These Irish Pub Pasties are the perfect treat for St. Patrick’s Day. They are delicious and an easy-to-make recipe, that is for sure gonna be a crowd pleaser! The best part is they are completely customizable so they can be made with meat, vegan, or vegetarian.

We have a great little Irish pub in my town called The Celtic Ray, and as St. Patrick’s Day approaches I thought it might be fun to come up with my own interpretation of one of my favorite items on their menu–the Pub Pasty (pronounced PAH-STEE). For those of you not familiar with this yummy little treat, a pasty is a hand-held pie filled with savory meat or vegetables & spices.

Irish Pub Pasties

The traditional pub version is usually dipped in batter, then deep-fried. My home version uses ready-made rolled pie crusts which makes them super easy (and a lot less messy!) They were an across-the-board hit with the whole family, though the Husband did wish his had a little meat in it. Next time I will definitely add some ground beef, at least to his! As an added bonus, this recipe uses many of the same ingredients from this Cream of Cabbage Soup, which will make for an easy and delicious St. Paddy’s meal.

Assemble your ingredients, butter, eggs, potatoes, onions, carrots, green onion, cheese, pie crust, salt, pepper, mustard and cabbage

Here is what you need:

1 onion
1/3 head cabbage
4 small carrots
8 small red potatoes
4 green onions
1 leek
4 tablespoons butter
3 eggs
1 tablespoon brown mustard
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
1 8-ounce package shredded mozzarella cheese
4 ounces shredded Parmesan cheese
5 refrigerated rolled pie crusts
1 pound ground beef (optional)

Chop all your vegetables and onions

STEP 1. Dice onions, carrots, & potatoes. Chop cabbage into small pieces. Thinly slice leeks and green onions. (If using ground beef, brown beef in a large frying pan, then drain, remove from pan, and set aside. )

Saute all your onions and veggies

STEP 2. Heat 4 tablespoons of butter in a large frying pan over medium heat. Saute onions, green onions, & leeks until tender–approximately 6 minutes.

Sweat out your vegetables

STEP 3. Add cabbage, carrots, & potatoes. Continue cooking over medium heat for 5 more minutes. Reduce heat to low; cover & steam for 15 minutes. Remove from heat. Meanwhile, remove pie crusts from refrigerator & preheat oven to 375 degrees.

STEP 5. Add vegetables & cheese to egg mixture and mix well.

Cut the dough into triangles

STEP 6. Unroll pie crusts and cut into quarters using a pizza cutter.

STEP 7. To make pasties, place one wedge of crust on parchment-paper covered cookie sheet. Place a scoop of the veggie mixture on the center of a wedge, then cover with a second wedge.

Close dough with fork

STEP 8. Press edges with a fork to seal, then brush with egg & water mixture.

Cook dough until lightly browned.

STEP 9. Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
