Pelmeni

One of the best types of food for a cold late fall/early winter night is Russian food, a warm bowl of Borscht with some bread, or some beef stroganoff with some pasta, or one of my favorites, Pelmeni or Russian/Siberian dumpling.

You need:

  • 2 eggs
  • 180 g flour
  • 1/2 lb ground beef
  • 1/4 lb ground mutton
  • 1/4 lb ground pork
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp sour cream

How to make this:

  1. You can use a standard round wonton wrap for this, which are just flour and water, but I prefer an eggy-ier dough, so, mix 2 eggs and 180g of flour with a pinch of salt, knead, then press it with a pasta machine or a rolling pin, to about 2 mm or 1/16 inch, them cut them out to a 4 cm or 1.5 inch circle wit ha cookie cutter
  2. Finely chop the onion, then cook them in a medium high pan with some oil until they turn translucent. Then mix the cooked onion with the ground meat and salt
  3. Fold the wrap with the filling in them, like the following photos, you can make about 25 dumplings with this recipe:983ae15f-cbcd-4301-aafb-c3cdfd1990de
  4. Boil them in salted water for about 4 min, meanwhile, heat up a pan with some butter, drain the dumplings, then quickly pan fry them in the butter
  5. Serve it with some chopped cilantro and sour cream
