Have You Ever Had Russian Pelmeni?

I just was e-mailed a recipe for this and it sounds wonderful, although time consuming.  It is a dumpling stuffed with seasoned ground beef.

I thought the same but I never had a Pierogi with meat in it.

@wismiss  Thanks for sharing! I never heard of Pelmeni. They look delicious. I could see them floating in gravy, butter or soup.

This looks similar to kreplach - a Jewish dumpling like dough usually filled with ground meat or potatoes. Can be fried or baked. My grandmother used to make them!

If you have a Trader Joe's nearby, save yourself the trouble and purchase this.  They are delicious!  I simmer in broth.  My father was Ukrainian and my mother made a dumpling SIMILAR to this but it was called varenki.
