Is It Shabbos Again? Yay.
Guys, we’re planning for Shabbos again. Is it just us, or do the days drag but the weeks fly? Here are FT’s top picks for Shabbos dishes that are maybe a little bit different than your standard gefilte and roast chicken, but not so different that your mother in law will raise eyebrows. We’ve got your back, per usual.
- Very Flavorful Fish by Brynie Greisman
There’s a reason salmon is a staple around here- we love how it’s versatile enough to pair with bold flavors yet “regular” enough that your kids don’t squeal with horror when they see what you’ve made. They may even taste it. And like it. You can thank us later.
- Stuffed Schnitzel by Brynie Greisman
When you need something to impress your neighbor who just had you over and clearly cooked for a month in your honor, you go with Brynie’s stuffed shnitzel. Impressive, without the patchka. Which means you have happy guests and a clean kitchen, so whose laughing now? (We are. In sheer delight for you.)
- Fall-off-the-Bone Ribs by Rivky Kleiman
One thing we love is a showstopper, soft-as-buttah meat that you could eat with a spoon, and this is totally it. Sweet and rich, these ribs are the thing you should serve to someone before asking for a big favor. That good.
- Artichoke Skirt Steak Salad by Chaia Frishman
Skirt steak is a great Shabbos salad meat, because although it’s not cheap, a little goes a long way! Chaia Frishman’s salad brings together bright and delicious flavors with a nice balance of vegetables, meat and marinade. What more could you want?
- Smoked Portobello Mushrooms by Rivky Kleiman
Guys, don’t get intimidated by the ingredient list of this phenomenal recipe. It’s worth mixing a couple of extra things together! Whether you want a great pareve side dish or are looking for a vegetable dish that’s a little lighter yet still sophisticated, these supersized stuffed mushrooms are a winner.
- Broccoli Pastrami Sauté by Chanie Nayman
Pastrami is trendifying this amazingly versatile side dish, and we are all over it. In fact, we may or may not be making a double batch so we can scramble some eggs up with the extras for the perfect Sunday night leftovers dinner. And instagramming it immediately thereafter, obvs.
- Crunchy Ramen Noodle Coleslaw by Bracha Rotberg
In some households, it’s not Shabbos unless there’s coleslaw on the table, but doesn’t the same old same old just get sooo boring after a while? Yes. Yes, it does. This version is amazingly crunchy and refreshing, and it’s going to become your new favorite.
And of course, nothing beats homemade, delicious challah! Try the Best Challah Ever recipe for a sure-fire success.
