Bierocks—handheld buns filled with beef, cabbage, and cheese—are definitely tasty, but they take a long time to make. We wanted the same great flavors in casserole form.
Why This Recipe Works
Bierocks, or stuffed meat buns popular in many plains states, are known for their savory meat and cheese filling encased in slightly sweet dough. But making a batch of bierocks is a real project; we wanted to streamline the recipe into a one-dish meal. After spooning our cheesy meat filling into a 13 by 9-inch casserole dish, we borrowed the dough from our Quicker Cinnamon Bun recipe to use for a topping. Be sure to let the casserole cool slightly before serving to help the filling set.
