Pierogi are semicircular dumplings made of unleavened dough, stuffed with a variety of fillings.
I've cooked pierogi a couple of times but have never attempted making them from scratch, because honestly, it is a lot of work, and I usually only go for quick and easy recipes.
I’ve had a box of pierogi sitting in my freezer for a couple of months now and I finally decided to make a meal of it yesterday.
1 box (around 25-30) of frozen Pierogi (I like low fat cheddar and potato.)
2 Tbsp butter
3-4 cloves garlic, crushed1 onion, finely chopped
½ red bell pepper, diced
½ tsp red chilli flakes
A pinch of savory
Salt to taste
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the frozen pierogi and cook for 3-5 minutes. Drain.
Melt the butter in a skillet. Add the garlic, chopped onions, savory, red chilli flakes and sauté till onions are translucent.
Add the diced red bell pepper and cook till tender.
Add the cooked pierogi and mix well into the skillet mixture.
Serve pierogi warm.
