My children always make sure they're home when they find out we're having these pockets for dinner. They're a smart way to use leftover pot roast. —Karen Burkett, Reseda, California

TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 20 min.
MAKES: 6 servings


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 cups finely chopped fresh mushrooms
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 package (17 ounces) refrigerated beef roast au jus
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 package (17.3 ounces) frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 6 slices provolone cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 425°. In a large skillet, heat butter over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and onion; cook and stir 5-7 minutes or until tender and liquid is evaporated. Remove from pan; cool completely.
  2. Drain beef, discarding sauce or saving for another use. Coarsely chop beef. In a small bowl, whisk egg and water.
  3. Unfold one sheet of puff pastry. On a lightly floured surface, roll pastry into a 15x9-in. rectangle; cut crosswise into thirds, making three 5-in.-wide rectangles.
  4. Place a cheese slice on one half of each rectangle, trimming cheese to fit. Top each with a rounded tablespoon mushroom mixture and scant 3 tablespoons beef. Lightly brush edges of pastry with egg mixture. Fold pastry over filling; press edges with a fork to seal. Transfer to a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining pastry sheet and filling.
  5. Brush tops with egg mixture. Bake 17-20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm. Yield: 6 servings.
Freeze option: Freeze unbaked pastries on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet until firm. Transfer to a resealable plastic freezer bag; return to freezer. To use, bake frozen pastries on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet in a preheated 400° oven 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and heated through.
