St. Patrick's Day bierocks
Being Mexican, Irish food doesn't sound very appetizing to me, other than cabbage because I think that's an international food for the thrifty. So today for St. Patrick's day I decided to make bierocks. I remember eating those back when I lived in western Kansas. Many of the of the original settlers are German and some of their food and customs still exist today. I think the bierock was brought over by Volga Germans. The're stuffed with cooked ground beef, cabbage, onion, garlic, salt and pepper. I learned how to make them when I worked at a restaurant while I was in high school. They're eaten with ketchup! I'm sure they're super tasty with beer, but I'm pregnant right now and cannot have any.
