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.

This is actually a German-Russian dish. My grandparents were German-Russian and this was a ethnic dish that was often made. Come to Sheboygan, Wisconsin and you can purchase these at several local restaurants. Fliesch bierock or kraut bierock.

my kids would eat the filing out of the skillet before i could make them.so id double the batch…..I used a bag of coleslaw so it would be easier ( and add carrots for extra veggie and flavor) after I cooked the hamburger with onion, I’d add the slaw and cook it down with some season salt and use the rhodes bread dough ….its still homemade… even if you take a few shortcuts… <3

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!

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!
