1 c
water

pepper

Step-By-Step

1Finely dice the onions.
2Mix raw meat, onions, salt and pepper together in a large bowl.
3Blend all the dough ingredients together and roll out.
4Use a 3-3/8 inch diameter dough press (or dumpling maker) to cut out rounds of dough.
5Fill with 1 Tbsp. of filling and seal shut.
6Lay out on a tray (making sure they are not touching); separate layers with wax paper, and freeze.
