Beef Wrapped in Dough

Beef Wrapped in Dough

If you make bread often and want a new way to cook a piece of beef, try wrapping it in a piece of dough.

I didn’t take any pictures as I made this dish but here is the basic instructions:

Beef

Mushrooms, and or onions

bread/breadcrumbs
salt
pepper
dough

Make sure the beef is up to room temperature.
Saute some onions and or mushrooms in oil, butter etc.
Add some diced bread or bread crumbs, and mix to a stuffing consistency, season to taste.
Roll out enough dough large enough to wrap the beef.
Place the beef and stuffing mixture in the center of the dough.
Wrap the dough to cover and seal the beef.
Place on a baking sheet and in a 400 degree oven.
Cooking times depend on the size of the beef, usually these are made in a single serving size each.
Of course there are many variations of this recipe, beef en croute, beef wellington etc.
The basic idea is to seal the meat or filling in dough so it retains the moisture.
Try it with chicken, sausage, or vegetables.

Side order spinach: after cooking the stuffing mixture reserve a small amount in pan.
Add spinach, heat to wilt, season to taste, serve.
