In the latest issue of Food Network magazine, there is an article about our famous Runza Sandwich. I truly had to laugh when I read it. I was also a little annoyed. It is a very simple sandwich with very few ingredients. But Food Network has “elevated” it to a sandwich with many ingredients (8) to be exact; and have called it Nebraskan Runzas. Why in the world would you choose to “elevate” it by using all these other ingredients? Garlic, Thyme, Rosemary and Spinach are not necessary. If you want to use all those ingredients; call it "Spinach Bierocks", PLEASE don’t call it Nebraskan Runzas. It is not a Runza by any standard. We have loved this sandwich for years and it is perfection to all who have eaten it. The Russian/German Immigrants knew what they were doing when they made this sandwich. You cannot improve it by adding all those other ingredients to it. When you have perfection, you leave it alone! More is not always better.
Real Runza Ingredients: bread dough, ground beef, onion, salt and pepper, cabbage.

Till next time......
