What have I been doing while staying at home during this Corona Virus disaster? Baking and Cooking! So far I've baked a big batch of Sprouted Wheat Bread, I've made Corned Beef for St. Patrick's Day and an Avocado Key Lime Pie for dessert (twice)! Since we had corned beef left over, and because I was baking bread, my mind started working and I thought about Bier Rocks. If you haven't ever heard of them, they are a free form beef hand pie basically. They usually have beef, cabbage and onions in them. The dough is a bread dough. I got to thinking that a Reuben style Bier Rock would be really good, sans the rye bread, but with sprouted wheat bread instead! So, I tried it and they are delicious! Here is how I did it.
When I made my sprouted wheat bread dough, I saved one loaf's worth of dough and wrapped it in waxed paper and plastic wrap in the fridge until the next day. Then, I gathered my ingredients:
OOPS. I forgot to show you the fillings. I placed a slice of cheese, the corned beef and then some potato bits and a cabbage slice in the center of the square. Next, wrap the dough all around the filling, pinching it to prevent leaking. Place on a well greased cookie sheet to rise for about 1/2 an hour.
As you can tell, Bier Rocks are very free form. But that is okay. They are easy to hold and eat without a mess, which is one of their beautiful qualities. They transport well and taste delicious.
This recipe is a great way to use up your St. Patrick's Day leftovers!
If you are like me and don't have little ones at home to care for and home school, how are you filling your time of social distancing? I have many home projects to get to, so this time alone can be put to good use.
Stay healthy everyone! Wash your hands and don't let these trying times get you down! Stay busy, check on your loved ones and keep praying!
