Hoisin Beef Purses #SundaySupper


Hoisin Beef Purses wrap tender shredded hoisin flavored beef and pickled vegetables in flaky puff pastry. A unique bite for your next holiday get together or tapas dinner!

I love sampling hors d’oeuvres at a party. A bit of this, a bite of that. Grab a plate and take inventory with your eyes for which ones you need to maybe try first before they’re gone. Eventually I try most of them. Some I’ll even ask the host for the recipe.
When it comes to throwing my own party I want things to go as smooth as possible. I plan my party from start to finish.
Here’s a few tips I’ve found help make a gathering a success.

  • Mix your menu to include hot and cold items. Guests appreciate variety but keep choices to just a few, 4 to 6 is ideal.
  • Set out a charcuterie or vegetable platter for people to pick at themselves. I found my guests like the comfort of foods they know and love.
  • Beverages should include non-alcoholic choices and water. So many times I just want a sip of water to clear my palate before tasting another appetizer. Also it is the ultimate low calorie drink! 😉
  • Have an exit strategy. We have all had those guests that do not recognize that the party is over. A gentle thank you all for coming and have a safe trip home can be worked into the evening at the appropriate time.
  • Most of all, have fun! After all it is a party!

This week Sunday Supper reminds us that the holiday season is filled with parties, sometimes too many to keep track of. We want to help with our best quick and easy Holiday Party Recipes that you can whip up in flash!

I chose to make Hoisin Beef Purses. This is a great way to use up leftover beef. I made a Certified Angus Beef ® brand Prime Rib Roast and had a bit leftover. It was a big roast!

Hoisin sauce adds that Asian BBQ flavor to the beef. Balance the sweet tart flavor of Hoisin sauce with a bit of sour in the form of pickled vegetables. I added red bell peppers and carrots to the mix for vibrant color in an otherwise brown dish.

  5. Love this idea – it looks so much easier than the Hoisin Steak Bundles I used to make (but stopped because they were too annoying to make). Look forward to trying it for my next party!
