Bierox is a delicious blend of ground beef, cabbage and onions inside a homemade roll.
I hope you give them a try, they are so satisfying and kind of like those certain brand of
potato chips, I bet you can’t eat just one!
FOR THE FILLING:
Butter Or Vegetable Oil
Shredded Cabbage Or Slaw Mix
4 ounces, weight
Garlic, Finely Diced
Salt and Pepper, to taste
FOR THE BREAD:
Plus 2 Tablespoons Warm Water (110-115 Degrees)
For the filling:
In a large skillet, brown the ground beef. When beef is browned, remove from skillet to
large bowl. Drain extra grease from skillet. Add butter to melt and then add cabbage,
mushrooms, onion, and garlic. Season with salt and pepper (about 1/2 teaspoon salt and
1/4 teaspoon black pepper). Cook over medium-high heat until cabbage is cooked
through. Remove from skillet into the bowl with the ground beef. Stir well. Cover and
cool in the refrigerator while you make the bread.
For the bread:
In a mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add oil and sugar and let stand for 5
minutes. Add the egg, salt, and enough flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured
surface; knead 3-5 minutes. Do not let the dough rise. Divide into 12 pieces; shape each
into a ball. Flatten each ball into about a 3 to 4-inch circle; add 2 heaping tablespoons of
filling to the center and fold dough around to completely wrap the filling. Pinch edges
to seal and flatten to a hamburger bun-like shape.
Place rolls on a greased or lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough and filling,
placing the rolls about 3 inches apart on your baking sheet. Cover and let rest for 10
Meanwhile preheat oven to 425 degrees. Bake for 8 to 12 minutes or until golden
brown. While rolls are still warm brush with melted butter. Remove from pans to wire
racks to cool.
