I love the smell and taste of steakhouse rolls. I had been looking for this recipe for a long time. Although I can't have but one now, a few years back, I could have filled up on these before my dinner arrived. I usually had to take a to go box home...Hope you will enjoy

Cover dough and let rest for 10 minutes. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 8 to 10 minutes or until dough is smooth and elastic.

Roll dough over from 4 sides to knead lightly. Let rise again until double in size. Remove from bowl and on floured surface, shape into 12 rolls.
