Then you drizzle it with a sauce.  You may not like this one if you are not a fan of salty because this recipe is quite salty. So if you are not a fan of salty you may want to adjust the recipe a little.  Worcestershire sauce and soy sauce is where the salty flavor comes.  So if you want it less salty, be sure to use reduced sodium soy sauce. This will be a great recipe for warm weather.  It’s all made on the stove top!  With about 30 minutes, ground beef potluck pockets come together.
