Combine ground beef, onions, salt, pepper, cinnamon and walnuts to make a savory filling for tasty meat dumplings. These homey tidbits can be served boiled or fried.
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 2 pounds lean ground beef
- 4 onions, chopped
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 pinch ground cinnamon (optional)
- 1/8 cup crushed walnuts
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 cups warm water
In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat and add beef, onions, salt and pepper to taste, cinnamon, and nuts; cook until beef is no longer pink. Remove from heat and let cool.
In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, salt, eggs, and water; mix until dough is smooth. Roll the dough into a ball and cut into 10 pieces.
On a floured board, roll flat each piece of dough; cut out 5 circles, about 3 inches in diameter. Place about 1 teaspoon of meat filling in the middle of each circle; fold the dough over and seal the edges with a small amount of water.
