Nebraska's Stuffed Beef Sandwiches Recipe

Publisher Photo
When I moved to Nebraska, I discovered many ethnic foods that I had never heard of before. A friend introduced me to this German-Russian beef sandwich, and it quickly became a family favorite. —Dolly Croghan, Mead, Nebraska

Nutritional Facts

1 serving equals 433 calories, 16 g fat (5 g saturated fat), 84 mg cholesterol, 524 mg sodium, 48 g carbohydrate, 4 g fiber, 23 g protein.

Directions

  1. Place 1-3/4 cups flour, sugar, yeast and salt in a large bowl. Heat the milk, water and shortening to 120°-130°. Pour over flour mixture; add the eggs. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until blended. Beat 3 additional minutes on high. Stir in the remaining flour; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes.
  2. Place dough in a greased bowl; cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook beef and onions over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add the cabbage, seasoned salt, garlic powder and pepper; cook until cabbage is wilted.
  4. Punch dough down; divide into 12 portions and cover with plastic wrap. Working with one piece at a time, roll into a 6-in. square. Place 3/4 cup meat mixture in the center of each square. Fold dough over filling, forming a rectangle. Pinch edges tightly to seal and place on greased baking sheets.
  5. Bake at 350° for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve hot. Yield: 12 servings.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 12, 2013

"I have not used THIS recipe but make these all the time. This IS a Runza, cjt420, and the Runza restaurant sandwiches are just mediocre, anyway."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 12, 2013

"Nothing is quite as good as a Runza, but this comes pretty darn close. I grew up in Nebraska and still have to get my "fix" whenever I am there."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 31, 2012

"I would definitely rate this 5 Star (but no stars came up to click on). I was born and raised in Nebraska and it's my favorite food/fast food restaurant of all time. I have moved away and tried without success to get the recipe just right on my own. Thankfully, I found this recipe in the Country Woman magazine, and lo and behold it was SPOT ON! It is exactly like the Runzas I know and love, and desperately miss, since moving out of the state. Absolutely perfect recipe."

"These were great and remind me of my college years at UNL!"
