Popkoff's, North Hollywood, Calif., introduced all-natural frozen Pelmeni and Vareniki, two types of authentic Russian dumplings filled with meat, vegetables or cheese.
Popkoff's uses the highest-quality ingredients, including non-GMO King Arthur flour; Mary's free-range chicken, which is air-chilled and free from antibiotics and steroids; and Meyer Natural Angus Beef, which is free from antibiotics and steroids. Plus, they go from frozen to cooked in only five minutes.
The Pelmeni, similar in appearance to Italian tortellini, are available with chicken, farmer's cheese or beef fillings. The Vareniki, comparable to crescent-shaped Italian ravioli, are filled with either potato and onion or cabbage and carrot.
"Not only do we pride ourselves on keeping these traditional recipes of Eastern Europe alive, but we also have gone to great lengths to make them with only the best ingredients," says Alex Meseonznik, president. "You'll never find a long list of unpronounceable ingredients listed in our products—just common ingredients your grandmother would have used."
Popkoff's Pelmeni and Vareniki are available in 10-ounce packages in retail stores nationwide.
