Savoury pancakes – Blini s myasom

These beef-filled Russian pancakes make a tasty and tempting supper.

Ingredients

For pancakes
250 g flour
500 g milk
3 eggs
30 g sugar
1/2 tsp salt

For savoury filling
700 g lean beef
1 tsp salt
5 pepper corns
1 onion, finely chopped

Mix eggs, salt and sugar in a blender, add milk and flower and continue to mix. Add oil and mix until smooth. Heat a frying pan. Add oil for every pancake. Pour the mixture thinly in the frying pan, turn over and fry until ready.

Boil beef in 2 litres of water until tender for about 2 hours. Transfer the cooked beef in a blender and process until smooth. Fry the chopped onion until golden in colour. Add to the processed beef, mix thoroughly. Place one table spoon of the mixture in the middle of the pancake and fold to form a parcel. Fry in the frying pan on the sealed side first. Fry for a few minutes, then turn over and fry until slightly crispy.

Serve hot.
