BIEROCKS EASY RECIPE (Main Dishes, Beef)

INGREDIENTS:

1 Package Active Dry Yeast
1/4 Cup Warm Water
1/4 Cup Warm Milk
2 Tablespoons Sugar
3 Tablespoons Butter
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
2 to 2 1/4 Cups All Purpose Flour
1 Beaten Egg
1 Pound Ground Beef
1 Onion
1/2 Teaspoon Galic Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Can Saurkraut

Directions:

Soften the yeast in a medium saucepan with warm water. Combine the milk, sugar, butter, and salt in a separate bowl. Heat and stir until the butter melts. Add about 1 cup of flour and beat well. Add the egg and beat well. Stir in the softened yeast. Stir in enough flour to make a stiff dough. Turn out and knead on a lightly floured surface. Knead until smooth and elastic for about 5 minutes. Place the dough in a greased bowl and cover it. Let the dough rise in a warm place until it doubles for 1 to 1 1/4 hours. Cook the beef, onion, salt, and then drain. Add the sauerkraut. Punch the dough down. Divide the dough. Roll out the dough and put the meat filling in it. Dampen the pastry edges then seal the edges. Bake in the oven at 375 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes. Let the bierocks cool a little while and then serve.

My Thoughts:

The first time I had Bierocks I absolutely fell in love with them. They are so delicious! I was at a family member's house when these wonderful beef pastries first touched my palette. Ok, now I sound like a professional blogger, don't I? I remember eating two or three and then the dough swelled in my belly. I was forced to stretch out on the couch and just moan with fullness. You should have seen me. I am sure that you are glad you didn't. It was such a sight.

If you don't mind hearing about my day I will be glad to share with you here. I cleaned up in the kitchen and worked on some laundry. After I finished those chores I visited my mother at her house. It was her birthday on Friday. I was unable to visit her because I went to the local farmer's market with my daughter. She had about seven different cookies for sale. Her newest item was a strawberry crinkle cookie that sold out very well. One customer, in particular, was very interesting. He was almost seven feet tall by my estimation. He sported a full beard that was speckled with gray hairs. He had bright blue eyes and spoke in the deepest voice I think I have ever heard. He was like a giant and I am 5 foot 11 inches. He softly asked my daughter if he could have two of the strawberry crinkle cookies. He slowly handed my daughter the money and took the cookies in his large hand which resembled a bunch of bananas. He gave my daughter a little smile and said "Thank you" as he walked away.

After visiting my mother at her house, my daughter wanted to go for a drive. We made a large circle on the outer paved roads here in the area. Sometimes a drive is a nice thing to do.

More Information On Bierocks:

Bierocks were commonly consumed by European blue-collar workers as a popular staple. Over time German Russian Mennonites brought the beefy dish to the United States when they immigrated in the 1870s. Eventually, bierocks were found popular among those living in the West. Kansas is the state that is most popular for bierocks. You can read more about Why Bierocks Are A Kansas Staple
