Beef pirogue

I love puff pastry. I would be happy eating baked puff pastry and nothing else. It`s crunchy and soft at the same time and the taste is good.

I love pirogues because of the puff pastry. My favorite pirogue is with minced beef. I made a big beef pirogue that served two the other day. It was delicious.

I began by making the beef filling. I fried onions and minced beef in a pan. I added tomatoe purèe and spices. I also added a bit of milk to get the texture I wanted. I let it cool before I filled the pastry.

I put the minced beef in the middle of the pastry.

I rolled the pastry into a pirogue. The pirogue got brushed with egg. I made cuts on it to prevent it from breaking.

I baked it at 200 C for 20 minutes.
