I grew up in Fresno, Ca, & moved to Orange County Ca., in 1978, these were very popular there, but no-one seems to have ever heard of them here. I do think you will like them......The unused portions can be frozen for later use!
1Thaw the frozen bread, & once thawed I slice to try & get at least 7 good size slices
2Cook (on medium heat) crumbled ground beef together with cabbage, onion, garlic & spices(this requires a large stock pot)& I layer them so it will be evenly divided until meat, cabbage & onion are fully cooked. The pepper is what brings out the great flavor. Once cooked, drain out the liquid,& let cool.
3Roll out each bread slice on a lightly floured board to approx. 7 inch round. Place about 3-4 heaping tablespoons (or more if you like), cooled mixture into each round sealing each one then placing sealed side down on a very lightly greased baking pan with sides (to catch any excess liquid). Let them rise for about 10-15 minutes before baking. If you like you can brush tops with butter. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 20-30 minutes or until lightly browned. I serve these with potato salad....yummy!
