Top with chimichurri sauce. Top that with Follow Your Heart Bleu Cheese Crumbles or Crumbed Feta.
Pinch edges firmly to close and serve!
Notes: Try Sharon’s Chimichurri Sauce.
USE ON TEXAS TOAST WITH JUST EGG FOLDS
On one slice Texas toast bread spread with mustard and top with prepared horseradish. On second slice drizzle with ketchup.
Place a mound of STICKY BEEF on horseradish.
Toast JUST EGG FOLD or microwave till steamy hot. Then place on ketchup toast, then drizzle more ketchup on top of egg. Close, cut in half and eat. Wonderful combo!

How about a STICKY BEEF appetizer or lunch PLATE with bread as an option?
Mound STICKY BEEF onto center of appetizer plate. Surround it with spoonfuls of mustard, ketchup, horseradish and roasted garlic (I used Christopher Ranch brand). If you want a touch of bread, then what we did was offer a fresh Italian loaf (not toasted), cut into squares.
HOW ABOUT STICKY BEEF AND BEANS?
Why not add some of the Sticky Beef to some beans and use as a spread for crackers? Or as a filling for soft tacos and hard tacos, burritos, wraps and on…I used chili beans, but any bean will work
