Barbecue Beef Sandwich Buns


Makes 8 buns.
1 cup warm water (100° to 110°F)
1 envelope Fleischmann's® Active Dry Yeast
2 tablespoons Spice Islands® Minced Onions
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
3/4 teaspoon salt
3 to 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
4 cups chopped cooked roast beef (about 1-1/2 pounds)
1/2 cup thick barbecue sauce
1/4 cup catsup
1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke
1/2 teaspoon prepared mustard


Directions
Place 1/4 cup warm water in large warm bowl. Sprinkle in yeast; stir until dissolved. Add remaining water, minced onions, sugar, butter, salt, and 1-1/2 cups flour; blend well. Stir in enough remaining flour to make soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 4 to 6 minutes. Place in greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 45 to 60 minutes.

In large bowl, combine roast beef, barbecue sauce, catsup, liquid smoke, and mustard. Set aside.
Punch dough down. Remove dough to lightly floured surface; divide into 8 equal pieces. Roll each piece to 5-inch circle. Place about 1/2 cup meat mixture in center of each. Pull up dough to enclose filling, and pinch at top to seal. Place, pinched sides up, on 2 greased baking sheets. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until almost doubled in size, about 30 to 45 minutes.

Bake at 375 F for 20 minutes or until done, switching positions of sheets halfway through baking time for even browning. Remove from sheets to wire racks. Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers; reheat to serve.
