Sempoi Meat-pie Scroll

1 tbsp olive oil
1 small brown onion, chopped finely
1 clove garlic, crushed
400g mince beef
2-3 tomatoes, diced
1 tbsp tomato paste
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
coarsely chopped parsley (ikut banyak mana nak)

- heat oil, cook onion, garlic till soften,
- add beef, cook till change color,
- add tomatoes, tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce & cook till boil, reduce heat simmer till sauce thickens. (Do not overcook if not it'll be too dry).
- remove from heat & set aside to cool.

to make the scroll dough:

2 (300g) cups self-raising flour
1 tbsp caster sugar
50gm butter, chopped coarsely
3/4 cup (180ml) milk

additional filling:

1 cup pizza / mozzarela cheese (can add more if like)

- stir flour & sugar till well mixed, rub in butter with fingers till well mixed, stir in milk, mix to a soft, sticky dough. knead dough on floured surface till enough to roll. roll dough to rectangle with about 1cm thick.
- spread beef mixture over dough, sprinkle with cheese.
- Roll dough tightly with filings till end. trims excess ends, sliced roll into small pieces (should make about 12).
- place sliced roll onto greased muffin tray / flat tray.
- bake about 25 minutes on 180'c / 160'c fan forced oven.

in case, u don't feel like making a scroll, after you've rolled the dough, use a round cookie cutter, press cut the dough, press into greased muffin tray, put the beef mixture on top & sprinkle with cheese & bake as above ... (I did it this way, less messy ;))

Happy trying ... :)
