  • 500g Quality Mark beef mince
  • 1 small red onion, finely grated
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sambal oelek (see tips) or your favourite chilli sauce
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 1 cup fresh breadcrumbs 
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

To assemble

  • 2 sheets frozen pre-rolled butter puff pastry, defrosted
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten with a little milk, for brushing
  • sesame seeds, for sprinkling

Satay sauce

  • 1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter 
  • 1/2 cup coconut cream
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons light soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil



Makes 16 small or 12 medium-sized rolls 

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Lightly grease a large shallow baking tray. 

Place all beef ingredients  in a large bowl and mix together. Season.

To assemble
Lightly flour the benchtop and cut each pastry sheet in half. Divide the mince mixture into 4 sausage shapes as long as your pastry. Working with 1 piece of pastry at a time, place 1 portion of the mince mixture slightly off-centre on 1 piece of pastry. Press together and use a fork to seal the edges. Brush with egg wash, then cut into desired size. 

Make a small slit in the top of each sausage roll to vent steam. Place the rolls  on the baking tray and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Cook for 30-35 minutes, until the pastry is well browned and the mince cooked.

Satay sauce
Place all the sauce ingredients in a small heavy-based saucepan and cook over a low heat. Stir until combined. If the sauce is too thick, add extra cold water until you have the desired consistency.

To serve
Serve  sausage rolls with satay sauce.

  • Sambal oelek is a spicy Southeast Asian chilli sauce. It is available in the international section of your supermarket. 
  • Finely grating the onion eliminates the necessity to cook and soften down before adding cold to the mince.
  • Make up the sausage rolls ahead and keep in the fridge until ready to cook.
  • Kids love mince and being rich in protein, iron and zinc, it’s great for them too.
