Denise Brawner's Story

My ex Mother In Law used to make these often & this was only one of her many dishes I could eat two or three times a day!! Thank you Susan for broadening my Horizon to the many different dishes from different cultures!! This isn't her exact recipe, but the flavor is about as close as I could get! :)

2 Loaves
your favorite dough bread, found in freezer section of the super market
onion, chopped
1/2 Head
shredded cabbage
14 oz
can tomato sauce
1 Tbl
tomato paste
1 Tbl
italian seasoning
1 tsp
1/2 tsp
ground pepper

Directions Step-By-Step

For dough:
Remove dough from package. Place in greased bowl or container about 6 hours prior to prep time to thaw.
For filling:

Brown beef and onions. Drain.

Add cabbage & seasonings to beef, saute until tender.

Add tomato sauce & tomato paste - simmer 10 minutes.
Divide dough into 5-8 small dough balls.

Take dough ball, one at a time, & roll out onto a lightly floured surface.

Place a generous 1/2 cup of mixture, (your own preference of how much/how little you want) down the center of the rolled out dough.

Fold over & pinch edges to seal, a fork works wonderfully, to press around sealed edges.

Place each pasty on nonstick cookie sheet, bake at 375F for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.
