Ingredients

For the dough

  • 4 1/2  Cups  Bisquick
  • 1  Cup  boiling water

For the beef filling

  • 1  Pound  ground beef
  • yellow onion, chopped 1/4 inch
  • 2  Teaspoons  restaurant-grind black pepper, divided
  • 1/2  medium head green cabbage, chopped 1/4 inch
  • 1  Pound  bagged sauerkraut
  • 1  Teaspoon  salt

Directions

For the dough

In medium bowl, stir Bisquick mix and boiling water until dough forms.

On surface sprinkled with Bisquick mix, roll dough in Bisquick mix to coat; knead 20 times. Divide dough into 6 balls.

Pat or roll each ball into 7-inch rounds. Place on cookie sheet.

For the beef filling

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Grease cookie sheet with shortening or cooking spray.

Brown the ground beef in a skillet. Add the onion and pepper and cook for another 3-5 minutes. Then, add the remaining ingredients and cook for 10-15 minutes, or until the cabbage reaches the desired consistency. Strain the filling and allow it to cool.

When the filling is completely cool, spoon about 1/2 cup of the mixture onto half of each round. Moisten edge of round with water.

Fold round over beef mixture; press edge with fork to seal. Cut 3 small slits in top of each crust to allow steam to escape.

Brush with egg wash. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until light golden brown.

German Shopping Tip

Try to use fresh sausage whenever you can; they are full of flavor and don't have the high level of preservatives and nitrates that packaged sausage has.

German Cooking Tip

Fresh sausage should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160 degrees.
