These freeze wonderfully and can be wrapped individually for a quick lunch.

Beerocks (Bierocks)


  • 1 Batch pizza dough
  • 1.5 pounds ground beef
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 2 cups shredded cabbage
  • Salt, pepper, garlic to taste
  • 3 cups runny mashed potatoes (I use instant)


  1. Brown ground beef, when the beef is almost done browning add onions, cabbage, salt, pepper and garlic.
  2. While you are cooking the beef, make your mashed potatoes. Add a little extra milk so the potatoes are not as thick as normal.
  3. Add potatoes and corn to the beef mixture and stir in while the stove top is on low. Remove from heat.
  4. Take your dough (I use a basic pizza dough recipe) and roll out into circles the size of a small tortilla.
  5. Add a scoop of your beef mixture.
  6. Roll up like a burrito and tuck the ends under.
  7. Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes or until the outside of the dough is golden.

Courses Main Dish



  1. Sounds like a great new recipe. How did it get the name bee rocks?

  2. Sarah Blomgren says:

    How many does this make?

  3. These look like perfect little vessels for leftovers. Yummy!

  4. Do you have leftover filling? I had some leftover.

  5. Do those need to be cooked before freezing or can they be frozen before they are cooked?

  6. I believe these can be cooked first, kinda like krepla, a traditional Jewish food. Beef filling wrapped in dough, then either boiled or deep fried and delicious. This with pots and corn etc. will be more healthful, if that is correct word. But I would cook first, however one chooses, then freeze, and reheat. I am going to make these for dh lunch. I am so excited to have found your blog, HH. I just told my husband, it is the smartest blog I have ever subscribed. Thank you for sharing your wisdom. Blessings to you and your family.

  7. The German version that they make in my area are called pirosche(pee ro ski) but we use meat and sauerkraut. I like the sound of your recipe though! The mashed potatoes I think would really add to it! I have frozen with and without baking first. I like the baking first, makes them like fast food! Take out of freezer put in microwave.

  8. Going to have to add these to next weeks list. They seem easy to make and you can substitute so many ingredients they would never be boring. I have been looking for some type of meat pie for a while now.

  9. I was pleased to see your recipe for these. They are indeed a German/Russian food. My parents were born in Russia (family had emigrated to Russia long time before). My mom always made these as a staple when I was growing up. I make them myself now. But we never used corn or mashed potatoes in them. And we added more cabbage. Used a bread dough originally but then mom discovered Hot bread mix and finally Rhodes bread which made it easier. She usually baked half and fried half. I preferred the fried as a lot of people did. But both are good. I am eager to try yours with the corn and potatoes in them. Thank you
