Bierocks (the correct spelling, by the way) are of German-Prussian, or Prussian-German (you say potato, I say spud) origin. I grew up in Russell, Kansas, which has a large G-P influence. More importantly, Russell had Simpson??s Bakery, makers of the largest and finest bierocks on the planet. As a teenager, I consumed more than my fair share of these 1-pound gut-busting delicacies. Why is all of this significant to this writing? The Berrock Shop caused the most vivid flashback of my life! Their bierocks, save for the size and price, were so close to Simpson??s bierocks, I was stunned! I??ve tried several bierocks from numerous bakeries, festivals and fairs, but they never really compared to those of my youth. The Berrock Shop filled this void in splendid fashion. Their other fares, salads and deserts are of equal quality, which explains the standing room only situation at lunchtime.

The only differences between my homemade bierocks and those from the Berrock Shop are size (I make mine like Simpson??s) and a key ingredient missing from the Berrock Shop filling. My family recipe is safely stored in a Mason jar, buried beneath a concrete slab behind the house at 9 N. Lincoln Street, Russell, KS. The backup copy is stored within the rapidly deteriorating grey matter contained within the gourd resting upon my shoulders.

Visit the Berrock shop, order the Ground Beef Berrock and be taken back to Simpson??s Bakery, circa 1962. You??ll Love It!

I had never had a berrock until I moved to Fresno. The berrocks here are very good. If you are on a low carb diet just eat the filling. I have gotten just the filling to take home.
