Rye Beer Buns

From Cooking Books
Makes 24 Rolls or 18 Sandwiches

12 oz beer
1/3 c packed brown sugar
1/4 c molasses
2 T unsalted butter
4 1/2 tsp yeast
2 tsp salt
3 c a.p. flour
2 1/2 c rye flour
1 T fennel seeds (anise or caraway would work too)
1 T tangerine zest (I used orange)

Egg Wash
1 egg mixed with 1 T water

1.5 lb thinly sliced and chopped corned beef
2 c swiss cheese, shredded
1 c sauerkraut
1/2 c mayo
2 T vinegar
1 T sugar

Heat beer with sugar, molasses and butter to 110F.  Mix with yeast.  Wait until foamy.  Knead in remaining dough ingredients.  Cover and let rise 2 hours.

Divide into 18 pieces for sandwiches or 24 for rolls.  For sandwiches, combine filling ingredients.  Roll dough into think circles.  Place filling on top.  Pull sides together, pinching to seal.  Place on a baking sheet dusted with cornmeal.  Let rise 1 hour.  For rolls, form into balls on baking sheet and let rise 1 hour.  Brush with egg wash.  Bake 20 to 25 minutes at 375F.
