• Currently 4/5
3 1-lb loaves frozen bread dough
1 lb hamburger
8 cups shredded cabbage
1 medium onion, diced
2-4 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp pepper
2 Tbsp melted butter
1. Brown the meat, onions, and garlic in a large skillet. Drain the excess fat.
2. Add shredded cabbage and pepper. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Cook until cabbage is completely wilted.
3. Divide each loaf into 5 pieces. Roll each piece out until it is less than 1/2 inch thick. (When I was just starting out on my own,  I didn't have a rolling pin, so I just dampened my fingers and pressed the dough into the shape I wanted). Fill the dough circle or square with a 1/2 cup cabbage, onion and meat filling.
4. There are several ways that you can seal the dough.  I will share my two favorite ways.  A. Bring opposite corners of dough together in center. Press open edges together until surface is sealed. This creates a square shaped bierock.  B. Or bring two opposite sides together and press seems together. This results in a half circle shaped bierock.
5. Turn bierocks smooth side up. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Brush with melted butter if you wish.  Bake at 350 degrees for 18 - 20 minutes or until brown. Serve hot. Makes 15 bierocks (This recipe makes enough for 3 meals for my family of 5).

Note:  Leftover bierocks can be frozen.
