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.

These are actually a Russian recipe, and we have restaurants throughout Nebraska and Kansas and Iowa called “Runza” that specializes in these tasty sandwiches. There are so many variations, and I make them at home too, but none better than the real thing :)

I have made these for years. First started with the recipe shown, then switched to drained sauerkraut and added Worcestershire sauce for more flavor. We usually make 4 dozen to carry during hunting season so I decided to use Rhodes frozen Texas size rolls. They work great., just let them thaw and roll them out. Much faster and my family loves them.

Our family makes these too and we’ve always used sauerkraut. Make sure to drain the juice otherwise there’s too much moisture. Delicious!

MY Grandmother made these when I was young, but she used strained Sour Kraut not cabbage. The tangy bite added to the ground beef is the awesome taste I remember. Plain old cabbage seems blagh by comparison… If you want to zest it up try the Sour Kraut!

Does frozen bread dough work as well as making it from scratch? Does anyone have problems with the seams when you are baking them?

Thanks!

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!
