I made these yesterday and reheated them today for lunch. They reheat beautifully in the microwave. We REALLY enjoyed them! They are excellent served with Sweet and Sour Sauce for dipping. So far, this is the only way I can get my toddlers to eat cabbage. Thanks for sharing.

I ate these as a kid growing up in the Sandhills of Nebraska and had no way of getting the recipe! Thanks! Now I feel like I'm at home again! Please pass the mustard and ketchup!

Very delicious! I grew up in Kansas eating this at a Catholic grade school. These were every bit as good as I remember them. Took a little time and preperation, but was fairly simple to make.

I first tried these on a trip to Nebraska 20+ years ago. I had long forgotten Runzas until I was reminded by this recipe. I compared it to the recipe card I had received from a relative and this is the same recipe. Runzas (Bierocks) are an easy and different way to use ground beef. They are easy to make...just have to patiently wait for the dough to rise.

Had an Oktoberfest party at our home and made these for appetizers. They were a lot of preparation, but the guest raved. Try German curry sauce #37911 with these and or mustard.

These were a lot of work - but in the end my DH was happy to have something that reminded him of Nebraska football.

WOW!! Cabbage? What Cabbage! These things are awesome! I followed the recipe exactly except for using elk instead of beef. Thanks to ShayK for the condiment advice, either ketchup or mustard is great with Runzas. I've seen variations with cheese and ketchup added to the mixture, might try that in the future. I look forward to lunch reheats this week! Thanks Normaone!!!!

Never heard of Runzas before but I can see now why they're so popular. Very mild tasting so a dip is nice to have on the side.
