Day 16, 25 Days of Christmas Tips

16) Frohliche Weihnachten
Here's a yummy German recipe to add to your Christmas stash. It's for Beirocks, or Runzas. They're little dough pockets stuffed with cabbage and beef. Even if you don't think you'll like them, believe me - you will!

1 (1-lb) loaf frozen bread 4 C shredded cabbage
1 small onion, diced ½ tsp salt
½ lb. ground beef ¼ C butter

Divide thawed bread dough into 6 pieces and roll into balls. Sauté onion in a large saucepan until browned; add beef and cook until beef loses its red color (do not overcook). Stir in cabbage and salt. Cover and steam until cabbage is wilted. Remove from heat and let cool.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Roll each ball of dough into a 5x5 inch square. Fill the center with about ½ cup of beef mixture. Bring opposite corners of dough together and seal. Place the smooth side down on a lightly greased cookie sheet, and flatten slightly.

Bake for 20-25 minutes. Remove from oven and butter top of each pastry. Serve with mustard.
