Meat Blini With Cheese & Dill


If you have never tried meat blini, you’re in for a tasty surprise! These Ukrainian/Russian little pockets of meaty goodness are made with simple crepes, filled with a beef and cheese mixture, then pan-fried in a bit of butter. The filling is so juicy and flavorful! And don’t forget to serve them with a dollop of sour cream for an authentic culinary experience! These are seasoned with dill, a traditional Eastern European and Russian herb that is used to season just about everything in our cuisine!

Making these at home brings back so many wonderful memories of my grandmother cooking these for us! I loved to visit babushka because she always had cabbage piroshki, cheese pancakes and blini on hand for us to enjoy. We would run across the street to visit her and come home with extras to share. This meat blini recipe is an homage to her and a ‘thank you’ for sharing such an incredible recipes with me!
