What can I do to prevent Pierogis from coming apart during the boiling process?

I’ve tried using a pierogi mold and also sealing the dumplings with a fork. They still come apart.

    Dont overfill, seal well,

    I just steam them lightly, then fry lightly like 'pot stickers'.

  • Are you using home made or store bought?

    Either way you want the water just as a boil, Don't over boil.

    If you are using home made make sure there are no air bubbles, and that they are sealed well.

    The heat is too high!!!

    Poke dough w fork, very lightly and then simmer until done. Watch them!!!

    Try putting them into Simmering water rather than boiling water.

    Keep the water at a gentler simmer rather than a rolling boil, like when cooking ravioli.

    Steam them Instead of boiling them.

    I make keto friendly verenyky's out of fathead dough (Almond flour) but they burst when boiled.

    I steam verenyky/pierogi's nowadays & they stay In tact nicely.

    You may be putting more filling than you should this will cause the pierogis to open up. The filling expands as it cooks.
