Beef and Dill Stuffed Crepes (or blini or blinchiki) are delicious, filling, and healthy. They are a great lunch or dinner if served with salad. Traditional Russian recipe that can be made in advance and frozen for a quick meal | Imagelicious
1 poundlean beef cut(any big chunk of beef that is not too fatty)
2mediumonions, finely chopped(about 1 cup chopped)
1/2cupchopped dill(or more)
salt, pepper to taste
Boil the beef for about 1 hour or until it's really soft and falling apart. I usually don't add any seasonings to the water but you could add salt and pepper if desired.
While the beef is boiling, fry the finely chopped onions on 1 tablespoon of oil on medium heat for about 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. I like the onions to be quite brown and caramelized.
Once the beef is boiled, cool it slightly and process in the food processor until it's very finely shredded.
Add the fried onions and chopped dill to the beef and mix well. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Optionally, add a couple of tablespoons of beef cooking liquid to the mixture to make it less dry.
Spoon the mixture into the center of each crepe and fold the edges around it to make a parcel.
Brush a big, preferably non-stick, pan with a little bit of leftover oil and add a few stuffed crepes to the pan seam side down. Pan-fry for a few minutes until the edges get golden. Flip and pan dry for another minute or so on the other side. Repeat with the rest of the crepes.
Serve with sour cream or plain yogurt.I personally love a lot more dill but and just add a lot without measuring. Alternatively, you could use parsley or omit any herbs altogether.
