Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.
1 Corinthians 10:31
I have decided to mix up my cooking routine and get in touch with my German heritage by experimenting with German recipes. It can be a dessert, side dish or main course. I am looking forward to the variety and fun it will add to my kitchen. I hope to find some tasty recipes to pass on to my children and keep our German roots alive!
My first attempt was a success. I will most certainly be adding this one to the recipe vault! Quick, easy and delicious.
1 lb ground hamburger
1 large onion, chopped
1/4 to 1/2 of a cabbage, chopped
garlic salt and pepper to taste (I used a lot of pepper)
In a large pot (with a lid) cook all of the filling ingredients on medium heat until meat is browned. Bring heat to low and cover to let onions and cabbage get tender).
1 cup hot water
1 tbsp yeast (or one package)
2 tsp sugar
2 1/2 cups flour (I used whole wheat)
2 tbsp oil (canola or olive)
1 tsp salt
combine 1 cup hot water with 1 tbsp (or 1 package) yeast and 2 tsp sugar. Let sit for about three minutes. Add 2 1/2 cups flour, 1 tsp salt and 2 tbsp oil. Mix well. Cover with a towel and let sit for 10 minutes.
Separate in 7 to 8 balls and squish flat. Fill dough with meat mixture and pinch edges. Place filled dough pouches on greased cookie tray. Bake at 400 for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
