Description

A German recipe. I actually love these so much, I’ve been known to eat them for breakfast. And if you’ve got cabbage haters in the family, just substitute rice!

Ingredients

  • 2 packages (7g Packet) Yeast
  • ½ cups Sugar
  • 1-½ Tablespoon Salt
  • 3-½ cups Warm Water
  • ½ cups Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Vinegar
  • 8 cups Flour
  • 2 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 1 whole Onion, Chopped
  • 1 pound Ground Beef
  • 1 whole Cabbage, Shredded
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste

Preparation

Mix the yeast, sugar, sat, warm water, oil, vinegar, and flour together. Let rise 1 hour. Punch down. Let rise 45 minutes. Roll out to about 1/16″ thick.

Saute garlic and onions; add ground beef and fry until browned. Add cabbage and fry until tender (tastes better if cabbage is browned well). Salt and pepper to taste.

Cut the dough into 5×5″ squares and put a generous portion of the beef mixture on the middle of each square. Gather all 4 corners together and pinch shut each diagonal seam toward the center. Turn upside down on a baking sheet.

Bake for 20 minutes at 400 degrees. Brush with butter when they come out of the oven.

My mother gave me this recipe and they are hands down the best cabbage pockets I’ve ever made. The dough is so good that I use the recipe for when I make dinner rolls.

This is just like a recipe I got from a family friend that she calls Kraut Burgers. Everyone loves them and they are just as good left over. She would sometimes use frozen bread dough, but most of the time I use my yeast roll recipe and make the dough in the bread machine. I like to dip them in all kinds of mustard. My favorite is this Southwest Spicy mustard that Wal-Mart sells (the Great Value brand). If the idea of making the dough scares you, I have even resorted to using Pillsbury dough from a can. Everyone should try this, even if you think your family won’t eat the cabbage. My kids think they don’t like cabbage, but they sure love Kraut Burgers!

I made these for lunch today and they were really good! I halved the recipe and I had quite a bit of dough left over so I made some rolls with it. I also added a little bit of swiss cheese in with the filling…yum!
