Have you ever eaten, or made, Perogis?

Post by Breezey Breezey on Sat Feb 04, 2012 9:33 am

I'm going to be trying this some time soon. lol

PEROGI
Dough:
15 3/4 oz. (3 1/2 cups) all-purpose flour; more for dusting
3 large eggs
2 tbs. sour cream
1 c. water; more as needed
Butter or vegetable oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
In a large bowl, combine the flour, eggs, sour cream, and 1/2 cup of water. Stir, beating the eggs as you mix. Gradually add the rest of the water, stirring until the mixture begins to come together. Turn the dough onto a well-floured surface. Knead gently with your fingertips, lifting the dough off the counter and dropping it down (the dropping technique is key for delicate and pliable dough), taking care not to overwork it. Knead until the ingredients are blended and the dough is smooth on the outside and slightly sticky when poked, 2 to 5 min. Gather in a ball, wrap in plastic, and let rest for at least 20 min. while you make the filling (see below). While you fill the pierogis, put 5 qt. water on to boil. Drop the perogis in batches into the boiling water, stirring occasionally. When they float to the top, cook for another 2 to 4 min.; bite into one to check that there's no chalky line. Drain in a colander or fish them out with a spider and put them in a bowl. Sauté as described below or simply a dollop of butter and salt and pepper; jostle the bowl to toss.
To sauté the perogis:
Warm 1 1/2 tbs. butter or 3 tbs. vegetable oil in a sauté pan over medium-high heat. Without crowding the pan, add the boiled, drained perogis and sauté until golden brown and puffy on both sides.
Potato Filling:
3 medium baking potatoes (about 1 1/2 lb.), peeled and cut in 1-inch slices
2 tbs. unsalted butter; more as needed
1 tbs. vegetable oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, finely minced
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
2 cups finely shredded white cabbage (about 1/4 very small cabbage)
2 tbs. freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
Put the potatoes in a pot with just enough cold salted water to cover them and boil until soft, 15 to 20 min. Meanwhile, melt the butter with the oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, and thyme. Cook until the onions are translucent, about 2 min. Add the cabbage and cook, stirring occasionally, until the cabbage starts to soften and brown at the edges, about 8 min.
If you want extra flavor, substitute a few tablespoons of schmaltz (chicken fat) for the butter. It may not sound too appealing, but once my mother asked the Polish lady who shared her recipe for perogi what was missing in her pierogi since they were not quite the same as those produced by the Polish lady herself. The woman was happy to relay the recipe "secret" that she used chicken fat to fry the onions. If you're concerned about using chicken fat, try adding a 1/4 teaspoon of Minor's chicken base to your butter instead (not as good but a fair substitution).

Lower the heat and continue cooking until the cabbage and onion are nicely browned and caramelized, about 20 min. Season with salt and pepper. You may need to add 1 tbs. or more of butter or oil, as the mixture will absorb quite a bit of fat. Set aside to cool. When the potatoes are tender, drain them in a colander and press lightly with a dry kitchen towel to dry them thoroughly. Return the potatoes to their hot pot and shake them dry. Remove the pot from the heat; add the cooled cabbage mixture, the cheese, and the parsley. Mash the ingredients until they're well blended and there are no more potato lumps; you may want to use a stiff whisk. Season again with salt and pepper. Set aside to cool while you roll out the pierogi dough.

Yep to both. My dad was Polish. As children, we used to help mom make them from scratch, some stuffed with cottage cheese and onions, some with potato filling, and some with sauerkraut. Now I usually have to settle for store bought, unless some church event is having a sale.
Hint: look for the Ukrainian/Orthodox church in your area)

Helpful information
I can find dried cilantro in the spice section at our grocery store.
The Empanadas are great! smile2

Are Perogis the same as Kolaches? There is a small Czech community not far from here. The bakery there makes fantastic Kolaches - small, flat, bread rolls filled with different fruit, etc. Some have fruit, some have meat. My favorites: cherry and apricot. YUM!

Pierogies aren't sweet, they are dough folded over around fillings like potato and onion, cottage cheese, or sauerkraut.
Oh, and by the way, in Polish, pierogi is both singular and plural, sort of like ravioli.



From Wikipedia:

"Pierogi (Polish pronunciation: [pjɛˈrɔɡʲi]; also spelled perogi, pierogy, perogy, pierógi, pyrohy, or pyrogy) are dumplings of unleavened dough – first boiled, then they are baked or fried usually in butter with onions – traditionally stuffed with potato filling, sauerkraut, ground meat, cheese, or fruit. Of central and eastern European provenance, they are usually semicircular, but are rectangular or triangular in some cuisines.

The Polish word pierogi is plural;[1] the singular form pieróg is rarely used, as a typical serving consists of several pierogi."



Well blow me down! Apparently some are stuffed with fruit
(I had never heard of this), so I guess some ARE on the sweet side.

Are you telling me to stuff it? Shocked

But seriously, I suppose you can stuff them with just about anything, but I don't believe anybody stuffed pierogi with fruit traditionally.

They are not a sweet. They are usually used as a potato substitute.
