Jamaican Patties are simply a delight to eat. They are full of quality ingredients that combine to create amazing flavours. I serve these as a main dish but also as a picnic treat and snack. Either way, they are superb and fit the bill. I use Rapeseed Oil in this recipe as it is flavourless but carries the flavours of the other ingredients brilliantly. For an additional heat you could add a scotch bonnet chilli or hot sauce during the simmering stage.

  • Place a large saucepan over a high heat and add the oil
  • When hot, add the chopped onion and a good pinch of salt and cook for 7 – 10 minutes until the onion has softened.
  • Add the curry powder, chopped garlic, chopped chives and thyme and stir well.
  • Allow to cook for about 1 – 2 minutes. The kitchen should smell amazing about now.
  • Add the minced beef, breaking up any chunks and cook for 5 minutes. The beef should be browned all over.
  • Add the stock and sugar and stir in.
  • Bring the contents to a boil and then reduce the heat until it is a gentle simmer. Place the saucepan lid on top and leave simmering for about 10 minutes.
  • Remove the lid, add the torn-up bread, replace the lid and simmer again for about another 10 minutes.
  • Remove the saucepan from the heat and season with salt and pepper tasting frequently to make sure you get the desired effect.
  • Now its time to pre heat the oven to 220C, 425F, Gas 7.
  • Sprinkle a little flour on a clean cool work surface and your rolling pin.
  • Place the pastry into the middle of the flour and roll out until the pastry is approximately 3 – 4 mm in thickness.
  • Using a side plate as a guide to cut around, cut out 6 circles from the pastry.
  • Place 1/6th of the filling on one half of the pastry circles allowing for a strip around the edge to make the seal.
  • Once all of the filling has been used, wet the edge of the patties with a little water or whisked egg mixture. Fold the unfilled half over the filling and press down the edges. Use a fork to lightly seal the edges.(also makes it look nice).
  • Carefully lift the patties onto a baking tray covered with greaseproof/parchment paper and brush with whisked egg.
  • Place in the preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes or until the patties are lovely and golden and fully cooked.
