"A German dish, these sweet dinner rolls are stuffed with ground beef, onion, and cabbage. A great alternative to the Finnish pasty!" — PUSHKEMAA

My mother in law is German and we make this same dish all of the time. She uses the same bread recipe, however I substitue a sweet refrigerator roll recipe and make them ahead. If I have leftovers I make cinnamon rolls for dessert. I also make several ahead and freeze them for later use--just make sure they are completely thawed before baking.
Hmm, not bad, but nothing special. Everyone commented that there was way too much bread for the meat filling. (Think about it - 1 lb of hamburger and 7 cups of flour???) I'd say to half the dough (or use it for something else like others did) and roll it out much thinner. I added garlic, paprika, and celery seed, and it was just okay.
The concept is fun, though. I think I'll try it with less bread and something like ham, swiss, and mustard inside.
My mother has been fixing these since I was tiny and now I've started doing the same. If you like more flavor in the filling, try adding celery seed. It really livens it up.
Simply fabulous. I confess, my recipe bears no resemblance to the original. I opted to use ground turkey, liberally seasoned with pepper and a garlic/salt seasoning. I made some very creamy Cheddar cheesy mashed potatoes andmixed into the browned turkey, then just for the helluva it, added some chopped steamed broccolli. filled the dough circles with this and baked and O MY HEAVENS. Family couldn't stop raving. Served with corn chowder, peanut butter cookies for dessert. All on a rainy blustery day. Thanks for the inspiration. What I made doesn't begin to be the original which I'm sure is wonderful too. But it was darned good!
This was perfect! i made half the recipe, with same amount of beef and did just onions instead of cabbage, i also added garlic and paprika to the beef. This came out so great, my inlaws gave me praise, and my brother in law ate two, these people are EXTREMELY hard to impress and very picky eaters so this recipe was awesome!
very tasty- a perfect lunch or dinner served with a cold german potato salad! The recipe sounds hard, but is actually very easy to do. The dough comes out perfectly, and I will try a different filling next time! I used fast rise yeast.
My husband has been talking about these for years so I decided to try this recipe and am very glad I did. Followed fairly close to recipe but added some shredded carrots and a garlic clove or two with meat. Had extra dough so I patted it out rectangle, put a layer of butter on top, sprinkled br. sugar and cinn. on then rolled it up and sliced 1/2 in slices. put in buttered round pan and let rise 1 hr or so. 350 for 30 min. Made a vanilla glaze from this site and added some cinn to it also. Husband and son said it could use more of the Br. sugar cinn mix. Next time :)Great way to use up leftovers.
These were fantastic! My family is German, so I used to eat bierocks as a kid, and this is the first time since my childhood that I have eaten them. They were just as I remembered. My family loved them, even my finiky 2 year old. Thanks Pam!
