Bierox Casserole

Recipe by  

"A Bierox is a German hamburger. Bread dough is filled with ground beef, cabbage and seasonings to make a tasty alternative to the American hamburger. This casserole adds cheese to the recipe, and puts crescent rolls on top instead of putting the filling inside of the bread."

Aspenglade, your casserole is SO easy! Thanks for the idea.I grew up in a German Catholic community, and Bierox (we spell Bierochs) are absolutely delicious. A couple variations we have used are adding sauerkraut with the cabbage, adding an envelop of onion soup mix, and/or using monterrey jack cheese. The original recipe doesn't call for cheese at all. It also calls for bread dough. You can buy the frozen dinner rolls (easy!). And they are delicious with Dijon mustard or spicy beer and braut mustard. In the original version you roll the dough into a square, place a large couple spoonfuls of hamburger mixture in the middle and pull up corners and pinch together and bake until brown. For crescent rolls, pinch two together to form a square, roll out and then pinch corners. Yummy!

I gave this recipe 3 stars because I didn't think it had much flavor and seemed like it was missing something. I didn't care for it, but my husband and son liked it, so maybe it was just me?

OMG this was SOOOO GOOD! My husband and I used to make bierochs from scratch but we are usually too busy to do that anymore. I was really skeptical of this recipe but it was amazing! I did end up putting in two cloves of garlic because they were on the small side...and I just couldn't use velveta for health reasons, so I cut the amount of cheese way down and just used shredded cheddar and it turned out fabulous! Thank you so much for sharing this easy, delicious recipe! Top 5 recipe for us now!

I did make one adjustment by adding grated Muenster cheese instead of processed cheese. Other than that one small change this was easy to prepare and very tasty. My family devoured it. Next time I will have to double the recipe!

This was ok. I added cream of mushroom soup to the hamburger cabbage mixture and put the crescent rolls on the bottom and the top, with cheese sprinkled over the top of the cabbage mixture.

New Family Favorite!! The only change I did to the recipe is put 2lbs of hamburger instead of 1lbs. Only because that is how our beef is packaged. The ratio of hamburger and cabbage seemed just right to me. Great, easy recipe!! Will make again!!!

This is very similar to my Dad'd favorite recipe. Our family makes this but adds Taco seasoning into the beef mixture and call it Russian Taco's.
