Bierocks / Runzas

At Christmas we always make Meat Buns, but this year in addition I added Bierocks, or Runzas, another version of Fleisch Perishky. I used the dough recipe from Judy's meat buns and shaped the buns in a different way so I would know which buns were regular meat buns or which were Bierocks when I pulled them from the freezer. The filling is very simple made with beef, cabbage, cheese, onions and mustard that binds it all together. Filling: 2 lbs ground beef 1 large onion, minced salt and…

Mennonite Girls Can Cook: Spaetzle Ukrainian Recipes, Russian Recipes, Italian Recipes, German Recipes, Ukrainian Food, Amish Recipes, Cooking Recipes, Casseroles, Pennsylvania Dutch Recipes


This is one of my husband's favourites. I don't think it is really a Mennonite specialty although it is very similar to Kielke. In Germany it is served alongside pork and schnitzel. Spaetzle is wonderful served plain but is often served up smothered in mushroom gravy or fried with onions and bacon. For those of us who have to watch our weight, a smaller helping is advised but do try them. This is a Spaetzle maker. Prior to getting it as a gift from my Swiss neighbour, I placed a flat grater…

Portzelky (New Year Fritters)

By the sound of the name, I imagine that these New Years fritters were adopted from our Ukrainian roots. My own mother was not in the habit of making these, but the family I married into was, so I chose this recipe many years ago, submitted by a Mrs. J. H. Peters to the Mennonite Treasury of Recipes. The trick is to make sure that the oil is the right temperature, so it is good if you can use an electric pan or fryer where you can set it. This recipe makes 3 dozen. Ingredients: 1/2 cup milk…

Rollkuchen Meatpockets

I remember the years when I was a teenager, we lived close to the church and my parents would often invite company home for lunch. My mom usually had a pot of soup ready and quickly made Rollkuchen to go along with the soup. It was pretty much the same, Sunday after Sunday, but she never stressed and everyone loved the meal. This recipe yields about 24 meatpockets or regular Rollkuchen ... you may want to double it. Ingredients: 2 eggs ¾ c milk 2 tablespoons vinegar 2 tablespoons oil 2 cups…
