OK Sushi Beef Sausage Rolls

Posted on Tuesday December 15, 2009 in Food

Here is my newly-invented recipe for a batch of about 40 party–sized sausage rolls that I made for Oscar’s birthday party yesterday.

I chickened out on the shortcrust pastry, and used frozen puff. Both work well, apparently.

In a food processor, chop the shallots, garlic and carrots together until they are very small.

Heat some butter in a fry pan and gently cook the processed mix until the shallots go transparent. Put them back into the food processor and blend in the parsley and the coriander.

Put the minced beef into a bowl and mix in the ingredients from the food processor. If I wasn’t cooking for kiddies here I would add chilli I reckon, to taste.

Mix the ingredients with your hands, add salt and pepper to taste. When combined, mix in the egg and the breadcrumbs.

Lay out a sheet of frozen pastry, thawed to almost floppy, cut down the centre. Put a sausage-shape of the mix down the centre. Roll the pastry around it. Do this until you have 8 such shapes.

Brush each with milk, then sprinkle with sesame seeds. Poppy seeds or other such things would be nice here.

If you have baking paper, put them on a sheet of it.

Bake at 180° until golden on top. You may need to turn them upside-down to crisp up the bottoms.

Cut into whatever length you like, and eat!

  2. Coriander is an interesting addition, I bet it’s wonderfully fragrant with the beef. Sounds yummy!

    Oh, and bought puff pastry is a life-saver ;)
