Ingredients:

1 lb – 1 lb 1.5 oz flour
24.5 oz (700 g) ground meat
1 egg
7 fl.oz (200 mL) warm water
11.5 oz (300 g) onion
3 garlic clove
2 tbsp sour cream
2 tbsp tomato paste
Salt, ground black pepper, and greens on your taste
3 tbsp vegetable oil
3-4 tbsp flour

Method:

In a large bowl, blend a warm water and an egg together.

Pour a flour into the bowl, and knead a dough.

Set aside.

Chop onions and garlic cloves, and stir a half of the onions with a ground meat.

Add a salt, a pepper, greens (and other spices, optionally) to the meat with the garlic and onions, and stir one more time thoroughly.

Divide the dough into 2 equal parts.

Sprinkle a table with a flour, and knead one of dough halves on the table one more time.

Roll this piece into long stripe (3:1 length to width).

Put one half of the ground meat with spices onto a middle of the dough stripe evenly.

Roll the dough alongside, and press the edges.

Cut a roll into 1”-width pieces.

Sprinkle a board with flour, and place the roll pieces on it.

Press on top slightly. This is not cooked strumbes.

Make a sauce: stir-fry onions and garlics in a deep skillet with a 1-2 tbsp vegetable oil.

Add a sour cream, a tomato paste, salt, and pepper.

Stir well, and simmer for about 3-4 minutes.

Pre-heat a wide deep skillet with 2 tbsp vegetable oil, and place the strumbes into the skillet.

Add 5.2 fl oz (150 mL) a warm water into the skillet, and set a heating to low.

When the water starts to boil, pour the sour cream-onion sauce evenly into skillet with strumbes, cover skillet with a lid, and simmer for about 30 minutes over the low heating.

Serve strumbes hot, and cook the second half of strumbes (or, you can freeze them until the next time).
