The other day my friend said she was making Runzas. I had never heard of them so I did a google search and discovered that Beirocks and Runzas are the same thing. I'm from Kansas so I grew up calling them Beirocks. They are evidentually pretty common, but just have a lot of different names. Here is what Wikipedia had to say about them, "A runza (also called a bierock, fleischkuche or Kraut Pirok) is a yeast dough bread pocket with a filling consisting of beef, pork, cabbage or sauerkraut, onions, and seasonings. They are baked in various shapes such as a half-moon, rectangle, round (bun), square, or triangle. In Nebraska, the runza is usually baked in a rectangular shape. The bierocks of Kansas, on the other hand, are generally baked in the shape of a bun.I have eaten them, but I had never made beirocks before. So I thought I'd give it a try. After doing a recipe search and looking at many different variations of the recipe, I made up my own conglomeration of the ingredients I liked, and what I had in the house, and this is what I came up with. I had my Mom, Dad, and Sister over for lunch and they said they were "the best beirocks I have ever had!"I hope you enjoy them.
