    It's amazing how you're speaking perfect American English but the second you throw in there any Polish word it's clear from the pronounciation that's your first language. Also, pierogi forever

    From my childhood I remember "pierogi party", when several grandmas got together, always on Fridays, and made pierogi for their families for dinner. There was a division of labor, and sharing gossip, and coffee and tea - and in couple of hours they could make hundreds of pierogi. The speed they were putting them together with was amazing. Direct result of years, no - decades of pierogi making. Some ladies could make the edges of pierogi looking very ornamental, and the speed was the same - astonishing. I miss that camaraderie of women. I was just a kid, so I mainly was watching, and from time to time they let me "practice", and I usually got the dough, the "farsz", and a lot of flour all over myself. My year round favorite were "pierogi ruskie", and in the summertime - pierogi with cherries. Those were served with sweet cream and butter.

      Something tells me that if you can make gyoza you will find making pierogi much easier than many others will. Try filling half with caramelised cabbage, finely chopped mushrooms and bacon then pour some nutty butter on top and maybe even a little dob of sour cream. When Japan lifts travel restrictions, go to Poland-- the Yen has a great exchange rate! I go to Japan every year and Poland is beautiful too so I hope you'll get to go next year. Have fun! :)

    Well, let's say this is a variant of pierogi ruskie. Btw. in Poland, we usually cook pierogi in boiling water and it's a finished dish for a day. To reheat them in the following days, we use the frying method and serve them with fat and skwarki (small pork rinds)/onion used in the same frying process. If you like pierogi, I also recommend these with sauerkraut and mushroom (traditional)/barley and mushroom (local in my area and probably somewhere else in PL) both served in the same way as ruskie, or sweet pierogi like these with blueberries or sweet cheese (google it, it's worthy!). Imo, meat pierogi are overrated.

    • @rockshot100
      @rockshot100 8 місяців тому

      It is not rocket science, just takes patience, and time. Lots of clean up. You really cannot fail. Are the latkes the potato pancakes? He does the more Slovak dough, with no sourcream in it. I like his dough better. I would suggest making double or triple the amount, they freeze very well, if you don't eat those all. Don't forget the onions and butter. If you really don't know how to cook, put the perogies on a sheet and freeze, then put those into a bag, otherwise they will stick together. It would take me 1.5 hours to do this alone, but usually get at least one helper, it is tedious. I am probably your age and been making them all my life, it is still slow.

    I want to thank you!! I don't cook all the time, but when I get to, I usually enjoy it, and these look sooo good. I know my husband especially is going to love them, and I'm sure I will, too. I just wasn't sure if they're still as delicious if you don't fry them a bit. But anyways, I like the idea of frying 'em, then serving them with the butter & onions along side. Thanks, again!!!

    You are truly Polish as I am. You work your ass off, you know what you’re talking about you’re a great chef and you’re a hard worker as I said before. 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. Thanks for sharing God bless and keep sharing please

    Cooking has become the method with which I try to express parts of my heritage to my children. I grew up away from my parents and never had an opportunity to learn many things about Poland so videos like this are invaluable to me.

      Americans dont have to know the polish grammar. "Pierogies" sounds cool, and remember that they just could call It "Polish dumplings". And It sitll would be correct, cause that what It is.

    I am also Polish by birth and have always loved pierogi and is the one recipe I took with me after I moved out.When I make them at home, my favourite filling is mashed potato with fried onion and mushroom mixed in.

      @ThePolishChef They came out great! I'm in the states so other pierogi I've tried have been frozen or bought. Home made was so much better. We gifted the rest to our friends and family. Didn't realize how many thus recipe would make. Thank you again, Polish Chef I will not question you.

    Thanks for this recipe. I was looking at other recipes and they added sour cream to the dough which I tried and didn't like at all. Your recipe seems to be simple and authentic. I have used it numerous times and it's always great, just like how I used to buy them in Cleveland, Ohio which has a big Polish community. I moved away and pierogis were hard to find so I'm glad I can make them at home now.

    My maternal grandma, Nana, made all sorts of flavor filled pierogis! But she didn’t have all those nice accoutrements! They were the size of a half saucer plate! Years later, I realized this wasn’t the standard, but it also was very hit or miss to ever get any as fresh as hers again. So many commercially made pierogis are flavorless. I’m assuming they get stale from freezing and refrigeration.

    I am making pierogis this weekend for my family for Christmas. When I was a child my grandmother who immigrated to Canada from Ukraine taught my Mom and the recipe was passed down to me and my sisters. I will pass the recipe on to my daughter. I also like my pierogis fried in butter with onions and sour cream .

    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.

      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.
