Put all Pastry ingredients (except the water) in a food processor and tap the pulse button to slowly incorporate the butter into the flour. (If doing by hand rub butter into flour until it represents fine breadcrumbs, try to work as quick as possible to avoid butter melting). Add ice-cold water bit by bit and knead with hands into the dough until it forms a playdoh like texture. (You may need a little less/more water than stated above) (Try not to handle too much). Place pastry covered in the fridge while you create the beef filling.
