Dust your work surface with flour and roll out half of the shortcrust pastry, this should be large enough for 2 sandwich plates. Repeat again so that you have 4 squares. You can remove the top plate from your sandwich toaster and use it as a template (rather than pressing the plate onto the pastry).
Place some of the steak filling in the centre of each of the pastry triangles (don’t overfill). Place the remaining pastry triangles over the pastie and seal all the edges.
If removed, refit the sandwich plate and switch on, allow the machine to heat. Brush the plates sparingly with some vegetable oil or butter if you prefer.
Carefully place each pasty onto the bottom plate and close and latch the lid.
Cook for approx 6-7 minutes until golden brown and piping hot.
Switch off your sandwich toaster and carefully remove the pasties. Allow the pasties to cool for a few minutes. Remember that the filling inside will be very hot!
