  • Large Bowl
  • baking sheet



  • 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp Red Mill Active Dry Yeast, Recommended
  • 1 teaspoons Salt
  • 1 cups Water
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup buttermilk or whole milk
  • 1/2 cup butter (cubed)


  • 1 pound Ground beef
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground white pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 large onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 pound Shredded cabbage (cooked and drained)


  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, yeast, sugar, and salt. Whisk together until combined.
  • Heat the water, milk, and butter in a small saucepan over medium heat until the butter is melted and the mixture is hot (but not boiling).
  • Pour the hot liquid into the dry ingredients and mix with a wooden spoon until combined.
  • Beat in the eggs one at a time, stirring until each egg is fully incorporated before adding the next. Once all of the eggs have been added, knead the dough until it is soft and elastic.
  • Cover the bowl and let the dough rise in a warm place for 1 hour.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the filling by browning the ground beef and onion in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once cooked through, add the salt and white pepper.
  • Once the dough has finished rising, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and roll it out into a large rectangle into a circle, about ¼-inch thick.
  • Spread the cooked meat mixture over the dough, leaving about an inch of space around all edges. Sprinkle with the cooked cabbage.
  • Beginning at one end, roll the dough up tightly into a round shape. Place them onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • Bake in a preheated 375°F oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Serve warm with your favorite dipping sauce.


  • You can also use ground turkey or pork in place of ground beef.
  • For a vegetarian option, you can fill the bierocks with sautéed vegetables such as mushrooms, bell peppers, and onions.
  • If you don’t have active dry yeast on hand, you can substitute with 1 tablespoon of baking powder.
  • Try adding some shredded cheese to the filling for an extra cheesy kick.
  • For a sweeter version, replace the ground beef with chopped apples and cinnamon sugar.
