Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Grease a medium bowl and baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Set them aside.

  • Prepare dough: Stir together warm water and yeast in a large bowl. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.

  • Add 1/2 of the flour, sugar, margarine, egg, and salt to yeast mixture. Beat until smooth; add remaining flour until dough pulls together. Place into the prepared medium bowl; cover with foil. Refrigerate for 2 hours to overnight, or let rise at room temperature for 1 hour.

  • While dough rises, make filling: Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir ground beef in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in cabbage, onion, salt, and pepper; cook, stirring occasionally, over medium-low heat until cabbage is tender, about 30 minutes. Remove the skillet from heat and let cool until lukewarm.

  • Punch down dough and divide into 20 equal pieces. Flatten and spread each piece of dough out on an unfloured surface; fill with about 2 tablespoons filling. Fold dough over and seal edges. Place onto the prepared baking sheet and let rise for 1 hour.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 25 minutes. Brush tops with melted butter and serve warm.
