    ElizabethKnicely's Note:

    I make Bierocks every fall for Oktoberfest. Happily, this coincides with sales on cabbage. If you have not had a Bierock (or Runza ans Nebraskans call them) you are in for a delightful surprise! They are the German equivalent of a Hot Pocket, only much tastier.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 6



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Brown the meat, onions and garlic in a large skillet. Drain the excess fat.
    2. 2
      Add shredded cabbage and pepper. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Cook until cabbage is completely wilted.
    3. 3
      Divide each loaf into 5 pieces. Roll each piece out until it is less than 1/2 inch thick. (When I was just starting out on my own, I didn't have a rolling pin, so I just dampened my fingers and pressed th dough into the shape I wanted). Fill the dough circles or square with a 1/2 cup cabbage, onion and meat filling.
    4. 4
      There are several ways that you can seal the dough. I will share my favorit two ways.
    5. 5
      A. Bring opposite corners of dough together in center. Press open edges together until surface is sealed. This creates a square shaped Bierock.
    6. 6
      B. Or bring two opposite sides together and press seams together. This results in a half circle shaped Bierock.
    7. 7
      Turn Bierocks smooth side up. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Brush with melted butter if you wish.
    8. 8
      Bake at 350°F for 18-20 minutes or until brown. Serve hot. Makes 15 Bierocks. (This recipe makes enough for 3 meals for my family of 5).
    9. 9
      I use the leftover cabbage to make Beef Stew with Cabbage ad serve it with the Bierocks for dinner. Bierocks also make a tasty lunch. Any leftover Bierocks can be frozen.
