  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. To Make Dough: In a large bowl, mix together milk and oil. Stir in eggs, yeast, sugar, salt and 5 cups of flour. Mix well adding remaining cup of flour as necessary to form kneadable dough. Knead for a few minutes, then cover bowl and let dough rise one hour in a warm place.
  3. To Make Filling: Brown beef in a large saucepan; do not drain juices. Add onion and cabbage to skillet and continue cooking until onion is soft; add salt and pepper to taste. Let cool.
  4. After dough has risen, roll out hunks of dough (about the size of tennis balls) as thin as possible. Place 1/2 slice of cheese on dough, top with filling, then place other 1/2 of cheese on top of filling. Fold over and seal like a turnover (moistening edges with water may help seal them). Place on a baking sheet, brush with egg wash and, if desired, sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  5. Bake in a preheated 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) oven for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Serve immediately or cool and freeze for later. To reheat frozen bierrocks simply bake until hot.

Wonderful pastry! I added about 1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce and chopped garlic to the filling. I also used sharp cheddar instead for more flavor. This is a keeper!

I wasn't too sure about this recipe, but they came out pretty good. Make sure not to use too much dough for each. The ones I prepared at the beginning came out quite larger than the others. M...

The kids knicknamed these "Irish Cheeseburgers". We love them. The dough is great for any filling(homemade pocket sandwiches). Use up leftovers: sloppy joes,taco meat. Try using up sm portions o...

These were really good, considering the average reviews. I loved the dough! I did add some garlic powder, paprika, and worcestershire sauce to the beef. They were a bit time consuming, but I wil...

I loved the pastry for this recipe. I will use it for dinner rolls and as a basic pastry to fill with other things.
