How To Season and Re-Season Cast Iron Cookware

The following is a small excerpt from “The Hillbilly Housewife’s Cast Iron Cookbook“. It’s the most frequent question I get about cooking with cast iron skillets.  Over time, cast iron cookware develops a thin protective coating known as “seasoning” from the natural fats and oils associated with the cooking process. This coating fills in all […]

Slow Cooker Reviews

I’m a big fan of crockpot cooking. No matter how busy I get or how much running around town I’ve got to do, I know a yummy home-cooked meal will be ready when we get home. As you know, I’ve recently written and published a Kindle cookbook of Chicken Crockpot recipes. It’s been very well […]

    These are also called Bierocks as in “beerrocks” all one word. Green pepper added to this and cream of mushroom gravy to serve with is yummy! Heard them called “Cabbage Burgers” too and served with ketchup, hot sauce, or BBQ sauce. Personal preference of course!

  2. Anna says

    Bierocks! I make these all the time! I use the artisan bread in 5 minutes a day recipe for the dough. We use onion, garlic, shredded cabbage, hamburger, salt/pepper, dry mustard and dill weed. Serve with curry ketchup. Amazing served with a good homebrew! We have wanted to try it with drained sauerkraut in place of the cabbage but have not gotten there yet.

    Kinda sad that there is no beer in the recipe. I made the Munich Muffins for breakfast, not really a breakfast food. They were a savory not sweet muffin. And, I thought I would make this to go with those, based on the name of the recipe. Don’t have cabbage though so will try another day!

    I used to live in Kansas. Bierocks are very popular there, and very good. I make them according to a recipe in an older cookbook I have – it is very simple but good. The filling is chopped onions and cabbage, fried (and crumbled) hamburger, salt, and pepper. The only thing I add is a little cheese. I make whole-wheat bread to put the filling in. Interestingly, the cookbook I have that has this recipe in it calls these “Runzas”, not “Bierocks”.

    My mom ended up with this recipe when I was a little girl. Back way when they had kinda like a WIC kinda program. They shared cheap and healthy meals. We add cheese as well. They are so yummy and filling. I will make a whole bunch and freeze them the family will take one out and heat in microwave when they want one. I also make Amish white bread dough instead of buying the premade dough. But we cook from scratch typically. When I summit the recipe I just put what my mom gave me. I am glad it seems to be a hit!
