“These meat-and-cabbage-mixture filled sweet rolls make a great main dish, and are also great as a snack. They reheat well, so leftovers are also great! Sauerkraut can be used in place of the cabbage for more of a 'kraut flavor'.”

Directions

  1. To Make Sweet Dough: In a medium bowl combine the yeast, sugar and water and mix together; let stand 10 minutes. Stir in flour, dry milk, baking powder and shortening, then knead mixture for 10 minutes, adding as little flour as necessary. Cover bowl with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place for 30 minutes, then knead again.
  2. To Make Filling: Meanwhile, brown beef, sausage and onion in a large skillet over medium high heat. Drain extra fat from skillet, then stir in cabbage, mustard, salt and pepper and cook for 5 minutes. Add cheese and cook, stirring, until cheese is melted.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  4. Flatten a piece of dough. Place large spoonful of meat filling onto dough and fold over to form a round bun. Lay folded-side-down in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Repeat with remaining dough and filling.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.

Oh, my goodness. My girlfriend and I have been making these for over 34 years together in batches of 100-120 at a time. They freeze great. Just BEWARE: Everyone wants the recipe and they will steal them if the get the chance. Thanks, Kim, first time I've "seen" the recipe. We made ours off scribbled notes of a German grandmother. Easier way to do the dough is to use a bread machine recipe for dinner rolls.

Very Good. I split the recipe in half and made half with sauerkraut and half with cabbage. Both were good. I recommend increasing the amount of shredded cabbage though because it wilts down a lot. I did cut the amount of salt by half and the pepper by half. Velveeta is hard to shred so I cubed it and it melted in nicely. I used turkey Italian sausage and ground sirloin. The stuffing was moist without being greasy. It makes a lot so I froze some and I'm looking forward to eating it again soon. For those who haven't made bread, the shortening should be melted, cooled to lukewarm, and added to the yeast and water mixture before the flour. I will make this again.

We first tasted BIEROCKs in Kansas two years ago. At the airport I purchased a Kansas Cookbook just to get the recipe; I haven't found it anyplace else. The book states the recipe was brought to Kansas by the Volga Germans who emigrated from Russia. And are we ever glad they did. I freeze these in foil so our older sons can just grab a few and microwave and eat "on the run." Marian E.
