Jewish Recipes --> Recipes --> Kosher Meat

Tzimmes: The actual word tzimmes means to make a fuss over someone or something. It is the sense of the word that gives this dish its name, a lot of things mixed together.
Recipe Ingredients:
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1-2 onions, sliced
  • 3-4 pounds chuck or beef brisket
  • 3-4 large carrots, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 2-3 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 1 1/2 cups dried prunes, pitted
    (soak them 30 min. if really dry)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • a few grindings of peppercorns
  • water

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. In oven safe casserole or pan, heat the oil and then cook the onion, stirring and cooking until light brown. Set the meat on top of the onions, and then arrange the carrots, potatoes, and prunes around the sides.

Spoon the honey over, sprinkle with lemon zest, lemon juice, cinnamon, salt and pepper. Pour over enough water just to cover the meat. Cover the pot and bring to a boil on the range, and then put in oven for 4 hours.

To serve, slice meat and arrange vegetables around. Drizzle with any remaining juices.

Cooking Tips:   Zesting & Grating Tips:

* If you are using a lemon for zest and juice, grate the zest first and then squeeze the juice.

* When grating lemon peel, use this fast and easy trick. Cover the zest side of your grater with plastic wrap and grate the lemon over the plastic wrap (remember don't grate the bitter white pith that's under the peel). Most of the zest will remain on the plastic wrap and thus can't stick in the holes of the grater. Just pull the plastic wrap off and shake the zest onto a plate.
