Easy Dinner Casserole: German Bierock 14

Instead of making the real German Bierocks, which are meat and cabbage filled pastries try out this easy dinner casserole. It has all of the taste, but less of the work. This take on Bierocks is a Kansas dish that I’d like to share with you.

This makes a hardy dinner on its own, but if you’d like a side dish, I recommend something light such as applesauce, sliced tomatoes, sliced beets or a yogurt based dip.

There is a great deal of conjecture about the origin of Bierocks, sometimes called Runza. Some say it’s from Germany, exactly the Volga community. Other say it has a Russian background. Still others say that Beirocks come from a Mennonite community. No matter, this easy casserole is tasty and something different to cook for your family.

Give it a try and enjoy!
