This Ridiculously Tender Brisket Is Almost Too Good to Be TrueRecipes
Brisket is a hearty cut of beef that requires time and technique to tenderize, making it one of the best cuts for braising and slow cooking. While you’ll see beef brisket served as corned beef in the spring and smoked down in Texas, the classic holiday beef brisket is typically braised in a sweet and tangy gravy. (To learn more about brisket and get tips for buying it, check out our brisket for beginners guide.

21 Delicious Desserts to Serve for PassoverRecipes
The best part of any meal is dessert, if you ask me, and a Passover Seder is no exception. Dessert is a crowd-pleaser, and there are plenty of recipes for Kosher-for-Passover desserts.In traditionally Kosher homes, dairy is not served after a meat dish, so if you’re buying something for dessert, look for the P on the label (don’t forget the iconic store-bought jelly fruit slices and chocolate-covered marshmallows!).

25 Most Delicious Sides for BrisketRecipes
Beef brisket is one of those rare dishes that sits squarely between homey comfort food and sophisticated classic. It’s comfortable on a weeknight dinner table and as the centerpiece of a holiday feast. Beef brisket can be slow-roasted in the oven, set in the slow cooker, or braised in an Instant Pot, where it quickly becomes fall-apart tender. If you don’t have an outdoor smoker, you can still make delicious and tender Texas-style brisket in your oven.

How to Boil Eggs Perfectly Every TimeRecipes
One bad hard-boiled egg can ruin you for life. At least, that’s what I believed until I learned how to cook soft-boiled and hard-boiled eggs, and precisely how I wanted to eat them. The perfect hard-boiled egg has no green ring around the yolk and the innards are creamy and mellow (plus easy to peel!). And if you’re in the mood, you can stop short of the hard-boil and make a gooey soft-boiled egg instead.

Chocolate Caramel Matzo BrittleRecipes
While Passover gives us a reason to make this candy-like dessert, really there’s no need to wait.

Crispy, flaky matzo covered with brown sugar caramel and bittersweet chocolate — this stuff is so addictive you won’t want to wait for Passover.

Recipe: Vegetarian Matzo Ball SoupRecipes
One of the foods I most long for from my childhood bopping around Jewish delicatessens in New York and Los Angeles is the humble bowl of matzo ball soup: a mountain of tender dumplings surrounded by rich stock and not much else. As a child I would nibble each tender spoonful, carefully whittling down my knaidel (as “matzo ball” is called in Yiddish). I felt comforted and loved, not from my grandmother’s kitchen, but by those fascinating, mostly ancient servers who dished it up.

Recipe: Lamb Chops with Pesto CrouteRecipes
This recipe calls for frenched lamb chops, which are chops with the meat cut away from the end of the rib so part of the bone is exposed. Frenching the chop makes it cleaner, and let’s call it fancier — almost like a lamb lollipop, if you will! Your butcher can do this with the quick swipe of a knife; asking him or her to do this makes fast work of this simple-to-prepare dish. Croute simply means “crust” in French. Fancy.

Recipe: Simplest Spiced Lamb StewRecipes
This is the light, fragrant stew created with spring celebrations in mind. Unlike the rich beef stews you cozied up with in winter, this one opts for a subtly spiced, brothy base studded with ultra-tender chunks of lamb and vegetables. It’s casual enough for a simple Sunday supper, although if you spoon it over a bowl of buttery couscous and top with a splash of fresh herbs, it becomes the centerpiece of a dinner party.

Got a Question About Passover, Lox, or Latkes? Ask The Gefilteria!Skills
The supermarket shelves are lined with matzo, and butchers are stocking up on brisket, which can only mean one thing: Passover is right around the corner. A weeklong celebration of the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt, Passover is notable for things you aren’t allowed to eat (including leavened bread). But that doesn’t mean this isn’t a holiday for food lovers! The nightly feast is full of symbolic (and tasty) dishes.
