This is a delicious recipe! I added some dry mustard to the filling and a sprinkle of sharp cheddar cheese to each piroshky. The dough is wonderful to work with and makes terrific rolls (without the filling). Thanks so much!.
The filling was a little bland so I spiced it up with some rosemary, thyme,and basil. You could probably use whatever herbs you have I on hand. This did make way too much filling for the dough, next time I will just use 1lb ground beef. It also made way more then 14-16 that the recipe says, I got about 30 and ended up freezing the leftovers as well as leftover ground beef.
This thing... I want to marry it.
This recipe is abosutely wonderful, just needed a little more detail to dough making for people that are begginer cookers, but simple directions and easy, but time consuming to make.
The crust turned out nice and crispy, but I found the filler to be bland and (if going by the recipe) dry. Next time I may add cream to the sauce, or some fresh peppers to spice things up.
If you pinch the sides tightly then it fries nicely. I loved It. I made a variety of different fillings. Also I substituted 1 cup of flour for whole wheat flour. They were EXCELLENT!
