  • Dough:
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup white rice flour
  • 1/2 cup corn starch -potato starch also works
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Filling:
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 white onion chopped
  • 1 cup pork, cooked
  • 1/2 cup chopped lettuce optional
  • Salt and pepper
  • Sprinkle of cheddar cheese optional
  • Frying:
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 1/2 cup water


  • Combine all the ingredients for the dough in a mixing bowl. Add more rice flour or corn starch if needed. Combine until a dough forms then place in the fridge for 1/2 hour to firm.
  • Filling- place pork in a pan and fry until cooked through, then add olive oil, chopped white onion, chopped lettuce (optional), salt + pepper into pan with pork and saute until cooked. Onions should become caramelized.
  • Take the dough out of the fridge and roll it out. Then take a circular cookie cutter or glass cup, cut out circles.
  • Place 1/2 tbsp of your filling into each circle, fold the circle in half and crimp the edges. Repeat until all of your mixture is used up.
  • To warm, take a frying pan/ skillet (same one used for frying pork and veggies) and place 1/2 cup water with 1 tbsp canola oil into it and place your pierogis flat side down into it, cover with a tight lid and let cook on medium-high heat for 11 minutes or until the flat side becomes lightly browned and crispy.
  • Enjoy 🙂
