Jewish Recipes --> Recipes --> Kosher Meat --> Tzimmes

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:
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3 short ribs, well-trimmed
  • salt and pepper
  • 3 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into large cubes
  • 5 medium red potatoes, peeled and cut into large cubes
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 (12 ounce) package prunes with pits
Make a bed of onions in a large Dutch oven. Place ribs over onions and salt and pepper to taste. Cover meat with water and bring to a boil on top of stove. Cover pot and cook 30 minutes. Add potatoes, raisins and 1/4 cup honey.

Cover and cook an additional hour. Add prunes and more water, if needed. Cook another 20 minutes, then place in preheated 325 degree oven and bake for 2 to 3 hours. Do not stir. Add more honey, salt and pepper to taste.

4 main course servings; 8 side dish servings.

Recipe can be prepared 2 days in advance, refrigerated and reheated before serving.
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.
