Cook Time
2 hrs
  • Dough:
  • 2 cups (500 mL) all-purpose flour (approx.)
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) each vegetable oil and water
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) white vinegar
  • 2 Ontario Eggs, slightly beaten
  • Filling:
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) vegetable oil
  • 1-1/2 cup (375 mL) chopped Ontario Onions, minced
  • 2 cloves Ontario Garlic, finely minced
  • 1 pkg (227 g) Ontario White Button or Crimini Mushrooms, chopped
  • 200 g thinly sliced Montreal smoked meat, finely chopped (1-1/2 cup/375 mL)
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) Montreal steak spice
  • 1 Ontario Egg, lightly beaten
  1. Dough: In large bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. In medium bowl, combine oil, water, vinegar and eggs. Stir egg mixture into flour until dough sticks together. In bowl, knead for 5 to 8 minutes or until smooth, adding additional flour to keep it from sticking to the bowl. Form into ball, cover with clean tea towel; let rise for 1 hour at room temperature.

  2. Filling: Meanwhile, in large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onions and garlic, stirring occasionally until caramelized, about 10 minutes. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until juices are mostly evaporated. Add smoked meat and steak spice, stirring until heated through. Cool 5 minutes; mix in egg and set aside.

  3. On lightly floured surface, roll dough very thinly into 14- x 20-inch (35 x 50 cm) rectangle. Add cooled filling along wide edge; roll into a rope shape to enclose filling. Press dough to mark off 8 portions, twist to enclose filling. Separate; pinch to seal and place without touching, twisted end down on large parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake in 375°F (190⁰C) for 25 minutes or until golden. Serve warm.
