Lazy Pelmeni Rolls Recipe (Russian Meat Filled Dumpling Rolls)

I am so excited to share this Lazy Pelmeni Rolls recipe. It’s a take on one of the most popular authentic Russian dishes you will come across. Pelmeni are meat filled dumplings that take hours to make, boiled in water, and usually served with sour cream. My family and I absolutely love them, including my extremely picky 5 year old son. Honestly I have not met a single person that doesn’t like pelmeni. 

I’ve been working on creating an easy way to be able to enjoy this delicious dish without having to spend half a day on making it. Tried different ways and techniques. This recipe is my favorite of all! Of course don’t get me wrong, there is no way this can replace the delicious authentic pelmeni! It’s a quick and easy take on one of our family’s favorite dishes. Definitely a must try!


Ingredients

10 lasagna pasta sheets ( you’ll only need 8 but I like to cook extra incase some rip)

1 tablespoon of salt (to cook pasta)

1 teaspoon of salt (to cook the rolls) 

Filling

2 lb ground chicken (I bought chicken thighs and ground up the meat myself)

5 tablespoons of onion (finely chopped and divided)

3 garlic cloves (minced)

3 tablespoons of parsley (chopped)

1 tablespoon of seasoning salt

¼ teaspoon of salt

1 egg

3 tablespoons of oil

2 tablespoons of all purpose flour

½ cup of heavy cream

 


How to make Lazy Pelmeni Rolls:

1. Bring to boil a large pot of water, (about 5 or 6 quart) add 1 tablespoon of salt, and place the lasagna pasta sheets in the pot. Cook the pasta for about 7-10 minutes until they’re soft enough to roll but still undercooked. Drain the pasta and set aside.


2. Place a medium size frying pan on high heat then add 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil and 2 tablespoons of finely chopped onion. Saute the onion for a few seconds then add 2 tablespoons of all purpose flour and mix well. 

It will become really thick. Quickly add the heavy cream and keep mixing.

Stir until the the mixture turns in to a thick paste. Remove it from the frying pan and refrigerate. 


3. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit.

4. Grind the chicken, if you already have ground chicken place it in a medium size bowl. Add minced garlic, chopped parsley, seasoning salt, 1 egg, 3 tablespoons of finely chopped onion, and ¼ teaspoon of salt. Remove your flour paste mixture from the refrigerator and drain some of the excess liquid. Add that in to the ground meat and mix well.


 

5. Spread a generous amount of ground chicken on 8 cooked lasagna pasta sheets. roll them up and place them in a deep, oven safe baking dish. Completely cover the rolls with really warm water. I usually boil some water in my teapot then mix it with some cold water. Add 1 teaspoon of salt, cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake it in a preheated oven for 45 minutes.


6. Remove it from the oven and the Lazy Pelmeni Rolls are ready to serve!

So delicious! Enjoy!

My family likes to eat pelmeni topped with sour cream and soy sauce. How do you like to eat your pelmeni?
