Runzas

I had a buddy of mine from Nebraska introduce me to these. Anyone else have any variations on them. They are awesome when you have a beer or three.

RUNZAS


4 1/2 to 5 c. flour
1 c. sugar
1 tsp. salt
2 pkgs. active dry yeast
3/4 c. milk
1/2 c. water
1/2 c. shortening
2 eggs, at room temperature

FOR DOUGH: Measure 1 3/4 cups of flour into a large mixing bowl. Stir in sugar, salt and yeast. Heat milk, water and shortening until warm, 120 to 130 degrees. Pour into flour mixture. Add eggs, beat with an electric mixer at low speed for 1/2 minute at high speed for 3 minutes more. Stir in the rest of flour. Knead about 5 minutes. Cover with plastic wrap and towel. Let rest 20 minutes.

RUNZA FILLING:

1/2 lb. ground beef
1 onion, chopped
2 c. chopped cabbage
2 tbsp. butter
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper

Roll dough thin, cut into 6 or 7 inch squares. Makes about 6. Brown beef, onion and wilted cabbage mixture and place 3 tablespoons of mixture in center of each square. Bring corners of each square to center. Pinch edges together and seal. Place runzas seam side down on baking sheet. Let raise in warm place, 40 to 60 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

Runzas freeze well and may be reheated in microwave. The recipe calls for baking seam side down but I prefer seam side up because you loose less filling.

I am suprised Runza hut hasn't expanded beyond Nebraska. A ton of people love them. Where did you get the recipe? Guess I never really looked for a recipe. I hit the Runza drive through regularly. Like you said, they are great for absorbing beer.

Damn I saw this to late, she is already almost back to Ok

I might try to make a batch or 2 of them, probably with a little variation on the recipe that josh posted.
