3 cloves garlic – sliced

4 fresh bay leaves

6 sprigs thyme

¾ oz. parsley stem – chopped coarse

1 Tbsp. whole black peppercorns

2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

½ c. white wine

Salt and pepper to taste


Method:


Beef or Lamb Filling:

Mix all together and refrigerate until needed.


Dough:

Combine in mixing bowl (except 2 oz. melted butter). Knead until smooth. Divide into two balls and cover with a towel to rest, 30-45 minutes. With a rolling pin, roll dough out to an even thickness of about 1/8”. Cut the rolled dough into squares of about 1-1/2”. Place a marble size portion of meat in the center of each square and pinch the ends together (around the meat leaving the top exposed) to resemble a boat shape. Continue until dough/meat mixture is gone.


Chicken Broth:

Gently warm oil in sauce pot, add all aromatics and sweat lightly about 1 minute. Add wine to deglaze and reduce until about dry. Add chicken stock and reduce by about a quarter (down to 6 c.). Strain and adjust seasoning to taste

To bake put the 2 oz. melted butter on baking pan and fill with Manti. Bake at 375°F for 20 - 30 minutes, until Manti are lightly browned. Remove and allow to cool slightly. Serve in chicken broth with yogurt and chopped parsley.


Robin's Notes:

1. Wonton wraps would work well and save time. ( Short Cut )

2. I spread a little water on the edges of each dough square to act as “glue” to hold the dough together when cooking. After placing about ½ teaspoon of the cooled filling in the center of the dough shape: lift up and pinch together neighboring corners to form a canoe.
