Karen’s Killer Fixin’s: Bierox

It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s!

Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers.

So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe. A cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes my eye and fancy…which today is BIEROX!!

Bierox is a German version of a hamburger.  My best friend shared this recipe with me because she knows I make my own homemade sauerkraut and love to find new recipes that uses it. I’m so glad I found this one to share because I haven’t made it since she first introduced me to them, and that just won’t do! Guess what I’m making sometime soon? 🙂

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!

[Serves LOTS]


Brown 1 ½ lb. ground beef.

Add 16 oz. sauerkraut, 1 pkg. onion soup mix, salt & cayenne pepper to taste.

Make your favorite soft dough/roll recipe with 1 pkg. yeast. Let rise until double or refrigerate up to 24 hours to rise.  Then, divide into 4 parts to work.  Roll each part to ¼-inch thickness and cut into 4” squares.  Place 2 heaping tablespoons filling on each square and pinch corners together to seal.  (Or cut dough into circles and fold to half circles.)  Let rise another 15-20 minutes.  Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes on greased sheet.

  1. I had to see what this was. The word wasn’t in my grandparents’s German vocabulary (they immigrated in the 1870’s & 1880’s). It sounds yummy! So good that I Tweeted.

    1. I guess this recipe isn’t everywhere in Germany. But FB pal found reference to it and shared the information with us. I just know it’s delicious. I make my own saurkraut and love having different ways to use it.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting, AND tweeting it, Mari! 🙂
