What Are Pierogi

Pierogi are one of a kind. They are similar to a dumpling that offers a mashed potato and cheese flavor in every bite. They are great to be used in making casseroles, soups, and more.  The potato filling on these are so rich and savory.

Can I Add Meat To This Soup

Yes, you can add sausage or chicken to this Pierogi Soup. I have actually done shredded chicken that was in the freezer and used it as a quick toss in. I have also diced up Kielbasa and it turned out great. Just make sure the meat you add in is cooked since the cooking time is so fast.

You can easily transform this into a pierogi and sausage soup or chicken and sausage pierogi recipe. Leftover holiday ham or turkey would also be a great addition to this soup.

Can I Make this Pierogi Soup On The Stove

Absolutely! Just saute as directed in the pan and then cook it on the stove just like the Instant Pot until your soup is cooked fully. This is very easy to convert to the stovetop if you don’t want to cook in the Instant Pot.

Do You Use Frozen Or Fresh Pierogis For Instant Pot Soup

For this recipe for Instant Pot soup, you can use fresh or frozen. If you want them to be softer reach for frozen. Or if you want them crisper on the outside reach for fresh so you can get a better sear on the outside when you saute in the Instant Pot.

Is Pierogi Soup Vegetarian

You can make this soup vegetarian by reaching for vegetable broth instead of chicken broth in the recipe. This is a fantastic recipe either way. So feel free to swap it out if you are looking for a vegetarian soup recipe to try out.
