beef

ΒΌ teaspoon ground allspice

salt and ground black pepper

1 onion, diced

1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce

1 garlic clove, grated or minced

1 teaspoon dried thyme

1 tablespoon tomato ketchup

200 ml water

4 spring onions, sliced

1 egg

2 sheets puff pastry


  • Heat some oil in a deep frying pan, add onions and fry until translucent. Add pepper sauce, garlic and thyme and continue to cook for another minute, then add a pinch of salt.
  • Add minced beef, allspice and pepper and toss to mix, breaking up any clumps, and let cook until the meat is no longer pink. Add ketchup and salt to taste.
  • Pour in the water and stir. Bring the mixture to a boil then reduce heat and let simmer until most of the liquid has evaporated and whatever is remaining has reduced to a thick sauce.
  • Sprinkle and fold in the spring onions, remove from the heat and set aside to cool completely.
  • To assemble:
    Beat the egg to make an egg wash, set aside. Spread each roll of pastry out flat and roll it a little to reduce the thickness, but take care to keep the sides even. Cut each roll of pastry in two it's up to you whether you do it diagonally or into two rectangles. Place a quarter of the meat mixture into half of each section, then brush with egg around the outside and fold the extra over the top, pressing down on the edges to secure them.
  • When all are done, brush with egg and bake in the oven for 30-45 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm, with a mango salad.
