    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This makes 4 of the most delicious savory beef pockets you will ever try! I make these with my own bread dough, but crescent rolls work fine for can use leftover roast beef for this also, just make certain the the leftover roast is not too dry, you can soak the beef in beef broth for a while to moisten, drain slightly before shredding the beef, also this can be made with leftover pork roast soaked in juice. Double the recipe to make 8 squares.

      I used some leftover roast for this. It was delish! I made Refrigerator Rolls and had frozen some, so used the dough to make these dinner gems! Thanks, Kittencal!

      Oh Kitten! You have the best recipes and this was one of them! I used leftover roast form dinner the other night and it turned out perfect. They were also very easy to whip up which is always a plus. Thanks!
