Sweet Holiday Tender Brisket with Red Wine

1 Comment 10 September 2014

Here is another kosher recipe to put on to your seder menu.

Brisket, brick roast and minute steak recipes are staples for our Jewish holiday meals. I buy organic brick roast at the Kosher butcher. Hopefully there are less unwanted chemicals and hormones in the beef! This is a quick and easy recipe for Passover.

 

This recipe is courtesy of Gourmet Kosher Cooking

Brisket Recipe Ingredients:

  • 2 medium shallots, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4  teaspoons chili powder
  • 4  teaspoons smoked paprika or Hungarian paprika
  • 2  teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2  teaspoons oregano
  • 1  teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4  pounds first-cut brisket
  • ¼ cup red wine
  • 1  cup chicken stock
  • 1  14-ounce can diced tomatoes
  • ¼  cup packed dark brown sugar
  • ¼  cup cider vinegar

Directions

  1. Combine shallots, garlic, chili powder, paprika, cinnamon, oregano and salt in a small bowl. Rub into both sides of meat. Set the meat in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish, cover and refrigerate for at least 8 hours or overnight.
  2. Pour wine and stock over the meat. Cover the pan with foil and set aside at room temperature while the oven heats to 350°F.
  3. Bake the brisket, covered, for 2 hours. Meanwhile, blend tomatoes, brown sugar and vinegar in a large blender or food processor until smooth.
  4. After 2 hours, pour the tomato mixture over the meat; continue baking, covered, until fork-tender, basting with pan juices every 30 minutes, for about 1 1/2 hours more.
  5. Remove the meat from the sauce. Let rest for 10 minutes; then slice against the grain. Skim the fat from the sauce in the pan; pour the sauce over the meat and serve.

 Though I have to admit that I am partial to my mother in law’s Syrian style Haroset, I love sharing haroset recipes from other communities. Come to think of it, how nice would it be to add a selection of different Harosets from around the world on the table with their own place cards? 

Here are some photos  that I just gathered for some table top food tagging inspiration….

Eggplant Rollups with Hashu (Meat) and Rice Filling

Eggplant-Rollups-The-Jewish-Hostess-550x366

hashu meat, syrian style,

hashu, veal stuffing,meat stuffing, stuffing for vegetables,

Way back in the days when my grandparents resided in Syria, there was no such thing as  a huge slab of meat for the entire family,  so the women had to stretch a pound of meat by grinding and mixing it with short grain rice (faster cooking time), salt, allspice, and cinnamon.  They would stuff this “hashu” filling into the  vegetables that were bought in the local souk in the city. Of course the vegetables were laboriously  scooped upon arrival home. Fruits, vegetables and poultry from the Aleppo region were know to be organic and  extra tasty, and the former residents will passionately attest to it. I will never forget the pride of one of the women that we interviewed for the Sephardic Heritage Museum project when she said, “You haven’t even tasted a CHERRY until you’ve tasted one from Aleppo!” Fortunately, our grandparents brought the memories of the flavors of their native land, and adapted them to our American menu. I’m not actually sure if they made eggplant rollups back in Syria, but I’m sure that they stuffed their  baby eggplants with “hashu”. For a more detailed post on how to make hashu click HERE.

I really enjoy making eggplant rollups for the holidays when one meal rolls into the next because you can just pull it out of the freezer to defrost in the morning and pop into the oven a couple of hours before serving.

If you do freeze in advance, then just remember to defrost and add a little water to the edges of the pyrex before cooking!

Summer Icebox Cake- Chocolate and Dairy!

Summer Icebox Cake- Chocolate and Dairy!

4 Comments 03 May 2013

Shirley Mamiye, an NYU Art History student, is also a professional baker who is on top of the dessert trends. She is also one of the few bakers I know that will give out her recipes and NOT LEAVE ANY INGREDIENTS OUT!!!!

If you think that you can stop at one teeny spoon of her icebox cake, then think again! Get ready to burn some calories after indulging!  Enjoy this luscious dessert! Marlene

p.s. You can email Shirley to cater your desserts for your next event- click HERE.

This gorgeous cake is basically made up of layers of stacked, chocolaty cookies and fluffy whipped cream. Placing the cake in the cake into the freezer after its been assembled allows the cookies to soften, creating a melt-in-your-mouth confection perfect for Shavuot!! This wonderful dessert takes some time to make, but each step is simple on its own… and the end result is well worth it!! Enjoy! Shirley

Chocolate Wafers:

  • 2-¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup+2 tbs unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1-3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 + 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 + 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 21 tablespoons unsalted butter, slightly softened
  • 4 1/2 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1 ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Combine the flour, cocoa, sugar, salt, and baking soda in the bowl of food processor and pulse several times to mix thoroughly. Cut the butter into about 12 chunks and add them to the bowl. Pulse several times. Combine the milk and vanilla in a small cup. With the processor running, add the milk mixture and continue to process until the mixture clumps around the blade or the sides of the bowl. Transfer the dough to a large bowl or a cutting board and knead a few times to make sure it is evenly blended.

Form the dough into a log about 14 inches long and 1 3/4 inches in diameter. Wrap the log in wax paper or foil and refrigerate until firm, at least one hour, or until needed.

Position the racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven and preheat the oven to 350°F. Line the baking sheets with parchment paper. Cut the log of dough into slices a scant 1/4-inch thick (I went thinner, closer to 1/8 of inch. If you’re trying to emulate store-bought wafers, slice as thin as you can, and watch the baking time carefully, as it might be less.) and place them one inch apart on the lined sheets (cookies will spread). Bake, rotating the baking sheet from top to bottom and back to front about halfway through baking, for a total of 12 to 15 minutes. The cookies will puff up and deflate; they are done about 1 1/2 minutes after they deflate.

Cool the cookies on the baking sheets on racks, or slide the parchment onto racks to cool completely. These cookies may be stored in an airtight container for up to two weeks or be frozen for up to two months.

Note: These cookies should crisp as they cool. If they don’t, you’re not baking them long enough — in which case, return them to the oven to reheat and bake a little longer, then cool again.

 

To Assemble:

  • 3 cups heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • Unsweetened cocoa (or chocolate shavings)

In a large bowl, beat cream, sugar and vanilla with an electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form.

On a flat serving plate, arrange 7 cookies side by side in a circle, keeping 1 cookie in the center.

Spread with 1/2 cup whipped cream, making a 7-inch circle. Repeat with remaining cookies and cream, making 11 layers of cookies and ending with a layer of cream (there will be a few cookies left over). Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

To serve, dust top lightly with cocoa powder or chocolate shavings or sugar flowers

Sheva Berachot, Bridal Shower, or Mother’s Day Themed Berry Filled Heart Cake

4 Comments 26 April 2013

 

Bridal Shower Cake, Sheva Berachot Cake, The Jewish Hostess

This is a wonderful and easy romantic berry cake that any level baker can whip up like a pro. I am hosting a Sheva Berachot next week and this cake is tops on my dessert menu.  Save this in your desserts folder for any heart shaped themed dessert such as Mother’s Day, a Bridal Shower, and Sheva Berachot. I would also cut out a dreidel shape for Hanukka, or triangle for Purim. Why not? The fillings are unlimited too! Use a tree shape for Tu bishvat and mound with new fruits and voila! You’ve got your own unique dessert creation! Have fun and send me your fruit filled cakes- I would LOVE to see what you’ve come up with!

p.s.- This cake is also a perfect pre-Passover excuse to start baking up the Hametz ingredients in the kitchen…

Many thanks to  Emanuelle my Jewish Hostess Instagram follower from London (!) for sharing this fabulous recipe. Check out her blog www.manusmenu.blogspot.com.

  6. Draw half of a heart on one side of the fold.
  7. Cut out the drawn half heart shape while the paper is still folded. You should come out with a heart shape.
  8. When the cakes have baked and cooled, CAREFULLY remove them from their cake trays and place them on a large flat surface.
  9. Place the heart stencil on the top side of one of the cakes. Carefully, with a sharp knife, cut around the shape. Make sure the cake is fully cooled. (You might want to keep your icing in the refrigerator until needed).
  10. Evenly spread a medium layer of icing on the other piece of cake.
  11. Spread jam on top of the icing, but leave centre (where heart will be) without jam.
  12. Gently and carefully place the cut-out-heart piece of cake (with a large spatula and help from a friend if possible!) on top of the other piece.
  13. Make sure it is placed evenly (and the heart actually looks like a heart!)
  14. Pour the fresh red berries in to the heart shaped 'hole'.
  15. Sprinkle with icing sugar. Enjoy!

Instant Tomato Soup with Inside Out Grilled Cheese

3 Comments 18 December 2012

 

This is a great last minute dinner for a cold winter’s night!

A note about the boxed Trader Joe‘s soups: most of the boxed soups are Kof-K Kosher pareve or dairy, but always check the label before purchasing.  They taste really good on their own, but I like to spice them up a bit by throwing in some sauteed veggies, fresh herbs, or dashes of pepper or hot sauce. If you do not live near a Trader Joe’s, there are plenty of other options out there. Imagine makes a creamy organic tomato soup as well. You can purchase kosher soup Amazon.com and have them delivered to your door!”
Imagine Organic Soup, Creamy Tomato, 16-Ounce Boxes (Pack of 12)

Serves 4

Kosher Recipe Ingredients

For the Instant Tomato Soup:

  • 1 Box Trader Joe’s or Imagine Brand Organic Tomato & Roasted Red Pepper Soup
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil (or 1 tbsp dried basil)

For the Grilled Cheese:

  • 8 slices whole wheat bread or any healthy grain bread
  • 1 pkg. shredded cheddar or mozzarella cheese**
  • butter and/or olive oil for coating the pan

Pour a dash of olive oil into a pot, turn heat to medium high, and saute your onion until cooked through. Add the box of soup to the pot, lower the heat all the way and let simmer until it is nice and hot.

Take a large nonstick frying pan and put a dollop of butter/olive oil and heat on a medium flame. Put two slices of bread in the pan until toasted. Sprinkle some cheese (about 1/4 cup, depending on how big your bread is) on one slice, then cover with the other slice. While the cheese is melting, throw some more butter in the pan for it to melt (trust me, this will help with sticking). Spread 1 tbsp cheese on top of the grilled cheese, then delicately flip over to the other side of the pan (with the cheese underneath). Wait until the cheese underneath gets nice and crispy, add butter to the pan, then sprinkle cheese on top and flip again. When both sides are crispy, turn onto a plate and cut in half on the diagonal. Watch the video above for a tutorial.

Ladle the soup into four mugs and sprinkle with basil. Place the mug on its saucer and put the grilled cheese on the plate. Dip the grilled cheese into the soup to eat. Alternatively, get cute bowls with attached plates. I found these Soup & Sandwich plates from Crate & Barrel, they are super cheap and adorable!

* Beware of some boxed/canned soups as they can contain a lot of sodium. I always reach for the “lower sodium” options and make sure I don’t make these soups every day. They are great in a pinch but try not to make them a staple in your kitchen.

**If you’re looking to cut calories, you can use fat free kosher cheese. I love cheese so I cannot make that type of sacrifice, but I find that if you use half regular cheese and half fake cheese (like Smart Beat Cheese) it tastes similar to the original and lowers the calories.

  • 12 oz  butternut squash – peeled, seeded and coarsely grated (use medium hand-grater or food processor shredder attachment) (2 3/4 cups)
  • 1 medium leek – white and light green parts only, halved, thoroughly washed and cut crosswise in 1/4” slices (1 1/4 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons unbleached all purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 large eggs – lightly beaten
  • olive oil for the pan
  • cilantro leaves as garnish
  • 1/4 cup sour cream

Step 1: Heat a small, heavy-bottomed frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the cumin seeds and cook until they turn dark-brown and are fragrant — about 2 minutes — shaking the pan constantly and taking care not to burn the seeds. Transfer to a small bowl and set aside.

Step 2: Place the butternut squash and leek in a medium bowl. Sprinkle with the cumin seeds, flour, salt and pepper. Toss well. Add the eggs and stir until well blended.

Step 3: Heat a large heavy-bottomed frying pan over medium-high heat. Add enough oil to generously cover the pan. Using a dessert spoon, drop two teaspoons’ worth of batter into the hot oil for each latke. Sauté for 2 to 3 minutes until golden-brown. Flip the latkes and sauté for another 2 minutes until golden-brown. (You may have to lower the heat as the pan gets hot: the latkes shouldn’t turn brown too fast and the oil should never come to smoking point.) Transfer to a platter lined with a paper towel. Repeat until the butternut squash mixture has all been used up, adding more oil to the pan as necessary.

Cook’s note: The latkes can be prepared up to 2 hours ahead and kept at room temperature. To re-heat, place on a jellyroll pan and warm in a 400°F preheated oven for 6 to 7 minutes until sizzling and proceed with step 4.

Step 4: Place the latkes on a platter. Spoon a dollop of sour cream on top of each latke. Garnish with a cilantro leaf and serve immediately.

Sicilian Eggplant Meat Rollups for the Jewish Holidays

Use Eggplants to create Sicilian Eggplant - Chopped Meat Casserole

by Vivien Hidary

Sicilian eggplants are sweeter and creamier than any other variety of eggplant. My friend Vivien, a gourmet cook, makes sure that this stuffed eggplant dish is on most of her Jewish holiday menus because its a family favorite! It can be prepared in advance, frozen, and baked before serving.

How to Create this Kosher Dish:

- Peel and slice about 4 sicilian eggplants and place on a tray sprayed with Pam.

- Brush a little olive oil on top of the slices.

- Bake on  350 degrees for approximately 20 minutes.

- Meanwhile, mix equal parts of chopped meat and cooked rice with allspice and salt to make filling.

- When eggplant is done roll each slice around a small mound of filling.

- Arrange in a roaster or Pyrex in rows. Cover with a mixture of water, salt (or chicken consommé) allspice and a drizzle of oil.

- Bake at 350.Bake covered. .

These eggplants are soft and the perfect comfort food . You can also bake them whole and eat with a spoon! Enjoy!
