Beef Hand Pies
- 1 pkg (2 sheets) puff pastry (I use Pepperidge Farms) - thaw according to directions on package - tip, if dough is too soft when going to fill, freeze for 5 minutes
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 medium onion, diced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup beef broth
***For the spicy - 2 tbs Harissa (I bought mine at Whole Foods in the International aisle. It is a spicy Moroccan paste and it is GOOD)
***For the creamy - 2 tbs Worcestershire sauce, and 4 oz crumbled blue cheese
Preheat oven to 400
Brown ground beef with diced onion. Drain, then add in minced garlic and saute for a couple of minutes. Stir in beef broth and cook 1 more minute. Separate beef into two bowls (or add half into another pan). In one pan/bowl stir in Harissa and in the other add Worcestershire sauce and crumbled blue cheese. Let fillings cool for a few minutes (this is a good time to freeze dough for 5 minutes if needed).
Cut each sheet of puff pastry into 4 squares. Put 1/4 of spicy mixture in the middle of a square. Repeat 3 more times. Put a 1/4 of blue cheese mix on one of the remaining 4 squares. Repeat 3 more times. Fold each square into a triangle shape, and seal edges. Place on a greased baking sheet (I lined my baking sheet w/parchment paper then greased paper). Bake for 15 minutes. Let cool for at least 10 minutes before serving.
