Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7. Remove the puff pastry from your fridge to allow it to come to room temperature.

Trim the carrot, then coarsely grate (no need to peel).

Halve, peel and chop the onion into small pieces. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).


Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on medium-high heat.

Once hot, add the beef mince, carrot and onion. Fry until the mince has browned and veg has softened, 8-10 mins. 

Use a spoon to break it up as it cooks. Season with salt and pepper. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw mince.


When the mince has browned, add the tomato puree and garlic to the pan. Stir-fry, 1 min. IMPORTANT: The mince is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.

Stir in the Worcester sauce, red wine stock paste, sugar and water for the beef (see pantry for both amounts). Bring to the boil, then simmer until thickened, 3-4 mins.


Once thickened, stir the Italian style cheese through the beef mixture until melted. 

Taste and season with salt and pepper if needed. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly.


Once the filling has cooled, cut the puff pastry into equal-sized rectangles (2 per person).

Spoon the beef onto one half of each rectangle, leaving a 1cm border at the sides.

Dampen the edges of the pastry with a little water, then fold the top half of the pastry over the filling to enclose it. Gently press the edges down with the back of a fork to tightly seal the parcel on the 3 open sides.

Carefully transfer your beef bakes to a lined baking tray. Bake on the top shelf of your oven until golden, 18-20 mins.  


Share the beef bakes between your plates.

Serve the baby leaves alongside drizzled with some olive oil.

Add a dollop of mayo (see pantry for amount) for dipping.
