Kraut Bierocks Recipe:German

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'.

1 1/2 (.25 ounce) packages active dry yeast

1/2 cup white sugar

2 cups warm water

4 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup powdered milk

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 cup shortening

1 pound lean ground beef

1 pound ground Italian sausage

1 cup chopped onion

3 cups shredded cabbage

3 tablespoons prepared mustard

2 teaspoons salt

2 teaspoons ground black pepper

1/2 cup shredded, processed American cheese

1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese


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 9×13 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.
