Roasted Rib Pockets

Don’t you love it when you invent a recipe on the spot and it turns out totally delicious?  That’s what happened with this easy dish.  Travis and I were in the mood for something new, so we ran to the store and figured out what we were going to cook as we wandered the aisles.  Here’s what we ended up with…

You’ll need:

-Boneless beef ribs

-3 cloves garlic

-3 cups beef broth

-1/2 a bottle of beer (your guy will be more than happy to finish the other half :)

-1 box puff pastry

-a few slices of havarti cheese

-1 egg

Step 1: Throw the beef ribs into a covered pot and pour the broth and beer inside.  Add your minced garlic and a little salt & pepper, then throw it in the oven at 350° for about 90 minutes, or until the beef is tender and full of fall-apart deliciousness.  (We didn’t do this, but I think it would be delicious to add chopped onions to the pot too!)  Set your puff pastry out to thaw.

Step 2: Cut each pastry sheet into six equal rectangles.  Break off some of the havarti and place it on half of the rectangle.  The pastries will be folded in half, so leave room around the edges to seal off each puff.

Step 3: When the meat is done, break it apart and put a dollop on top of each piece of cheese.

Step 4: Fold your rectangled pastry in half, then use a fork to seal the edges tight.

Step 5: Beat an egg and lightly brush it over each puff.

Step 6: Pop it back into the oven according to the timing of your puff pastry (approx. 10 minutes).  Pull out your creations, and enjoy!

What do you think of my roasted rib creation?  Do you like inventing recipes as you go or do you prefer to stick with measured steps?  Have you tried anything extra tasty in the kitchen recently?  Share in the comments!

    This sounds delicious! I’m impressed! You know me, I’m all about the cooking experiment…no recipe, no problem..that’s my motto, haha! I could definitely see adding caramelized onions or spicy bbq sauce to this yummy meal to mix things up! You could even put tart apple slices in them for a fun flavor surprise :) Pork and apples always compliment each other really well! I think I’ll have to try this.
