Ingredients

  • 1 loaf (1 pound) frozen bread dough, thawed
  • 2 cups thinly sliced onion
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 6 ounces beef tenderloin or top sirloin steak (1 inch thick)
  • 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup beef broth
  • 3/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 6 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1 can (10 ounces) beef au jus gravy

Directions

  1. Allow dough to rise until nearly doubled. Meanwhile, in a skillet, saute onion in butter for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. With a slotted spoon, remove onion from skillet; set aside.
  2. Cut beef into 1/8-in. slices; add to skillet. Increase heat to medium; cook and stir for 3 minutes or until browned. Return onion to skillet. Stir in flour, brown sugar, cumin, salt and pepper. Add broth; cook and stir for 6-8 minutes or until liquid has evaporated. Remove from the heat.
  3. Punch dough down; roll on a floured surface to a 16-in. x 12-in. rectangle. Place on a greased baking sheet. Place beef mixture down the center of the long side of the dough. Sprinkle with Monterey Jack cheese and 4 tablespoons Parmesan cheese.
  4. With a sharp knife, cut dough on each side of beef filling into 1-3/4-in. wide strips. Fold strips alternately across filling. Sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about 30 minutes.
  5. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Heat gravy; serve as a dipping sauce. Yield: 6 servings.

This is a family favorite. I like to use tenderloin or extra tender cuts of beef for extra special results.
