Practice does make perfect in cooking too. I've been making this recipe for 40 years-usually on special occasions-and a few tweaks made it even better. 1) When cutting the pocket, I made it from the side (the long end) verses the front. 2) I baked it twice as long and 3) I purchased the beef from a local farm-Working H Farms-grass fed beef with no hormones, steroids, antibiotics or chemicals.
