Potato Pancakes with Meat Filling


  • 2½ pounds Yukon Gold potatoes
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 small onion (or half of a large onion)
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Meat Filling
    • ½ pound ground pork (or any other ground meat that you like)
    • 1 very small onion
    • ¼ teaspoon salt
    • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 2 tablespoons water


Grate the potatoes on the finest grater or puree in a food processor.

Using a sieve, drain grated potatoes separating the liquid from the starch. Discard the liquid. Add the grated potatoes to the bowl with the starch.

Grate the onion on the finest grater also.

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl.

Meanwhile, mix the meat filling ingredients together and set aside.

Heat about 1 tablespoon of oil in a non stick skillet over medium heat.

Using a large spoon, portion out four pancakes. Shape 1-2 tablespoons of meat filling into a patty and place on top of the pancake.

Cover the meat with more potato mixture.

Cook until golden on both sides.
