I once worked a bike messenger in San Francisco (switching over to a scooter after 2 days). The money wasn't great, so for lunch I'd get a beef pirozhki from one of those sketchy delis in the back of big city corner stores. They only cost 2 bucks, delivered a ridiculously high number of calories, and even though I knew it wasn't the healthiest thing to eat, I grew to love the taste. So, for this recipe, I set out to recapture that experience.
Recipe Summary test
I'm not sure the amount of filling will match the amount of dough, but if you have extra of either, both can be frozen until next time.
Feel free to substitute water for the chicken broth.
You can mix the dough by hand too.
