1.Heat oil in a large saucepan over high heat. Add onion and garlic; cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until onion is soft. Add beef and herbs; cook, stirring, breaking beef up with a spoon, for 8 minutes or until browned.
2.Stir in paste, red wine and sauce. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 minutes or until wine has reduced by half.
3.Whisk stock and flour together in a small jug; stir into beef mixture. Reduce heat to medium; cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until sauce has thickened. Season to taste. Transfer filling to a tray; refrigerate.
4.Preheat oven to 200°C/400°F.
5.Grease 2 x 12-hole (⅓-cup/80ml) muffin pans.

7.To assemble, line pan holes with shortcrust rounds; top equally with cooled beef filling. Brush puff pastry edges with beaten egg. Place pastry, egg-side down, over filling; press edges to seal.
