This is a dish I grew up with. My nanna used to make it during winter for the family. It is essentially a filling and soul-warming bowl of comfort food – beef, beetroot, cabbage, tomatoes, and other vegies and herbs.
Varenyky (pronounced vah-rEH-nee-key) are stuffed dumplings from the Russian and Ukraine regions. While they can be made with a variety of fillings – similar to a ravioli, for example – my favourite is a filling of beef mince, potato and onion. Please make them and let me know what you think.
