DIRECTIONS

  • In large skillet, crumble meat. Stir over med-high heat until meat begins to brown. Push meat to one side of pan and drain fat.
  • Add chopped onions and garlic to the meat. Continue cooking until onion is limp, but not browned.
  • Add cabbage, 1/2 cup water, beef buillon cube, oregano and cumin. Stir.
  • Cover pan, reduce heat and simmer until cabbage is tender and juices have cooked away, about 20 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Dissolve yeast in 1/4 cup of the warm water. Let stand 5 minutes.
  • In large bowl of electric mixer, combine remaining water with salt, sugar, shortening and eggs. Add yeast and two copy of the flour. Beat on medium speed for about 5 minutes, scraping sides of bowl several times.
  • Cover bowl and set in a warm place until mixture is bubbly, about 30-40 minutes. Put bowl back on heavy mixer and add 4 more cups flour, one cup at a time. Or you can do this by hand. Knead until soft and resillient, but not sticky, about 5 minutes, adding remaining flour as needed.
  • Place in greased bowl, turn over, cover and set in warm place until almost doubled, about 1-1 1/2 hours Punch down dough and cut in half. Put one half back in the bowl and cover.
  • Roll the other half of the dough on a lightly floured board into a 12x24 inch rectangle. Cut into 8 pieces, each 4 inches square. Repeat with remaining dough.
  • Place about 1/3 cup of the filling on each square. Bring opposite corners of each square to meet in center. Or, you can make it a triangle and pinch 1/4 inch of edges, with water if necessary, to seal. Press with tines of a fork to get a good seal.
  • With spatula, transfer each to a greased baking sheet, placing about 1 inch apart. Cover lightly with plastic wrap and let stand in warm place about 20 minutes.
  • Unwrap and bake in a 375F oven until golden brown, about 30 minutes.
  • Melt tops with melted butter and then let cool slightly before serving. Can be served at room temperature.
