In bowl, mix together mustard, thyme, salt and pepper; add beef, tossing to coat.

On lightly floured surface, roll out 1 sheet of the pastry to 12-inch (30 cm) square; cut into 16 squares. Repeat with remaining pastry.

Lay 1 piece mustard-coated beef in centre of each square. Brush edges with water. Bring up corners and pinch together in centre; pinch sides closed. Place on parchment paper–lined or greased baking sheet. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 12 hours.)

Beat egg with 2 tsp water; brush over pastry. Bake in 425°F (220°C) oven until golden brown and puffed, about 15 minutes. Serve warm.
