      Mini Beef Dishes



      Beef Pinwheels



      Ingredients:


      1 package (16 to 24 ounces) fully-cooked boneless beef pot roast with gravy


      1/2 cup shredded asiago cheese


      1 package (17.3 ounces) frozen puff pastry (2 sheets), defrosted


      4 green onions, cut in half lengthwise, then cut into thin long strips



      Directions:



      • Heat beef pot roast with gravy in microwave according to package directions. Remove pot roast from container; discard gravy. Shred pot roast in large bowl with 2 forks; stir in cheese. Set aside.


      • Heat oven to 400 degree F. Spray 2 metal baking sheets with nonstick cooking spray. Unfold each puff pastry sheet onto lightly floured surface.


      • Cut in half with sharp knife or pizza cutter to make four 10x4-3/4 inch rectangles.


      • Working with 1 rectangle at a time, place a long side in front of you. Place ¼ of the beef mixture onto pastry, leaving a ½ inch border on the long side closest to you. Lay ¼ of the green onion strips lengthwise over beef mixture. Roll up pastry jelly-roll fashion starting with long side opposite you. Brush water along the border and seal pastry. Repeat with remaining pastry, beef mixture and green onions.


      • Cut pastry rolls crosswire into ½ inch thick slices, forming pinwheels. Arrange 1 inch apart on prepared baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees F. for 15 to 17 minutes or until golden brown, rotating pans halfway through baking. Transfer pinwheels to wire rack; cool slightly. Serve Warm.
