Steak-Umm's Enchilada






1 lb ground beef or 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 teaspoon garlic powder (I prefer fresh minced)
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon oregano
2 teaspoons chili powder (more or less for your taste)
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
3 cups shredded cheese (I like the jack or cheddar combos)
1 (10 ounce) can enchilada sauce (I prefer the green sauce)
olive (optional)
12 Steak Umm's
Directions:
  • Take Steak Umms out of package and separate but don't take paper off the bottom. .Let defrost slightly so it becomes pliable to form an enchilada shell.
  •   If using chicken, boil chicken in water.
  • Then rinse and shred with fork.
  • Add onion and garlic.
  • If using ground beef, brown with onion and garlic, drain.
  • Add next 7 ingredients (Worcestershire sauce through black pepper).
  • In 10×13 baking pan, pour just enough enchilada sauce in the bottom to coat the bottom of the pan.
  • Fill each Steak Umm's, length wise with a spoonful of meat mixture.
  • Cheese, onions, and/or olives can be put inside each enchilada at this time, if desired.
  • Roll Steak Umm using the paper as a guide and place seam side down in pan.
  • Continue with remaining Steak Umms.
  • Pour remaining enchilada sauce over tortillas and top with cheese (additional olives may be added if desired).
  • Bake in 350 degree oven for 20 minutes 
  • Top with sour cream

LC Steak Umm's Manocotti and Lasagna









Preheat oven to 375o
Filling
1 small container of Whole Milk Ricotta
1 cup shredded whole milk mozzarelal (plus extra for topping)
1/2 beaten egg
1 package of Splenda (or two pinches of sugar)
pinch of parsley
Mix together
4 sleeves of Steak Umms
1 cup of sauce (I use Hunt's no sugar)
You are going to take one steak umm and put it on another leaving the paper on bottom of that.. Repeat with 2nd steak umm...

Microwave in 10 second intervals until slightly defrosted..
(If you cook any longer the steak umm will fall to pieces)
Take 1/2 the cheese mixture and fill length wise (pic above). Roll into manocotti shape.
Top with sauce and extra mozerella
Bake for 30 minutes.
* This recipe will less firm then regular manocotti due to the steak umms but you will not miss the noodles at all..
enjoy.

Same idea but in Lasagna!!
