Ingredients

  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 large tomato, chopped
  • 1 cup chopped mushrooms
  • 10 pimiento-stuffed Spanish green olives, sliced
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1 tub Knorr® Homestyle Stock - Beef
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1 box (14.1 oz.) refrigerated pie crusts
  • Vegetable oil for frying

Directions

  • Brown ground beef in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add tomato, mushrooms, olives, green onions, Knorr® Homestyle Stock - Beef and cumin and simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and stir in raisins; let cool slightly.
  • Unfold pie crusts; cut into 20 rounds with 2-1/2 to 3-inch round cookie cutter.
  • Spoon about 1 tablespoon beef mixture onto center of each round. Pinch dough around filling to seal. (If dough is dry, brush edges with water to help seal.)
