    There is a Russian restaurant on 161 just east of Cleveland Ave. It’s called Hawa Russia (НАША РОССИЯ) and I hear they have good pierogies (called vareniki in Russian).

    I believe your Russian spelling is the correct name and that makes it roughly pronouced Hasha Russia, but it has been over 20 years since I studied the Russian language :)

    Close, but no cigar. In Cyrillic a written “H” is pronounced as an “N,” so it would be “Nasha Russia,” which pretty much means “Our Russia”.

    Slash, I would kill for a homemade peirogi cart. Someone PLEASE do it! *cough* ROLAND.

    I’ve never had peirogi but, after this thread, was forced to Google some recipes. Do any of you aficionados think either of these recipes would be a good try?

    I think either of those recipes would be fine. I mean, the dough is real simple, but the filling, and the end cooking method, is what makes them great. Once boiled, they can be pan fried with butter and onions, or lightly sautéed. If you pan fry them with butter, or butter and oil, they will be nice and crispy. A light sauté will yield nice and soft little pockets of goodness.

    You can do the whole domestic, purist thing like you’ve listed here, or go to the freezer section in the supermarket and pick up some Mrs. T’s pierogies also, and get similar results. Buy a variety to see which you like best – sauerkraut, potato cheese, onion.

    I hate, HATE rolling out dough and such, but I love pierogies.

    The recipe with the sour cream will make a really nice pierogi dough. It’s important to let it rest for 25-30 minutes before rolling it out.

    I’ve used that recipe as a base and experimented with it. It’s great. Adding a teaspoon of cinnamon and you’ve can do some sweet dessert stuff.

    You poor, poor soul.

    I think we need a pierogi happy hour.

    Oh my goodness!!! Pierogie happy hour; please, please, please!!! :0)

    But I also just remembered the “Poor Man’s Pierogies” I used to make! It’s kind of like a pierogie casserole. Onions, garlic, mashed taters, noodles and cheese or kraut, some spices and some baking- then voila! You have poor man’s pierogies. I would love if somewhere would also carry some stuffed cabbage or haluski too :) yum.

    check out these guys- they’re the upside to Pirates games :p ‘Rogies

    Having spent three+ months eating every dinner with only the S.O., I would dig.

    Few people are aware that Mr. T ever got married, but his wife makes excellent frozen pierogies.

    I pity the fool that don’t buy these!

    Walker, Walker… if you had a Polish or Russian grandmother make them from scratch just for you, you’d understand.

    I have eaten pierogies at Gallo’s Tap Room and they are delicious. I can’t tell if they are homemade, but most everything else on the menu is, so I assume so. Mmmm…dough covered potatos…

    Sometimes if you are really lucky you can find fresh pierogies at Marc’s Deep Discount Drug Store. The pierogies are the nice big one that are twice the size of those Mrs T’s jobbies. Sometimes they even have the sauerkraut ones. They have a store in Westerville off of Rt 3 and 270 and another store on Henderson next to the Fresh Market. As is usual with a Marcs, sometime they are there and sometimes not. It has been a while since I’ve been to Marcs, so no guarantees!

    I think Marc’s is Cleveland based – no wonder they stock them. Thanks for the tip. I’m in that exact location once a week, so I’ll be searching the refrigerated cases. Any area specifically you’ve seen them?

    +1. I use the About.com recipe myself, and it’s a really nice dough to work with. The sour cream is what makes it so easy to roll out, but like Roland said, it’s super important to let the dough rest, not roll it out when the dough is cold, and also not overwork the dough because it makes for really tough pierogies.

    I’ve played around with the idea of opening a pierogy/Eastern European comfort food shop myself – hey Roland, if you’re serious about it, how about a joint venture? :)

    Oh swampkitty! I’m loving what I’m hearing here. If you make ‘em, I’ll eat ‘em.

    You sound serious about this. I hope you are serious about this.

    How my Lithuanian family makes kuldunai:

    Grind beef, season with salt, black pepper, and marjoram

    Make dough

    Work the dough

    Make meatballs

    Line up the meatballs and curl the dough over them

    Cut out the dumplings

    Flute the edges – Kuldunai!

    Now get the vodka out of the freezer.
