Bierocks

This recipe for German Hamburgers or “Bierocks” came to me from my Great Grandmother Hans (who also gave me Homemade Noodles!)  All my life I thought my mom was saying “Beer Rocks”, how funny!  Basically, if you make homemade dough, this is not a dish to do when you are in a hurry, but for the purpose of this post, we will snip off some of the time by using a pre-made dough.  (We will have a dough making lesson another day!)  The filling is pretty quick. Purchase your favorite frozen or refrigerated dough at the market and while it thaws or comes to room temperature, prepare the filling…

Ingredients:

FOR THE FILLING (This makes approximately 12 “Beer Rocks”, so you will need 12 little balls of dough)

  • 1  1/2  pounds of Ground Beef
  • 2 Tbsp. of Olive Oil
  • 1 Medium Cabbage (chopped)
  • 1 Yellow Onion (diced)
  • 1 Tbsp. Paprika
  • 2 Tbsp. Worcestershire  Sauce
  • 1 tsp. Lemon Pepper
  • 3 Cloves Minced Garlic
  • Salt and Pepper (to taste)

Directions:

Preheat Oven to 350.  In a large pot, saute’ the onions just a few minutes until they begin to sweat and add the beef.  Cook the beef until brown and stir in the cabbage, garlic, paprika, Worcestershire and lemon pepper. Salt and pepper to taste.  Place a large scoop of filling in the center of each flattened circle of dough.  Bring the sides up and around the filling to seal it.  Brush on the egg wash and bake  for approximately 30 minutes.   This is so fun and I hope your family loves them!!
