Rolls out on the stove to rise. I used the Texas Dinner Rolls for this bunch, but I think the regular Dinner Rolls work better.
The Texas sized ones are just too much bread in comparison to the filling.
My usual recipe is diced pork, cabbage, mushroom in a Marsala wine reduction sauce.
This time we tried a Philly Cheese Steak filling.
One diced onion
Five large green Bell Peppers diced
I used about three pounds of stew meat from Costco, since it is almost entirely Sirloin meat from the trimmings.
I love it as a stew base and it worked well for the meat pockets
Once the dough has risen, I rolled each piece into a circle, and added a three finger pinch of cheese.
Then a heaping tablespoon of the meat and pepper mixture went on top of the cheese.
(I don’t use cheese in the pork ones, but it was appropriate for the flavor I wanted)
I folded them in half and placed them on a baking sheet that had been sprayed with cooking spray
The Texas ones were much, much larger than my normal pockets.
Cooked at 350 for 16 minutes or until golden brown on the top
Tristan isn’t as excited about the meat filling (even though it was his idea), but I think the flavor profile is good. It tastes like a philly cheese steak. I do think it would be better in a slightly smaller size.
