TheAimlessCook's picture
Buddocks are a home style meat bun made with a basic bread dough, stuffed with ground beef or pork, cabbage and onions. You can actually put whatever you got in them and experiment. I got this recipe from Jo's family recipe book. If you know where the name 'buddocks' came from, please let me know in the comments. Enjoy!
For the buns
  Warm water 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Sugar 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Yeast 1 Tablespoon (Quick rise yeast used)
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Eggs 2 , beaten
  Melted butter 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  All purpose flour 7 Cup (112 tbs)
For the cabbage roll filling
  Sour cabbage 300 Gram
  Ground beef 1 Pound (or ½ lb each of ground beef and pork, combined)
  Onion 1 Large, diced
  Salt and pepper To Taste
  Tomato 1 Large, diced
  Salt To Taste

1. Take 300 grams of sour cabbage and rinse the leaves under cold water to get rid of the excess brine. After that shred the cabbage and set aside.
2. In a large mixing bowl add 2 cups of water, half a cup of sugar and stir briefly.
3. Then add 1 tablespoon of quick rise yeast. Stir it in and let it stand for about 15 minutes while the yeast activates.
4. When the yeast is ready add salt, 2 beaten eggs, melted butter and flour. Combine until you get a ball of dough and let it stand for one hour to rise.
5. Preheat the oven to 350 F.

6. In a large skillet or wok brown 1 pound of ground beef till it starts to change color. Then add 1 large diced onion. Stir and cook for a couple of minutes more.
7. Season with salt and pepper and add the shredded cabbage and a large diced tomato. Mix well to combine. Cover and cook under medium heat to wilt down the cabbage and break down the tomatoes.
8. When the filling is done, give it a taste and season again to taste. Remove from heat, set aside and let cool.
9. At this point the dough would be twice its size. Cut into two and roll into a sheet in the thickness of a chopstick. Cut them into palm size squares and assemble.
10. Start by putting a little of the filling into the middle of each square. Fold the corners into the center and pinch the edges to seal. Fold in the remaining corners and twist.
11. Take a baking sheet and put the buns on it, laid out in straight lines and bake at 350 F for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.
12. Once they are done, set aside to cool as the filling will be molten hot.

13. Serve when cooled.

Fillings of your choice can be used to stuff the bun.
