I really enjoyed these beef, cheese, and cabbage-filled buns.  I was surprised how mild the cabbage tasted.  I think they would freeze well.  They are great with ketchup and spicy mustard.  You could also cook the filling the day before assembling these, like I did. 

Runsas (makes 8)

Adapted from Cook's Country, April/May 2007 (p. 7)

3/4 cup warm water (110 degrees)
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup melted butter
2 TBSP sugar
1 large egg
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour, plus extra for rolling out dough
1 TBSP plus 1 tsp yeast
1 tsp salt

1 1/2 pounds ground beef
3 TBSP finely minced onion
3 cups chopped cabbage
salt and pepper
2 cups shredded Colby Jack cheese

1. Combine dry ingredients in large bowl.  Make well in center of dry ingredients, add wet ingredients, and mix until shaggy dough forms.  Turn dough out onto heavily floured work surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes.  Place in large, greased bowl.  Cover bowl with plastic wrap or dish towel and let rest in warm place until doubled in size (anywhere from 1 to 3 hours).

2.  Brown beef in large skillet.  Add onion and cabbage and cook until cabbage is slightly wilted, about 5 minutes.  Season with salt and pepper. 

3. Adjust oven racks to the upper-middle and lower-middle positions and heat oven to 350 degrees.  Line two baking sheets with aluminum foil.  Divide dough into 8 equal pieces.  Working on lightly floured work surface, roll each piece of dough into 7-inch circle.  Place one dough round in deep cereal bowl and top with 1/4 cup cheese.  Spoon 3/4 cup filling over cheese and pinch edges of dough together to form bun.  Transfer bun, seam side down, to prepared baking sheet.  Repeat with remaining dough, cheese, and filling, placing 4 buns on each baking sheet.  Cover buns with plastic wrap and let rise until puffed, about 20 minutes.

4.  Bake buns until golden brown, about 20 minutes, switching and rotating positions of baking sheets halfway through baking time.  Brush buns with melted butter and serve.

I have a family member who has made these for years, but I have never seen them anywhere else- or found a recipe! Thanks. This recipe reminds me of my childhood, when she would make them for us. So glad you shared the Runsas recipe and linked up to TMTT. :-)

We would have these when I was growing up. So yummy! We called them "Bierocks".
