Russian flavors for Jersey friends

    Pelmeni (or Russian ravioli or Russain dumplings) is a signature dish and each family throughout Russia (all regions included) has its own secret for making these juicy pieces of meat stuffing wrapped in a thin dough special. They are served boiled and generously buttered (Jersey butter, of course!) steaming hot accompanied by a variety of sauces (garlic and vinegar, or with sour cream). This is how mine turned out when I made them for my Jersey friends and colleagues. A perfect dish to share.
