Best Bierock Recipe Ever
made it | 0 reviews |
"This recipe comes from a childhood memory. My mom was no Julia Childs, let me tell you, more like Bridget Jones. But when she made bierocks, they were good. I tried a lot of bierock recipes, but most of them called for frozen dough (yuck!). I use a bread machine, but that is not necessary. Mom's were good, mine are great!"

- Cook and stir onion in a nonstick skillet over medium heat until tender, about 5 minutes. Add ground chuck; cook and stir until browned, about 8 minutes. Drain well. Season with monosodium glutamate, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Reduce heat to low; simmer, stirring often, until flavors combine, about 5 minutes.
- Bring a lightly salted pot of water to a boil. Add cabbage; reduce heat to low. Simmer, covered, until cabbage is just tender, about 15 minutes. Drain well and let cool, 5 to 10 minutes. Fold into the ground chuck mixture.
- Place bread flour, milk, all-purpose flour, egg, sugar, butter, bread machine yeast, and salt in the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Run "Dough" cycle.
- Turn dough out onto a floured surface. Cut in half; roll each piece of dough to 1/3-inch thickness. Cut each piece into 5 smaller pieces.
- Place a large spoonful of ground chuck-cabbage mixture in the center of each piece of dough. Fold dough over and seal around filling.
- Arrange bierocks on greased baking sheets. Cover with a clean dish towel and place in a warm, dry place to rise for 1 hour.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Bake bierocks in the preheated oven until golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes.
- Cook's Notes:
- Substitute active dry yeast for the bread machine yeast if preferred.
- Make the meat mixture your own. You can add or subtract from the meat mixture: use ground pork, sprinkle cheese over meat once it's in the pastry, or add a little barbeque sauce to the meat. But don't change the dough - the secret is in the dough!
