Meat and Veggie Roll Up
My mom is always searching for new recipes to try so that we don’t fall into a cooking rut. Our very close family friend, Lamila, told us about this recipe. It is YUMMMMYYYY. And you can alter it however you like with whatever you have in your kitchen. Here’s what we use:
1 pound of lean ground beef
2 cups of mixed peppers diced up (if you have a favorite use that)
2 cups diced mushrooms
½ cup of shredded cheese (we’ve used anything from mozz to Mexican blend)
2 sheets of puff pastry (cut into halves so you will have 4 sheets)
1 egg yolk
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
In a skillet, brown your meat. Once browned, add in your veggies and let it simmer and cook for about 10-15 minutes on low-med heat.
Once done, lay out some tin foil and put some flour on it. Take each sheet (should be 4 total once you cut in half), and use a rolling pin to get it nice and flat/even.
When done, take a spoon and spoon in a healthy portion of the meat/ veggie mixture (see picture below).
Sprinkle with some cheese then roll the puff pastry until you cannot roll it anymore. Be careful to not let the mixture fall out on either side…if you take your time, you’ll be able to do this without any real mess.
Then beat your egg yolk lightly and brush on top of each puff pastry.
Do this 4 times/ for all 4 sheets.
Grease a pan and place each roll up on the pan about 1.5 inches apart.
Bake for about 40 minutes or until the puff pastry is nice and browned.
Eat hot!! This dish is DELISH and pretty savory. There will most likely be leftovers and this is almost better the next day. We love this dish and you can put in whatever you like. I’ve done ground turkey instead of beef, added in corn and beans or tomatoes and chopped up brussel sprouts. It’s really up to you. We usually serve a light salad on the side because it is pretty hearty!
