Bierocks (beer rocks)

Okay, so I just learned today that these tasty staples are not as common in other parts of the country as they are here.

So tell me, can you go to your local sandwich shop or bakery and order a bierock?

Do you love them, or just really, really like them?

We have pierogi, but they're not really the same.

Meat pies in general are awesome and I love them. The Texas bastardization of kolache often has meat of some sort, so that's somewhat close. And the cajun meat pies I used to get in East Texas were amazing.

Now I must find bierock!

This is the first time I've ever heard of them. They sound delicious.

I think I might have to get a good recipe and make 'em, since I've never had it and it looks Yum

If you find a good recipe, let me know.

I certainly would have no luck finding these in the area in which I reside...

I'll post the recipe after work today. You can save a lot of time by using frozen bread dough or pizza dough. It's basically seasoned ground beef, onion, and cabbage inside a pouch of bread.

I still amused that I made it past 50 years old without realizing that these things are regional. All the decent bakeries have bread, doughnuts, pastries, and bierocks. I guess it's the German Russian Mennonite influence. They are even more common than zwiebach.

Oh... in that case, I think I have eaten them. Except they were called runzas. Either way, no one in the New Orleans area would have any idea what they were. My wife grew up eating them in Kansas.

Zwiebach... also not present here.

Bierocks

2 lbs ground beef
1 onion, diced
4 cloves minced garlic
1/2 head shredded cabbage
2 tsp salt
2 tsp pepper
1 tsp sugar
2 pounds of white bread dough or pizza dough

In a large frying pan, combine the ground beef with the onion, garlic, salt and pepper. When the beef is just starting to brown, add the cabbage, and sugar. Cook over medium heat until cabbage is wilted and beef is browned but not overdone.

Divide the dough into four equal half-pound pieces. For each piece, roll out the dough roughly into a square shape and cut into quarters. Fill each portion with a 1/4 cup of filling. Pull the corners up to the top and pinch the edges, forming a little pouch. Like this. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 20-25 minutes or until browned. Brush with melted butter.

These freeze very well. Don't brush them with butter if you're going to freeze them. If anyone wants the recipe for the breading let me know. A lot of people use pre-made pizza dough.
