this was a quick easy meal using store bough pierogies and cabbage, which was a steal after st patty's day.
- 24 frozen potato cheese pierogi, defrosted
- 4 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 6 slices bacon, chopped
- 1 large onion, sliced
- 4 garlic cloves, chopped
- 8 ounces sliced mushrooms
- 1 lb cabbage, thinly sliced
- 1⁄4 cup water
- salt, pepper to taste
- 1⁄3 cup fresh dill, chopped
- sour cream, for serving (optional)
- heat 1 tbsp oil and 1 tbsp butter in a skillet.
- add pierogies, in batches and saute until browned on both sides, 5 minutes per side.
- add more oil and butter if needed for the next batch, keep warm.
- heat 1 tbsp oil in same skillet, add bacon, cook until crispy and set on paper towels to drain.
- pour most fat off of skillet.
- add 1 tbsp oil, saute onions, mushrooms and garlic until golden, about 8 minutes.
- add cabbage, water, salt, pepper and cover. cook until cabbage is tender,2-3 minutes, if you like your cabbage softer.
- or you can just keep stirring, uncovered until the cabbage is crisp tender.
- place pierogies on a platter, pour cabbage mixture over, garnish with bacon and dill.
- serve with sour cream if desired.
Very good. Quick and easy. Subbed bacon fat for the butter and oil. Hmmm... bacon. Omitted the garlic and dill for personal preference. Used the uncovered method for a more tender-crisp cabbage. Eliminating the boiling step and using thawed pierogies was nice. Less dishes and time. However it also provided a much crisper / hard pierogie.
Hi All! I gave this recipe 5 stars because of the great idea... I just "tweaked" it my way a little. I used a ham steak cut up in larger sections, no mushrooms, I used a little ground fennel to taste and sauted 2 apples cut in slices. I layered in a large casserole dish-pierogies,ham,apples,and then cabbage cut in ribbons. I added a pinch of sugar to the cabbage saute as well, nice presentation. Thanks for the great idea! OOOOps! almost forgot-I completely deleted the dill! Whew!
chia, wonderful! this is real comfort food! oh, they were so good! we had a ball eating the pierogies. Thanks so much for allowing me the luxury of remembering my grandparents via your pierogies. Thanks a lot, Diane :=)
