Beef and cabbage cheese bun
Also seen on Cookin' For the Seven Dwarfs
Ingredients3/4 cups water
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil ( I used coconut oil )
2 tablespoons sugar
1 egg ( large )
3 1/2 cups flour
2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
1 teaspoon salt
DirectionsFor the dough: Lightly grease a large bowl with butter, or coconut oil. Mix the water, condensed milk, sugar, oil, and egg in a large measuring cup. Mix the flour, salt and yeast in a standing mixer fitted with the dough hook. With the mixer on low, add the water mixture. After the dough comes together, increase the speed to medium and mix for 4-6 minutes. Turn the dough out onto a heavily floured work surface, shape into ball and place in greased bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and set in warm place until double in size, about 1 hour.
Assemble and bake: Preheat oven to 350. Coat two baking sheets with foil or cooking spray. Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces. Working on a lightly floured work surface, roll each piece of dough into 7 inch circles. Place one dough round in a deep cereal bowl and top with one slice of cheese. Spoon 3/4 cup filling over the cheese and pinch edges of the dough together to form a bun. Transfer the bun, seam-side down, to a prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining dough, cheese and filling, placing four buns on each baking sheet. Cover the buns and let rise for 20 minutes.
Bake the buns until golden brown, about 20 minutes. Brush the hot buns with the remaining melted butter and serve.
Filling3 tablespoons butter ( I used coconut oil )
1 1/2 pounds ground beef, 95% lean meat
1 onion ( large )
1/2 bell peppers ( red )
1/2 bell peppers ( yellow )
2 clove(s) garlic ( chopped finely )
1/2 head cabbage ( cored and chopped (about 3 cups) )
8 white american cheese ( slices )
For the filling: Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter (or coconut oil) in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions, bell peppers, and garlic and cook until softened. Add ground beef to onion mixture and cook until browned. Using a slotted spoon, transfer beef mixture to another bowl. Add cabbage to the skillet until just beginning to wilt, 2-4 minutes. Return beef mixture to the pan and season with salt and pepper.
