Ingredients

How to make it

  • Defrost the yeast rolls and let them rise until doubled in size.
  • While the dough is rising, combine ground meat, shredded onions, garlic, parsely, salt, pepper and ground mustard. Knead the meat mixture well for about 4 minutes. Cover and refrigirate until the dough is ready.
  • When the rolls have doubled in size, punch them down and roll out into thin cicles on a floured surface.
  • Place about 1-1/2 tbsp. of meat mixture in center of each circle and moisten the edges of the dough with cold water. Fold up all the edges of the dough, enclosing the filling. (Refer to pictures). Flatten the filled dough with the palm of your hand into a round pancake.
  • Heat a heavy skillet to a medium heat. Melt 3 tbsp. butter in 2 tbsp. of oil. When the butter/oli is heated, add the meat pasties in batches and cook for about 10 minutes on each side, or until they are crisp and brown. Add additional oil and butter to the pan if necessary. These are best served hot.

    My family loved them but what I added extra(to get more veggies in)is I shredded some carrots into the meat and it turned out quite nice.

    I made these tonight for dinner. Very good! I used these Rhodes rolls as suggested. I did use more meat than the 1 1/2 tsp recipe calls for but that only made them thicker. Another excellent recipe Julia! Thanks!

    Annieamie, there are no spices in the dough. The picture shows little bits of stuff that leaked out from the filling while cooking and got attached to the dough.

    Dollhead, you can serve these with any chutney, which I know isn't Russian, but goes really well with these. Also, you can just serve them with a creamy horseradish sauce, which will be a more Russian version.

    Hi Juels! Well I made these tonight and they were very good. I used the frozen Bridgeford dough instead of the roll dough and made these each about 4-5 inches round. Just from this first experience making them, I learned after the first batch that the dough has to be thinner! But you should have seen how beautifully they "puffed" up in the butter and oil! So thank you once again for a wonderful recipe! This one is truly a Keeper!

    Juels, these look so good! I flagged your picture, too as just looking at them made me hungry. I noticed that there were some spices in the dough. Did you sprinkle the dough with anything before you fried them? If so, please let me know. Thank you for another great recipe! I don't care if I gain a pound from eating these..they're worth it!
