Beef Stuffed Bread Recipe

Cabbage Bread, Peppery Beef and Onion Stuffed,

"Cabbage Bread"

Cabbage bread is an irresistible stuffed bread recipe with a peppery beef and cabbage center.

Equally good warm or room temperature, it is an excellent picnic food idea, travel food or snack food as well as side dish. It's a family favorite around my house.

Use our Garlic Knots bread dough recipe, your own homemade bread dough, store-bought bread dough, or puff pastry.

Cabbage Bread

1 small green cabbage, shredded
2 tablespoons butter
1-1/4 pounds ground beef
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 - 2 teaspoons black pepper
Yeast bread dough

1. In a large pot, melt the butter and add the shredded cabbage. Stir to coat well. Cover and steam over medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

2. In the meantime, brown the ground beef and onion in a skillet. Add the salt and pepper and continue cooking for 1-2 minutes. Add the ground beef mixture to the cabbage pot and mix. Transfer the mixture to a colander and let it drain and cool completely, an hour or so. Stir once in a while to hurry the cooling.

3. Roll out your bread dough very thinly. Cut it into rectangles about 5" X 8". Place a large spoonful of the cabbage mixture in the center of each rectangle. Draw up the edges and seal.

4. Place the 'packages" sealed side down on a greased cookie sheet. Let them rise 10-15 minutes (if you're using a yeast dough.) Bake at 425° until golden brown, about 15 minutes.

Serve warm or room temperature, plain or with deli mustard, if desired.


Substitute rolled out puff pastry sheets for the bread dough. Bake just until golden brown.
