Ground Beef and Cabbage Piroshki

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Top Review by Scott Orlowski

Yummy! Everyone in my family loved it. I substituted pre-packaged pre-shredded mild cheddar cheese for the american cheese, just because it's what I had in the fridge. We also skipped the chili sauce, so I can't comment on that. The mustard in the recipe really gives a pleasing flavor boost. I had a hard time getting six squares out of my pie crust mix (Jiffy). There was just enough pastry, so I couldn't get the last two shaped like squares. Next time, I will use two boxes of pie crust mix and discard the scraps. If you do this however, remember to roll it out thin--about 1/16 inch. It helps to wet the edges of the pastry squares when you pinch the edges together. I served it with homemade mushroom soup and a microwaved bag of frozen mixed vegetables with butter and pepper. The Piroshki was filling--nobody ate more than one.
