    Those look wonderful!! My fiancée just passed in December. He was polish. He was supposed to teach me how to make these. We didn’t get around to it. I almost cried watching but I’m going to make these in his memory. Thank you so much. I’m a new subscriber today. I’ll be watching your videos. Thanks again ❤️

      Hi Leigh, I'm sorry to read of that. But you got me thinking: could you go to Poland as a sort of pilgrimage? Or would it be too sad? I'd like to imagine you in an airbnb having an adventure and perfecting pierogi in your Polish kitchen on holiday. I hope you're happy and well. :)

    For all non-polish people. Pierogi is already plural. There is no need to give them -es at the end. There is one pieróg (or pierożek) and two pierogi.

    "Loved by all, made by few!" Chef, your comments throughout the video made me laugh. I'll never question the Polish chef. I loved watching the techniques of your cooking especially when the "inspector" arrived to check your work. HA! Susan's instruction's on how to seal the pierogi after filling them was very helpful. If possible, could you please tell us how to purchase the stolnica and the absolutely beautiful serving dish that you were using. Thank you so much.

    I followed the link and went to Susan’s cooking school. There I found the pierogi making kit and the board that the Polish Chef used in the video. It all arrived yesterday and is perfect for the task. Well thought through and packaged exceptionally well. The only item our Polish Chef forgot to include was a Beer!! I can’t wait to take my daughters back to our Polish roots with this kit during our quarantine. Thanks again Polish Chef and Susan’s Cooking School! I had to come back and edit because my wife just reminded me that the chef did reduce my shipping cost by combining items which saved me enough money to buy a twelve pack of beer! Well done Chef!

    Thank you for showing me the traditional way! I am wanting to learn so I can make myself lunch for work and have a little of everything. From traditional to dessert.

Might head down to my local liquor store and see if they can order some Tyskie to celebrate once I've learned and mastered it. 😂 Na Zdrowie! (Yes, I had to Google the spelling.)

      When ever you tackle something so time consuming to make, cleaning as you go is very important.
      I make 1000 Italian meatballs at a time, baked, chamber vacuum sealed and frozen. It's an all day event. Perogies, cabbage rolls, spring rolls, all the same deal. All day event.
      Cleaning as you go, multiple dishwasher loads, saves you in the end.

    I grew up eating these, my mother would make a huge batch, and we would eat them 3 meals a day until they were gone. Fried up in a cast iron skillet with onions, sometimes we would have gravy insteasd of sour cream. YUM!
    my next quarantine project is to make them.

    • Merienne Lynch

      Once you taste a pirogi the way it should be made you always want them. My Mom's dough was melt in your mouth. Some liked them fried but I enjoyed them with melted butter and onions just translucent poured on them. I make the filling now and use lasagna noodles and serve them in squares, or mix the filling with noodles or macaroni. Cassarole dish wonder. You can take that mixture of potatoes (and they have to be mashed so as they are lumpy. For some reason they taste better than just mashed potato. Regular cottage cheese works. No recipe just know to mix it all together and then add the pasta.

    You remind me of my polish grandpa who I only knew as a kid, before he passed. But he loved to cook, and was an army chef for many years. He got to work serving VIPs and high ranking officers, after a chance encounter with General Eisenhower when he was touring the lines and sampled his cooking, as the story goes.
    I remember every vacation spent with my grandparents, was always him in the kitchen cooking, and me sitting at the table helping, while he told me war stories, and stories about him hunting in combat zones to feed the troops.

You’re very direct and blunt but yet polite and strict. If I ever had a chance to work with you in a restaurant as I am a trained chef for 30 years plus, I would love to do it in a heartbeat. I am from Wisconsin in the US and I would move wherever you are just to work with you You remind me of my grandparents who are very strong and strict in the kitchen as I was a child.

    I might have to give your version a try. I feel like every Polish family has their own specific recipe, it's so interesting to see the variations. It's also hard to make enough pierogies to put away for later, they tend to disappear immediately after leaving the pan.

    • Warrior Maiden
      Warrior Maiden 3 роки тому

      @Veneda Jane Less than two weeks. I bag them in sets of 3-6, so you can just pull a bag out and toss it in the microwave for a few minutes. They make great breakfasts on the go, but someone (cough *husband* cough) likes to snag more than one bag. Give my son a few years to reach the freezer and learn how to use the microwave, and he'll probably do the same thing. XD

      Lol, it's like me and making American Scones. They get maybe 30 seconds to cool before they get snatched off the plate. I wind up having to make a triple batch to have any to freeze. And a single batch makes 30-ish 4 inch square scones. XD

My Mother-in-Law, whose parents were Italian immigrants, used to make Pierogi from time to time to keep her husband's culture alive in their house. My wife and I buy it at the market but we've never known how to make it ourselves. Now, I'm going to give it a try!

    There was a delivery pirogi place I would order from with various "americanised" versions like mac and cheese, cream of spinich, sour cream and jalapeno in addition to the traditional flavors. Everything was served with fried onions and it was all fried up in bacon grease with bacon bits. They also would do grilled kielbasa sandwiches and bigos.... The place closed down a few years back and I miss it. I dream about it sometimes.

    My Grandmother used to use the entire kitchen table to make a batch of pierogi's. I was 5 or 6 years old. She would sit me down with a small bowl of filling while I watched her make the dough. She made a hundred at a time then got on a bus to deliver them to her church friends downtown. Today when I have a pierogi I always think of her.

    I see a lot of cooking videos, but this was genuinely entertaining. I'm inspired to make this during quarantine (I'm just missing the cheese). And I think the musical interludes are hysterical.

    We made these last night and they turned out really well: the dough had a nice elasticity, and your technique of stretching the dough over the large dollop of filling gave them excellent texture. Thanks.

    Just made a big batch of these with caramelized onions, absolutely delicious! I added more cheese than the recipe listed, but everything else was perfect. I grew up eating frozen store-bought pierogi, but those can't compare to the real thing. Definitely making these again! Dziękuję bardzo!!!

    Awe, thanks for showing me how to make Pierogi. Just met a Polish man living in the US, and wanted to show my welcoming. I think and know I can do this.

    My grandmother made perogies my whole life until she passed, I'm upset because I didn't pay enough attention to making the dough which I think is more intimidating than difficult. She always made half potato/cheese and half sauerkraut (which I never see anyone make) and we cooked them the same way as the video except we put the onions in the same pan. And we ate them of course with dinner (always with Kapusta) but anytime was proper... It's my goal to rediscover how to make these homemade!! Thanks for sharing I will check out the rest of your videos to see how much of my childhood I can remember!

    I tried to make pierogi few days ago but they've mostly opened in boiling water 🙂 The recipe and teamwork are great! Now, I've started all over again - no surrender🥟Greetings from Serbia

      I dip my finger in water and then wet the edges of the pierogi before giving them a tight double crimp. I hope your second attempt was more successful.

    Finally someone who makes pierogies the way Babci taught us! Our daughter's favourite is with kasha and cottage cheese filling! For Christmas Eve dinner we make fillings from potatoe and cheese, mushrooms, sauerkraut ( our own homemade sauerkraut) and kasha. Sometimes we use prunes

    Great pierogi video... Thanks! When I was young my Mom used to make these often. Exactly the same... She also experimented with the fillings. Sometimes she would add sausage cut into small pieces with the potatoes and onions... Also different types of cheese. And sometimes a bit of sauerkraut... They are all awesome with sour cream! A bowl of melted cheese sauce too!

    You remind me of my family from Polska. I'm first generation in America and I love your personality and your little differences from my families recipes. You should consider making more current videos; I'm sure many would enjoy them, as well as me!

    I grew up eating peroghi. My granny was from Ukraine. These look just like hers. She put cottage cheese in them. We used to eat them freshly boiled and the next day we woul fry the leftovers in butter......for breakfast.

      Just remember that you don't use regular cottage cheese in them. You have to use dry cottage cheese sometimes called Farmer's cheese. Regular grocery store cottage cheese has milk in it and you're 'rogi's will be watery mess. It can be hard to find. The dairy just needs to pack some containers with cottage cheese before they add the milk to it. You use 1 container of dry cottage cheese, mix in 1 beaten egg, 1 tsp. of salt and you've got a fantastic filling.

    i have always been scared to do pierogi, because of the stories about how my great grandmother made the best homemade ones. she never shared her recipes with anyone you either figured them out by watching her or you don't have it. no one has any family recipes. But several years ago before my dad and great aunt passed away they begged me to make Haluski. And because I love them I did. I made it the only way that made sense to me, I guess it was the same way my great grandmother also did it too. My great aunt asked my how I got Babcais recipe. I said "Aunt Hush I didn't I just made it the only way it made sense to me", and she told me its hers and I feel like a kid again. Even my dad said it was hers and he felt like a kid again. I just said I steamed it.

    Love pierogi's and I also like them in the pan. I also put some peppers with the onions and some sliced up Kielbasa. I'll have to try a little sour cream on the side next time!
