  1. I love these! I’ve made them a few times now and they’re a hit every time. They make for great portable leftovers as well. Thank you so much for this great recipe!I have one question, I wanted to make these when my family is in town, but my brother can’t eat pork. Do you think I can use 1 1/2 pounds of beef and omit the pork?
