Sweet Holiday Tender Brisket with Red Wine

1 Comment 10 September 2015

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.

11 Comments 27 March 2014

 

by Claudia Bildirici
My Mom made this marshmallow and nut recipe every single year on Passover. We all looked forward to this special Passover dessert. I look back now and wonder, why did she only made them on Passover?
The truth is, you can really make these passover dessert treats all year round but this year, just like my mom,  I waited till Passover 2011 to make them again!

PASSOVER INGREDIENTS :

  • one bag chocolate chips
  • 1 cap of oil
  • two 5 ounce bag mini marshmallows
  • 1 cup chopped toasted pecans
Create this Kosher Recipe:
  1. toast pecans in a 350 oven for 10 min. Toasting will bring out the flavor.  Watch closely they burn quickly
  2. In a microwave melt chocolate chips on high for 30 seconds Mix return for another 30 seconds
  3. do not try to melt the chip completely . they will melt when you mix the chocolate
  4. add a cap of oil to the chocolate and mix ( this will thin the chocolate)
  5. Cool a couple of min.
  6. add marshmallows and 1/4 cup of pecans
  7. mix till all combined and no whites of the marshmallow show
  8. now for the mess!!
  9. take one parchment paper and sprinkle with pecans.. top with 1/2 the mixture in a log shape. top with more pecans
  10. now roll the mixture in the parchment paper trying to tighten the mixture.
  11. repeat and chill till firm about 1-2 hours  Remove paper slice into 1″ rounds and store in freezer. or should I say HIDE in the freezer?
Enjoy and happy holiday!

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!

Warm Chickpea Salad with Arugula for Passover

No Comments 15 January 2012

Many Sepahrdic Jews eat chick peas on Passover, and I am lucky to be one of them. If you do buy chick peas in a can for Passover, make sure it is Kosher certified for Passover.

If you are of  Ashkenaz descent, then start using up your chametz chickpeas by trying this savory recipe ASAP!

To read more about  kitniyot on Passover, click HERE.

This recipe is too good to pass up.  It took 10 minutes to prepare, and took another 10 minutes for the family to devour it. Use more olive oil, salt, pepper,vinegar  and honey if you have  a lot of arugula. Serve as a weeknight tasty side dish, or as a midday main course with friends.

Check out this REVIEW of this great Mark Bittman cook book.

From : How to Cook Everything, Completely Revised 10th Anniversary Edition: 2,000 Simple Recipes for Great Food

Makes: 4 side- or 2 main-dish servings

Time: 20 minutes with precooked beans

  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked or drained canned chickpeas
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 4 cups arugula leaves
  • 1 small red onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 4 hard-cooked eggs, quartered (optional)

Kosher Sephardic Passover Recipe Directions

1. Put the olive oil in a deep skillet over medium heat. When hot, add the ginger, garlic, and cumin and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant and the ginger and garlic are soft, 1 to 2 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, then stir in the chickpeas until hot and coated in the oil and seasonings, about 3 minutes more.

2. Remove from heat and with a fork, stir in the vinegar, honey, and 1 tablespoon water. Mash a few of the chickpeas as you stir to add texture to the dressing. Put the arugula and red onion in a large bowl and toss with the warm chickpea dressing. Taste and adjust the seasoning. Serve immediately, garnished with hard-cooked eggs if you like.

No Comments 20 September 2011

Try this “healthier” version of french fries. The fresh basil is a nice surprise on the crispy sweet potatoes. This is a delicious side dish for a dairy or meat meal, but don’t expect any leftovers.

The Best Sephardic Charoset Recipe Ever

The Best Sephardic Charoset Recipe Ever

6 Comments 16 March 2011

This Sephardic Charoset Recipe has been handed down for generations by my husband’s side of the family- the Shamah’s of Aleppo.

Medjool dates are used. Even though they are double the price, you will find that fresh medjool dates are juicy and extra delectable.

My Mother in law makes the best charoset  or haroset) of all time.  Of course although its a seder plate item, its’ sweet simplicity is just perfect every single morning of Passover as we slather it on (I love whole wheat) matzoh. Sitting down with a cup of coffee and the newspaper on Passover completes this delectable breakfast.

Every year, about 2 weeks before the holiday, my mother in law drops off three medium size tupperwares full of her home made charoset . We put it in the freezer and defrost a container one or two days before enjoying it down to the last drop.

Im so glad that I finally asked her for the recipe and I’d love to share it with all of my Passover hostesses.

Ingredients:

    1. 6 pounds of Medjool dates, sliced lengthwise, pit removed.
    2. Each date must be checked for worms or bugs. (you’d be surprised at what you may find lurking in there!)
    3. Soak the pitted and checked dates in water for 2 hours. Drain.
    4. Boil dates till soft. Cool and slip off the peel if you want a smoother Charoset consistency.
    5. Grind witha Cuisinart with a metal blade.
    6. When serving mix in 2 tbspoons sweet wine per  1 cup of charoset.
    7. Sprinkle with chopped walnuts. The combo is an unforgettable, once a year treat!
    8. Thats it! Store in airtight containers and freeze if its more than three days before Passover. You can store it in pretty jars, wrap with a ribbon and give out as a made -with- love Passover gift.

Enjoy- Happy Holiday!

p.s.- please submit your passover  recipes! I would love to post them!

Organic Wild Salmon with Pecans and Pineapple Reduction

kosher fish recipes, kosher pareve recipes, kosher recipes

Organic Wild Salmon with Pecans and Pineapple Reduction

2 Comments 20 February 2011

by Charlie Michelle

I want to preface this great kosher recipe with a little piece of trivia about myself. I really dislike fish. I dislike fish so much that the mere smell of my son’s school on fish-stick days makes me a little green. So when I say that this salmon recipe is amazing, well, that’s saying a lot. A whole lot.

I first tried this kosher recipe at a 5-star restaurant on my wedding anniversary so many years ago. I have no idea what possessed me to order such a dish, given my aforementioned aversion to fish, but I suppose the lure of such an interesting flavor combination–pecans, pineapple, cinnamon, and…fish!…arose my interest. So I tried it. And I loved it. And I set out to replicate it.

My dairy-free kosher recipe is a culmination of lots of trial and error. Tweaking a spice here, altering a crust ingredient there…. but I finally feel I have managed to reproduce the richly flavorful dish I discovered so long ago. And so, dear fellow Jewish Hostesses, I pass it along to you. Why should the restaurant get all the glory?

What you’ll need for two servings:

– Two filets salmon (I use organic, to ensure no artificial coloring has been added)
– 1 cup chopped pecans
– 2 tablespoons vegetable margarine or Earth Balance margarine, softened
– 2 tablespoons brown sugar
– 1 tablespoon flour
– 2 teaspoons cinnamon
– 1 teaspoon nutmeg* (see note)
– 1 teaspoon chili powder
– 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Pineapple sauce:

– 1/2 cup crushed pineapple and juice, pureed in a blender or food processor until smooth
– 2 teaspoons chili powder
– 1/2 cup soy yogurt – vanilla, coconut, pineapple, or pina colada flavors work well

Here’s how you make it:

1) Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place salmon filets skin-side down on your baking sheet.

2) In a small food processor, grind your pecans. You can make them as smooth or as chunky as you like. When they are ground to your liking, transfer them to a small bowl and add your margarine, brown sugar, flour, and spices. Using your fingers (I like to get in there and get dirty!) smush your margarine into the pecans as if you were making a crumb pie crust.

3) When everything is well blended, scoop a small handful of your pecan mixture and press it evenly onto each salmon filet. Be generous. That pecan topping is good stuff.

4) Bake salmon at 350 degrees F until it flakes easily with a fork, or its flesh has turned light pink, about 15-20 minutes. When salmon has finished baking, move your oven rack to the second-highest level and broil briefly (2-3 minutes) to make the pecan crust nice and crispy. Because of the sugar content, watch it closely or it will scorch.

To make your sauce:

In a small saucepan, combine pineapple puree and chili powder. Stir well. Cover and bring to a simmer. I like to call it an “aggravated simmer”. Not quite a full boil, but not just a lazy little simmer either. We don’t want to reduce the pineapple, we just want to break it down and bring out the flavor.
After a good 5-6 minutes of “aggravated simmer” (patent pending on that term, hehe!) turn off the heat and add your soy yogurt. Whisk together to blend well.

Serve your pineapple sauce drizzled prettily over the salmon filet, and garnish with something pretty–carrot curls, a parsley or mint leaf, lemon rosebuds, whatever you like. I served mine with a fresh, springy vegetable salad with lime vinaigrette. You can see the kosher recipe for this lovely side dish here.

Enjoy, and happy eating!

*As for the nutmeg, yes, you can totally make it optional.As stated in the kosher recipe, it’s been a work of trial and error, playing with all kinds of in gredient combos to see what works. If you exclude the nutmeg, though, I would definitely replace it with something equally as spicy–maybe ground cloves or an extra pinch of chili powder.

About me:

Charlie’s my name–not short for Charlotte or anything. :) I currently write and maintain a daily food blog, focusing mostly on vegetarian and kosher recipe, ranging from appetizers and side dishes, to dinner and casseroles, to luxurious desserts. My husband serves with the Army, and he recently traveled 1200 miles home for a family emergency. I wanted him to be greeted home with a little bit of luxury, but also with a dish that has a comfort-food appeal to it. Nuts and spices always sing of cooler weather and warm kitchens, while the fresh pineapple sauce lends a happy springtime feel. I thought the combination would be perfect to excite his senses and give him yet another reason to be happy to be home. Enjoy my recipe!

Shirley’s Low Fat Apple Crisp

2 Comments 06 February 2011

My daughter Shirley has been experimenting with new recipes as a newlywed and she is determined to buy lots of low fat healthy ingredients. She used to complain that I was the only mother who sent in organic apples for third grade snack  and she still recalls the sound of the thud that the whole apple made as it hit the bottom of the classroom garbage can. I never understood how she ended up with all those Laffy Taffy wrappers in her jacket pockets…

“Hi Mom

Love,

Shirley”

  • 1/4 cup quick cooking oatmeal
  • 1/4 cup whole grain pastry flour
  • 1/3 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 Tbsp Earth Balance Buttery Spread (if mixture seems dry- add a little more)
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. spray an 8×8-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
  3. In a bowl, thoroughly combine the oatmeal, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and  Earth Balance margarine.
  4. Peel, core, and thinly slice the apples.
  5. Spread the apple slices evenly over the surface of the baking pan.
  6. Sprinkle the oatmeal-flour mixture over the apples.
  7. Bake in the preheated over for 30 minutes or until the apples are tender and the topping is golden brown.

Time for Tea

1 Comment 31 January 2011

When the snow is coming down outside, there’s nothing better than curling up in a cozy sweater with a mug of steaming tea. But don’t settle for that old tea bag you found in the back of your closet – here’s a collection of what’s new, fun and elegant in tea time.

From  Yedi Housewares

We love these heart shaped cup and saucer sets. You can buy a set of 6 cups & saucers in assorted colors (bubblegum pink, banana yellow, lime green, pumpkin orange, turquoise blue and cranberry red). Available in two sizes.

Mighty Leaf Teas-

Mighty Leaf Tea Chamomile Citrus, 15-Count Whole Leaf Pouches (Pack of 3)

This line of specialized teas are packaged in “artisan-crafted whole leaf tea pouches” without any glues or staples, to allow for big pieces of leaves, fruits and herbs. Flavors like chamomile citrus and ginger twist will keep you coming back for more.

2 Karat Cup –

Everyone needs to feel special sometimes, which is when this clever mug from the Museum of Modern Art comes in. Designed by Yusuke Fujinuma, this mug has a Swarovski crystal built in to the “ring,” so you slip on the cool gold band as you wrap your hands around the mug.

“Thank You” Cookies –

Sometimes a mug of fragrant tea is perfect on its own, but sometimes it’s a venue for a sweet kosher buttery cookie on the side. These “world of thanks” cookies sold at Dean and Deluca (and made by Eleni’s cookies) are as educational as they are delicious – teaching you how to say “thank you” in 5 different languages.

Lipton Pyramid Teas

Lipton has decided to replace the old school ‘paper pillow’ tea bags with the new ‘Pyramid Tea Bags’, invented by the Japanese years ago.

The pyramid shape of the tea bag gives room for the tea leaves inside it to expand. This allows you to have the ‘loose-leaf experience’, which adds to the luxurious experience of sipping a cup of these delicately scented tea bags. I was at a Brit Milah recently, and when they served these teas, I knew I had to find them and have them on my dessert table!

Buy Here: Lipton Green Tea, Mandarin Orange, Premium Pyramid Tea Bags, 20-Count Boxes (Pack of 6)

Stash Honey Sticks can be displayed on a silver rectangular  tray on your dessert tray. They come in packs  of 6, are made out of pure clover honey, and  are kof-k certified.
