How you say it all depends on where you are from. The basic terminology is that Beirocks is a Savory Meat Pie or Dumpling. Similar to Empanada, pirogi, or pirozhki, beirocks are a yeast dough pastry pocket sandwich with savory filling, originating in Prussia & most passionately served in KANSAS! In this recipe we use a combination of ground beef and chopped smoked bacon sausage.
Place ground beef in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat to brown the beef.
Once the beef is nicely brown, add the sausage, garlic, and onions and cook for an additional 5 minutes.
Add cabbage and seasoning to the pan and stir. Cover and reduce to low heat and simmer for 30 minutes.
Let cool at least 15 minutes. The filling can be made in advance and stored in the refrigerator until ready to assemble.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Divide bread dough into 10 equal balls (about 3 ounces each). On a floured surface, roll out each ball until it is ¼-inch thick. If it bounces back thicker, continue rolling until it stays the desired thickness.
Place ⅓ cup of filling in the center of each piece of flattened dough.
Pull the dough around the filling, pinching into a rectangle. Be sure the dough is pinched tightly.
Place each filled rectangle pinched side down into two large baking dishes lined with parchment paper, with each rectangle spaced at least 2-inches apart. Brush each bierock with egg.
Let the dough rise at room temperature for 45 minutes.
Place the baking dishes in the oven and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
You can make these in advanced and hold them in your fridge before baking for a couple days. You can also bake them off completely, let them cool and store them in the fridge for another day. Just heat them in a 300F oven for 20 minutes or so.
