Bun dough

Meat filling

How to prepare

  1. Brown the ground beef in a large skillet.
  2. Melt 0.5 cup of margarine in a separate saucepan over medium heat.
  3. Add 2 tbsp of flour, stirring to incorporate.
  4. Add dry onion soup mixes and water to make a thick gravy.
  5. Bring to a boil.
  6. Pour the gravy over the browned beef and simmer for about 1 hour. (I do this in my oven).
  7. Add enough fine dry bread crumbs so that the mixture holds together. Do this just before you start forming your meat buns.
  8. In my Bosch mixing bowl, mix the warm water, sugar, and yeast.
  9. Warm the milk, margarine, and lard in the microwave for about 3 – 4 minutes, until the margarine and lard have melted.
  10. Add the milk mixture to the yeast mixture, and add about 8 cups of flour.
  11. Allow this to proof, then add salt, egg, and the remaining flour, just enough to make a soft dough, allowing the machine to knead the dough.
  12. Place the dough in a large bowl (I use my Tupperware™ fix-n-mix bowl). Let it rise for 10 – 15 minutes.
  13. Form perisky by pinching off pieces of dough the size of a walnut. Flatten the dough in the palm of your hand and put about 1 tsp of filling on the dough. Pinch the dough around the filling to seal it well.
  14. Place the perisky on baking sheets and let them rise. You can often start baking the first pans before you are finished panning the remaining ones.
  15. Bake at 400°F (204°C) for 10 – 12 minutes or until golden brown.
  16. Enjoy!

How did I get this recipe?

I have a clear memory of the first time I discovered this recipe for Fleisch Perisky. It was a warm summer day, and I was visiting my Aunt Martha in her cozy little kitchen. She was bustling around, preparing a delicious meal for our family gathering. As I watched her work, I couldn't help but be drawn to the beautiful aroma wafting from the pot on the stove.

"What are you cooking, Aunt Martha?" I asked curiously, leaning in to get a better whiff of the tantalizing scent.

"Oh, just a little something special," she replied with a twinkle in her eye. "It's a family recipe that's been passed down for generations."

Intrigued, I pulled up a chair and watched as she deftly rolled out the dough and filled it with a savory meat mixture. She then carefully folded the dough over, creating little pockets of goodness that she placed on a baking sheet.

"These are Fleisch Perisky," Aunt Martha explained, brushing the tops with a beaten egg before sliding them into the oven. "They're a traditional dish from our homeland, a savory pastry filled with seasoned beef and onions. They're always a hit at family gatherings."

As the Fleisch Perisky baked, filling the kitchen with an even more mouthwatering aroma, I couldn't wait to taste them. When they emerged from the oven, golden and crispy, I eagerly grabbed one and took a bite. The flavors exploded in my mouth, a perfect blend of tender meat, sweet onions, and buttery pastry.

From that moment on, I was hooked. I begged Aunt Martha for the recipe, and she graciously shared it with me. I took notes as she explained each step, from making the dough to seasoning the meat filling to shaping the pastries. I couldn't wait to try making them on my own.

Over the years, I honed my skills and perfected the recipe for Fleisch Perisky. I added my own touches, experimenting with different spices and fillings to create a version that was uniquely mine. Whenever I made them, the familiar scent would fill my kitchen, bringing back memories of that first taste at Aunt Martha's house.

As I grew older, I realized the power of food to connect us to our past and our loved ones. Each time I made Fleisch Perisky, I felt a connection to my heritage and to the family members who had passed down this recipe through the generations. It was more than just a dish; it was a link to my roots and a way to honor those who had come before me.

I shared the recipe with my own children and grandchildren, passing on not just the ingredients and technique but the stories and memories that went along with it. They, too, fell in love with Fleisch Perisky, making it for special occasions and family gatherings, creating new memories to cherish.

As I sit here now, in my own cozy kitchen, surrounded by the comforting scents of baking bread and simmering soup, I can't help but feel grateful for all the recipes I've collected over the years. Each one tells a story, a connection to a person or a place or a time in my life. And each one brings me joy and comfort, reminding me of the love and warmth that food can bring.

So, as I prepare a batch of Fleisch Perisky for our next family gathering, I do so with a heart full of gratitude and love. I know that each bite will not only nourish our bodies but also feed our souls, connecting us to our past and to each other in a way that only food can. And for that, I am truly thankful.
