Method

BASE PASTRY

STEP 1

Place MAURI Eagle Pie & Pastry Flour, salt, milk powder and EOI Vantage or EOI Trio in a spiral mixer and mix with a dough hook on low speed. Rub together until EOI Vantage or EOI Trio is well distributed.

STEP 2

Add water and mix well to a clear dough.

STEP 3

Add MAURI Finetex Flour & baking powder and mix to a clear smooth dough. Be careful not to over mix.

*Note: Baking powder is optional and used at 1.5%. It softens the dough and helps combat shrinkage.

PUFF PASTRY

STEP 1

Place the water in the machine bowl first. Add MAURI Eagle Pie & Pastry Flour and salt and mix with a dough hook until almost clear (approximatley 3-4 minutes).

STEP 2

Add EOI Pastrex or Perfex Ready Bits and lightly mix. Ready Bits should still be visible.

Mould up lightly and rest 5-10 minutes. Now proceed to give 4 to 5 half turns rolling each time to about 75x40cm before folding. Allowing resting period after 2nd and 4th turn.

*Note: the dough requires 4 to 5 half turns resting after every 2nd half turns. Allow 15 minutes rest before rolling and cutting.

Cook chopped chorizo sausage in a pot to release the fat and until crispy. Then remove from pot.

STEP 2

Add Onions to pot and cook for 5 minutes. Then add remaining Group 2 ingredients and cook for a further 2 minutes.

STEP 3

Add diced chunk steak to the pot as well as the chorizo. Stir through and coat the meat in with the spices.

STEP 4

Add Group 4 to the pot and stir to combine. Bring to a simmer and cook until meat is tender.
