I made this for dinner tonight. I found it in Kraft Food & Family Magazine, and I'm glad I did.

We really liked these! Next time I make them I'll have to make a better attempt at sealing the edges. I guess the beef shrank up while cooking. I used smoky provolone for the cheese which added a wonderful smoky flavor. Thanks for posting! Made for 2008 All New Zaar Cookbooks Tag.
