Growing up in a Russian household there was always something interesting on the table, from pickled herring to raw cured pork belly that you eat with uncooked garlic cloves and dark rye bread. Although memorable and frightening at times, the meal we always longed for as kids was Pelmeni. Pelmenis are of Eastern European descent and you'll find different variations of these dumplings throughout Russian and Ukrainian cooking.
Most often you'll find these dumplings in a honeycomb shape or tortellini style fold where you bring the two ends of the dough together. Our shape resembled a miniature style pierogi, with the main focus for us being in the dough and filling.
We make our dough and filling from scratch and are proud of it, shape the dumplings, we then IQF freeze them so all you gotta do is cook them up in about 5 MINUTES! It's truely the best meal to have in your freezer, and they are EXTREMELY filling.
