Culinary legend has it bierocks were created somewhere in Eastern Europe and became popular in the United States in the 1880s when German-Russian Mennonite immigrants brought the recipe to Kansas. The savory, yeast-dough pocket sandwich was a hearty meal wives could easily carry out to their husbands working the fields.
If you do not want to make your own dough, or you do not have the time, you can buy regular or sweet biscuit dough, roll it out, and fill with the mixture.
An alternative is to use frozen yeast dough. Allow it to rise per the package directions then roll the dough out and fill.

If you have leftovers, you can freeze bierocks, and reheat for lunch or dinner later in the week. To reheat, no need to thaw. Cover the pie with a damp paper towel and microwave for about one minute, depending on your microwave. Heat in incremental times until it reaches a temperature you like.
