Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. started with the basics of :- shed load of skirt beef. Swede. Onion. Potato. Shortbread pastry. Salt. Pepper. Butter. milk.
    Rolled out the pastry as best you can after a couple of lagers
    Placed the nasties on the pastry
    Added the milk around the edges of the pastry for the crimping
    Crimping the edges together is a bitch
    Ready for baking @ 180 for about an hour
    Fackin hell they didnt fall apart
    Perfect with a Czech home brewed lager
    Proper Job

    I fondly recall refuelling in Plymouth after a 9 month deployment. The oggy boat came out to the buoy and delivered 280 pasties for the crew.

    First British scran we'd had in 9 months.

    Of course as a Portsmouth based ship we'd have all preferred kebabs but it was the thought that counted.

  6. Errrmmmmm shortcrust
  7. My Thai friend asked me to take him pasties the last time I visited Bangkok. I bought some very decent ones but unfortunately they weren't to his taste. 'They aren't from Gregg's'!
    No wonder Asians are getting fatter.
  8. Good effort, though served with Czech home brewed lager, tut tut.
  9. **** all Cornish about 'em these days, made and packed by Poles to ye olde-commercially- viable recipe. Ivor Dewdney in Plymouth (england) makes the best ones.

    if you're near kingston, try the polish bakery/cake shop opposite O'Neills pub - they do the best pasties in there I've had for a while.

    as a guilty pleasure mind, a pair of microwaved Holland's pasties, slathered in salt and pepper and a liberal covering of HP sauce is always good.
  13. You need to work on your crimping, fella. :)
