  4. Cook until beef is evenly brown, stirring constantly.
  5. Add the breadcrumbs and stock and combine all the ingredients well.
  6. Simmer until liquid is absorbed. It should be moist but not watery
  7. Remove the skillet from the stove and preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  8. Uncover the dough circles and place 2 to 3 tablespoons of filling on half of each..
  9. Moisten the edges of the dough with water and fold the dough circle over the meat filling. Use a fork to press edges. Lightly brush the pastry with the beaten egg.
  10. Bake on a lightly greased baking sheet for 30 to 35 minutes or until the pastry are golden brown.
