Devonshire Pasties

My Devonshire-style pasties consist of short-crust dough filled with finely chopped raw ingredients: beefsteak, potatoes, rutabagas (swedes or turnips), and onions; the filling is mixed with a small amount of soft butter, salt and pepper; dough is crimped at the top, then pasties are baked at medium-high oven-temp for about an hour.
