For Best Quality, quicker prep time and a classic taste, quicker prep time and a classic taste, heat 3-4 qtrs. of water in a pot and bring to a slow boil. Add a tsp. of salt for taste. Place frozen pierogi in boiling water and cook uncovered for 2 to 3 minutes or until they rise to the top. Stir occasionally, and drain thoroughly once done. Do not overcook.
IMPORTANT: Overcooking will decrease the quality of the dough.
Option: Once the pierogi have cooked, and have been thoroughly drained, you can fry them on a pan for a crispy taste. Place pierogi on a skillet with a bit of oil and fry on low heat until evenly brown on both side.
For Best Quality and a crunchy taste, take pierogi out of the freezer and allow them to thaw for about 3-4 hours (As a faster option you may also defrost in the microwave, but this is a less healthy option). Once the pierogi have thawed, place them evenly in a skillet with a bit of oil and 3 to 4 tbsp. of water on low heat and turn occasionally to brown evenly on both sides.
IMPORTANT: Make sure to keep on low heat as you fry the pierogi as high heat toughens the dough.
