Salt and pepper.

1 egg.

Saute the meat.

Add all the ingredients to a bowl and mix thoroughly.

Add salt and pepper to taste.

Making the Dough

The dough is simple. 2 1/2 to 3 cups of flour, 1 tsp salt, 1 egg, about 1/2 cup of water.

Put in a bowl and mix to a smooth dough. It will be rather moist. Let it rest for a half hour or so.

Cut off pieces and roll them on a well floured board to about 1/16 inch thick.

Cut out circles with anything handy that is the diameter that you want. A can, a mug, biscuit cutter.

Filling the pierogi

Put the filling in the center of the circle. Wet the edges around the filling with water.

Fold the dough to cover the filling and seal with your fingers or a fork. Look at the picture top left to see what they should look like. (Caution - be sure that no filling gets in the seal and make sure that there is a good seal so that when you boil them the filling does not come out.

Boiling The Pierogi

Add a tablespoon of salt to a large pot of water. Heat to boiling and add a couple dumplings at a time.

Boil them for about 10 minutes. Remove them, rinse them under cold water and put on a plate or tray for the next step - Preparing Pierogi For The Table.
