Ingredients:  
Make a pie crust mix and roll into approx. 6-inch diameters. You should get a couple out of one pie crust recipe.

You need either browned grown beef or left over chopped roast. (Meat should be cooked because by the time the meat gets done if its not cooked, the crust will be burned.)

Potatoes that are cooked. (I just put them in the micro and then peel them when theyíre done).

Big onion.

Butter.

Directions:
Directions:
Thatís all it is.. You just put some beef, cubed cooked potatoes and sliced onions on one-half of the pie crust shell. Dot with butter (I use a lot of butter) and then salt and pepper and fold the other half over and crimp the edges. Cut slits in the top and bake in the oven at about 375 until the crust is brown, just like a pie. You can also make it in a pie pan with a top crust the same way. Itís really just a meat pie, is all but sooo good. You can also make gravy to go over it when itís done if you donít want ketchup with it. Some people also put cooked carrots or rutabagas in it....itís up to you.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Thereís a town, Mineral Point, right next to Darlington and it was settled by Cornish people. Pasty was their specialty. The wives used to make it to send with their husbands when they went into the mines everyday because it was easy to carry with them. The Boy Scouts even make pasties every year to sell in Darlington, so I think everyone in that area knows about pasty. Itís really good but might be a little dry if youíre not used to it. You can eat it with ketchup if you want.

I got this recipe from Sue Knutson who got it from a friend
