I am makeing some beef pasties today, but dont know how i should PP the beef for each pasty, i have put 2 tablespoons of mince into each pasty, but am stuck on how many PP i should count for it. ... the pastry works out at 3 PP, and i have also added potato (tiny peices) and carrots too.
Thanks for any help

I would work out how much mince you used and divide it by how many pasties you made, then point it for X grams of mince.

Depends on the mince? Did you get lean or extra lean mince? I get extra lean at 3pp per 100g, 4pp per 100g of lean so prob about 5 or 6pp per 100g of "normal" mince. You'd have to weigh what a tbsp is? Or do as above user says and use the total amounts -> get pp values in total -> divide by how many pasties.
