    Add more flour if too sticky, or a little water if too dry.

    In a separate bowl, combine beef, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika until thoroughly mixed.

    And sample a cube or three, you know, just to make sure it's good.

    Wrap about 1 tbsp of beef around a cube of cheese. Then, wrap about 2 tbsp of the tot mixture around that.
