Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef in the hot skillet until a bit of the fat renders, 2 to 3 minutes; add onion, garlic, and black pepper. Continue to cook and stir the beef mixture until the beef is browned completely, 3 to 5 minutes more.

  • Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Cut shortening into the flour mixture with a pastry cutter or fork. Slowly pour 3/4 cup milk into the mixture while stirring with a fork to form a soft dough; knead 8 to 10 times and roll out into a 12x8-inch rectangle.

  • Spread the beef mixture in an even layer onto the pastry rectangle to cover, leaving one of the longer edges clear. Begin with longer end not left clear and roll pastry and filling tightly into a cylinder, pinching the edge left clear to seal.

  • Use a thread to cut cylinder into ten 1 1/2-inch slices; arrange pinwheels onto a baking sheet.

  • Bake in preheated oven until pastry is no longer doughy, 15 to 20 minutes.

  • Stir cream of mushroom soup and 1 can of milk together in a saucepan; bring to a simmer and cook until hot, 2 to 3 minutes. Spoon over the baked pinwheels.

This was strange to me, but I thought I would give it a shot. I used a sheet of canned crescent roll and layered it with Munster cheese. I didn't let the meat mixture cool enough, so it melted the cheese and split the dough. I rolled it over and put it in the freezer for 15 minutes, which helped. I had a hard time rolling it tight enough, so it kinda fell apart. I might try this again...maybe. Read More

I made this with gravy instead of the mushroom sauce. The pastry was perfect! I even used the pastry recipe for sugar n cinnamon pastries for my niece n nephew. They loved it! Read More

This was kinda bland. Next time I will definitely add seasoning the garlic. salt & pepper were not enough. Also rather than mushroom soup I think this would be better with country gravy or beef gravy with mushrooms Read More

I missed that it called for two cans of soup, so I only used one can or soup and one can of milk. No wonder it was so runny—but if I had made it the way the recipe says, that would be an awful lot of gravy. I also served grated Cheddar alongside it and my family seemed to like that on top. Overall, a nice easy recipe with ingredients I always have on hand. Pretty cheap, too. It would probably be better with a homemade gravy, but I consider this the “Sunday night” easy version.

My mistake was not working the dough more and activating the glutton. The dough had a tendency to tear when rolling but it was easy to repair by pinching it back together. It was a little fancier version of beef & biscuit. Read More

Came out fine i made my pastry dough with Bisquick as a time saver. This dish would be far better with a simple homemade Southern style country gravy and would do this dish more justice than canned soup gravy my opinion of course. Good dish for something different. Read More

Very tasty. I am Gluten Free so that is the kind of flour I used. Did not hold together when I rolled it up. Patchedit the best I could & baked it 20 minutes. Didn't look as nice but tasted good. I did add seasoning salt to the beef & did make my own sauce. Read More

Mine wasn't all that pretty, but tasted so good! I added some Worcestershire sauce to the hamburger. And, I added mushrooms to the gravy. Hubbs really liked it as well Read More
