While back in Kansas last month, my grandmother made a delicious and old family recipe. These fluffy, sweet buns are stuffed full of ground beef and cabbage and are oh so good. Parker grew up eating what his Grammie calls “Bierocks.” My Grandma Weber calls them “runza.” Whatever your name of choice, these tasty buns are a long-established classic of the Mid-West. Our Volga German ancestors brought this tradition with them as the immigrated to the US many years ago. On a cold Sunday afternoon, we decided to try our hand at this classic. We also made a big batch of glühwein [a ubiquitous cold weather drink, essentially mulled/spiced wine]. Our feast paired nicely with a Harry Potter movie marathon and a new board game to play. Prost und frohe Weihnachten!
