This traditional dumpling is a Kabbalistic food symbolizing the nature of Divine judgment. The white dough encasement represents Divine mercy; the red meat filling, Divine justice. On Yom Kippur, the desire is for mercy to envelop judgment.
  • For Dough:
  • 2 ½ cups unbleached flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 large egg, plus 1 large egg yolk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • For Filling:
  • 1 cup ground beef
  • 1 small onion, grated raw or sautéed (optional)
  • Pinch black pepper
  • salt, for cooking
  • Combine flour and salt in a large bowl. Add egg, egg yolk, and water. Work into a soft, smooth dough using a wooden spoon (you can also use a food processor fitted with the metal blade).
  • Cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or up to overnight.
  • Bring salted water to boil in your deep-dish FIREDISC® cooker. Combine beef, onion (optional), and pepper in a bowl. Mix well.
  • On a heavily floured surface or using a hand-cranked pasta maker, roll out the dough as thin as it will stretch. Cut dough into 3-inch squares; you should have 32. Place half a teaspoon of filling in the center of each square.
  • Fold squares over into triangles and pinch edges closed. Drop finished kreplach into boiling water. Stir gently with a wooden spoon to keep kreplach separate. Let simmer for 20 minutes.
  • If you see kreplach sticking together, separate gently with the wooden spoon. After 20 minutes, remove from FIREDISC® with an Ultimate Frying Weapon or wire skimmer. Serve immediately in hot soup, or freeze.
