According to Wikipedia (which is notoriously unreliable), bierocks are pastry pockets filled with ground beef, cabbage, and onions. They're kind of like empanadas, except these are from Germany or Russia or somewhere else over there.
Pillsbury Hot Roll Mix
1 lb. ground beef
3 cloves garlic
2/3 white onion, diced
1/4 head cabbage
1 tsp sugar
Prepare Hot Roll Mix according to directions.
Set dough aside to rest.
It should double in size.
Brown ground beef with onions, garlic, and salt/ pepper to taste.
Drain grease. Add cabbage, sugar, and more salt to taste, if needed. Cook over medium heat for 5 - 7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Once the dough has rested, roll out onto a floured surface.
Use a medium-sized, circular object to cut circles into the dough. (We used plastic bowls.) Use leftover dough to roll out again and cut more circles. Repeat until dough is all used.
Fill dough circles with meat/ cabbage filling.
Fold sides up, overlapping one bit at a time, until the opening is all sealed. This doesn't have to look perfect, just make sure it's all sealed.
Flip bierocks over so the seam is on the bottom.
Bake at 375 F (190 C) for 20 - 25 minutes, or until golden.
Brush tops with butter and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
These bierocks reheat in the microwave just fine, making them the perfect leftover for lunch.
