  • 1

    Heat the oven to 425°F. Sprinkle the work surface with half the flour. Unfold the pastry sheet on the floured surface. Cut the pastry into 4 (4-inch) circles with a cutter. Place the pastry circles onto a baking sheet.

    Season the beef as desired. Coat the beef with the remaining flour.

  • 4

    Heat the oil in a 6-quart saucepot over medium-high heat. Add the beef in 2 batches and cook until it's well browned, stirring often. Pour off any fat.

  • 5

    Stir the soup and broth in the saucepot and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium. Cook for 15 minutes or until the beef is cooked through and the sauce is thickened.
