A staple summer treat in most of Eastern Europe and most definitely in Poland. Pierogi (Pierogi z Truskawkami) filled with fresh seasonal fruit. These pierogi are filled with delicious strawberry slices. Enjoy them with sour cream that has been sweetened with a little sugar. The result is divine!
Weight: 10 pierogi per package. approx 1lb.
For Best Quality, 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 melted butter and fry on low heat until evenly brown on both sides. nbsp;
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 melted butter 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.
Strawberry Pierogi Serving Tips:
- Classic: Melt a quarter cup of butter in a skillet over low heat. Drizzle over the pierogi and toss them to ensure butter is evenly distributed. Enjoy with a side of sweetened sour cream: mix 2 teaspoons of sugar with a quarter cup of sour cream and toss a dab of the sweet cream over you plate of pierogi. Sprinkle with a bit of chopped mint for added freshness.
- Extra Strawberry: Top with a strawberry cream sauce! In a blender combine ½ cup of sour cream, 1 tbsp. of sugar, 1 tsp. of vanilla sugar (LINK) and ½ cup of fresh strawberries. Blend until you achieve a smooth cream sauce. Dab over your plate of pierogi or dip each dumpling as you enjoy.
