Making Incredible Bierocks and Potato Salad

We’ve been making Incredible Bierocks and Creamy Potato Salad  recipes for years and years.  Does that give you an idea of how awesome they are? Well, it sure should because they are!  First, let me tell you about the Bierocks.

Incredible Bierocks

I’ve tasted bierocks made with a variety of meats and sausages.  This recipe is made with a cross-rib roast and in a crock-pot. It is cooked low and slow overnight.  The result is an incredibly tender and juicy meat filling. Mmmmm, so good.

Ingredients for these Incredible Bierocks

I feel what makes these Bierocks incredible is the flavorful cut of meat and simple ingredients.  I’ve mentioned the cross-rib roast and the other ingredients are a yellow onion, carrots, salt, Worcestershire sauce, pepper, garlic powder, garlic salt, cabbage, and frozen bread dough. We used Bridgeford frozen white bread dough in a three-pack. 

Let’s Get Started Making Incredible Bierocks

We start the meat the night before we plan to make our bierocks.  Making this whole process so, so easy. You’ll awaken to the most delicious aromas.  I’m getting ahead of myself, but seriously can you blame me?   


We’ll be using a crockpot set to a low setting.  Then season the meat with salt, pepper, garlic powder, garlic salt and place into the crock-pot.  Next, slice then quarter your onion, grate the carrots and add them over the meat in your crockpot.  Last but not least is the Worcestershire sauce. Close, seal the crockpot, and make sure its set to low.  Remove your frozen bread dough package from the freezer and place it into the refrigerator. That’s it, now get a good night’s sleep, zzzzz.

In The Morning

By morning your bread dough will have defrosted and the meat will be cooked, tender and the aroma will have your mouth watering, lol.  But, seriously it will!

Adding the Cabbage

The final part of the filling is adding the cabbage.  Rinse your head of cabbage, remove the core, slice it, then quarter chop and add it over the meat in your crock-pot.  Seal and set your crock-pot to high. Let the cooking process begin. Now go about having your morning cup of coffee or tea then recheck for doneness in an hour or two.  The amount of time will vary from one crock-pot to another.

Shredding the Incredible Bierock Filling

Your cabbage will be ready when it’s wilted and softened.  The meat should be tender enough to shred with two forks. As you shred the meat you’ll find you’re also, mixing the cabbage into the filling.  If not, go ahead and make sure the ingredients are thoroughly combined. Turn off your Crockpot, you’re ready to make your bierocks.

Preheat the oven to 375 Degrees

I preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  While it’s heating I prepare my work area.  For me that’s pretty simple. My work area starts with a large cutting board.  To that, I add the defrosted bread dough, knife, rolling pin, flour, small glass or bowl of water, mixing bowl with a colander, and a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet.  I set it up like an assembly line, of sorts.  

Bierock Filling

You don’t want too much juice in your filling, as it may leak out during the baking process.  I use a mixing bowl and small colander to help me drain off excessive amounts of juice. Place some of your meat in the colander to drain.  Be sure to retain all those juices.

The Dough

Begin by cutting one of the defrosted loaves of bread dough into 5 equal pieces.  Return the remaining dough to the refrigerator to limit its rising. The dough should be cool, soft and pliable.  Sprinkle flour over your chopping board and rolling pin.  Place one piece of dough onto your work surface and begin rolling it out until it’s approximately 6 inches.

Adding the Incredible Bierock Filling

Add a generous spoonful of meat filling to the center of your rolled out dough.  Next, dip your finger into the bowl of water and run it around the edge of your dough and begin sealing your dough over the filling.  Pinching and working it together to form a bierock. Place it onto your parchment paper-lined baking sheet and continue the process until your baking sheet is filled.  Be sure to allow space between each bierock.

Baking The Incredible Bierocks

We set our oven to preheat at the temperature recommended in the instructions for the bread dough, and that is 375 degrees.  Set your oven to the recommended temperature of your preferred frozen bread dough.  

Since your filling is thoroughly cooked you only need to bake your bread.  In our case, that’s 15-30 minutes. Once the bread is cooked and a nice golden brown, remove from the oven and allow to cool.  

Time to Enjoy Your Delicious Bierocks

We are never able to wait until dinner to eat and enjoy one of these bierocks.  After a few bites, you can drizzle some of the juice back into your bierock, if needed. Most of the time, they are perfectly juicy, as is. 


These bierocks are so delicious that you, your family and friends may eat them all.  However, if you have any left they can easily be frozen. We will use large zip-lock storage bags for this purpose.  Later, they can be defrosted and easily reheated in your microwave oven and enjoyed.

Which includes a large chopping board, knife to cut the bread dough into sections, rolling pin, mixing bowl and colander (to drain excessive juice from meat filling, and flour to keep the dough from sticking to your work surface, rolling pin and parchment paper lined cookie sheet. But, you arrange work area for what works best for you.

  • Start rolling out one section of the bread dough, I roll out mine to about a six inch round.
  • Place a spoonful of drained meat filling in the center of your rolled out section of the dough. Wet your finger and slightly dampen the edges of the rolled out dough. Begin sealing the dough over the filling. Pinching to seal the dough. Place formed bierock onto your parchment paper lined cookie sheet leaving space around each Bierock.
  • Place your cookie sheet into your preheated oven and cook for 15-30 minutes. Time will vary from one oven to another. The filling is cooked so you are only baking the bread. Once the bread is baked and golden brown, remove from oven to cool.
  • Continue making and baking your bierocks.

Incredible Creamy Potato Salad


Incredible Creamy Potato Salad

This recipe is a favorite and has been for generations.  We’ve enjoyed this Creamy Potato Salad for as long as I can remember.  My Noni (grandmother) developed this recipe with ingredients her children would enjoy and most importantly eat.  I can understand that! Our girl was always a bit selective with her food and our boy, well he was a great eater.   


I find the simplest ingredients usually make the most tasty dishes and this is no exception.  Ingredients include potatoes, hard-boiled eggs, sliced black olives, yellow onion, salt, pepper and mayonnaise.  That’s it, no special ingredients in this creamy potato salad.

Let’s Make This Creamy Potato Salad

Fill a large pot with water and bring to a rolling boil.  While your water heats, peel and cut your potatoes into quarters.  Slice ½ of a yellow onion and cut each in half. Once your water begins to boil add a bit of salt to the water, then add in your potatoes and onion.  

Continue boiling or cooking your potatoes until you can easily insert and remove your fork from the potatoes. Using a colander, drain water from the potatoes and allow to cool slightly.

Hard Boiled Eggs

In another saucepan hardboil 4 eggs.  Once cooked, allow to cool, peel, chop into chunks then set aside.

Smash or Mash

To give your potato salad it’s creaminess you’ll need to allow the potatoes to cool slightly and then using a fork or potato masher break up the potatoes. You’ll find it won’t take long for them to have a creamy texture similar to mashed potatoes.  

Puree The Onion

Normally, the onion you sliced and quartered will have soften during the cooking process and will ‘easily’  break up when mashing the potatoes. If they are not soft, you’ll need to use your blender and puree them. You’ll be able to determine if they have soften enough to mash just after draining the water from the potatoes.

Adding In The Other Ingredients

It’s time to add the sliced and diced hard-boiled eggs, sliced black olives, salt, pepper and mayonnaise.  Fold all ingredients together until well combined. But, no need to overwork this step.

I Have To Say

This is when I love, love, love to have a serving of Creamy Potato Salad.  I love nothing more than this warm potato salad. Well, maybe you have to grow up enjoying it this way.  But, I’m not the only one who enjoys it this way, there are others in our family who also, like it served warm. 

This is when you transfer your creamy potato salad to it’s serving bowl and chill.  

Final Thoughts on The Incredible Potato Salad

Please give this recipe a try.  It has simple ingredients and all the flavors blended together beautifully.  The flavor doesn’t overpower or fight those of the bierocks and is a perfect side dish for the bierocks and many, many other main dishes.  This Creamy Potato Salad works perfectly with our Bierocks!!  

We hope you enjoy and give this recipe a try.  Please, drop your comments below! We’d love to know your thoughts on this Incredible Bierock and Creamy Potato Salad recipes.
