Although Polish sauerkraut pierogi recipe is being used all year round, it’s definitely getting popular during Christmas time. For many families, dumplings with sauerkraut are the most important dish on Christmas Eve’s table.
The main reason why is that it is vegetarian food. Traditionally, you are not supposed to eat meat on December, 24th.
Tips For Cooking Pierogi With Sauerkraut
1. Skip mushrooms if you don’t have (or don’t like) them.
Although adding dried mushrooms is the typical way of making the sauerkraut pierogi filling, you may easily skip them.
Eating mushrooms is not recommended for kids or people with digestive problems, so this ingredient is not necessary.
2. Be sure to cook sauerkraut pierogi in boiling hot water!
Otherwise, they will fall apart. Putting them in the cold water is the biggest mistake you can make.
3. When cooked, don’t put pierogi too close together.
After pierogi are cooked and ready, you can either:
- put the butter on top of them and eat them
- carefully put them one by one on a plate/cutting board
If they will be too close, they will stick together. Wait until they cool off, then put them into the bowl. Pour the melted butter on them, then shake gently. Now, they can be either stored in the fridge or freezer.
