Meat entrees

My Favorite Brisket

Submitted by Joan Marcus

You might want to substitute a Kosher for Passover soup mix, as the Lipton brand is not appropriate for Passover. 

Tamale Hot Dish

Recipe contributed in honor of Rose Weiner, by Leta Weiner Levinger

Whenever we would travel to Omaha to visit Grandma and Grandpa Weiner, Our 3 sons would ask Grandma(Rose) to make their favorite Tamale Casserole.


Special Cheese Pasta

Recipe contributed in honor of Hermene Zweiback by Rosie Zweiback

My mother Hermene Zweiback LOVED great food and she used to make this.  I think she found the recipe in the World Herald.  When I was newly married, I didn't know how to cook much at all and she sent this recipe to me. It was fool proof and a huge hit.  The night I went into labor with my first child, our daughter Grace, I made this dish not realizing that I wasn't going to get to eat it.  Just as my husband and I sat down to dinner, my contractions started and we went to the hospital. All of our kids love this dish but it has always been Grace's favorite.  In fact, she named it.  We are convinced she loves it because she caught a whiff of it in our kitchen right before she was born.  That garlic and basil combination is mighty powerful.

Scrumptious Brisket

Recipe contributed in honor of Bernice Susskind

by Sandra Block-Brezner


This recipe honors my mother Bernice Susskind, and Rebbitzin of Rabbi David J. Susskind of St. Petersburg, FL, both of blessed memory. She always made this brisket for holidays and special occasions. I have continued that tradition with my family and friends, including sharing it with Lois Linder, mother of Rabbi Eric Linder. She asked that I share this with you.


Recipe contributed in honor of Ruth Liebenstein

by Iris Ricks


When I told my daughter about this cookbook, she said, "You have to put in Grandma Ruth's recipe for Chicken Cacciatore.  I have such great memories of that dish whenever we went to Chicago to visit Grandma and Grandpa.  I didn't really like the chicken so much but loved the memory of her making it".  My son, on the other hand, really loved this dish!  When I searched my mother's recipe box, I found this recipe but it was just called Chicken.


Recipe contributed in honor of Elly Silverman and Liz Feinman


by Mimi Silverman

My mother is a terrible cook.  She never used an onion. Her idea of chicken was chicken with paprika in the oven.  Meatballs were meat (no spices) What she lacked in the kitchen she overcame with her shopping abilities. My mother in law is a great cook.  This is her recipe.  Comfort food at its best.  I'm blessed to have them both in my life but, both live far away and I miss having them close by.

Glazed Lamb Chops

Recipe contributed in honor of Bess Trustin

by Barbara Taxman 


Bess Trustin- my mother was a very busy lady. She kept to the books for my Dad's business, and was on many boards & president of Sisterhood a couple of times. When she did cook, it was always an attractive plate. I remember loving these lamb chops.

Spaghetti Sauce

Recipe contributed in honor of Steve Simon by Kathy Simon


Steve was an avid tennis player, and when he bought his first Fila tennis outfit, he was beyond thrilled. I had trouble getting the lid off the pot of sauce, so I asked for help. Steve tried and had trouble too so he took the pot outside and banged it on the ground. The red sauce flew all over the place and ruined his first Fila outfit!

Greek Chicken

Recipe contributed in honor of Marian Bookey

by Andi Kavich


Marian Bookey (my mother) was a wonderful cook. She made many dishes that were "taste" as you go. Her holiska's (spelling) were the best.  They were a little of this and a little of that. I was lucky to have her in my life for 64 years she is dearly missed.

Corned Beef Brisket with Sauce

Recipe contributed in honor of Frieda Krizelman

by Shirley Brody


For 40 years Frieda Krizelman was president of Jewish Women International.  She always directed the group to do good things like going to the "Rainbow House" and making potluck.  One member brought this corned beef dish that I liked it so much, I got the recipe. No sooner did I get the recipe, the woman moved out of town. So I had to make it for the potluck parties of Jewish Women International. Frieda Krizelman died a couple years ago, but I shall always remember how she "made me" do this dish.

Standing Rib Roast

Recipe contributed in honor of Howard D. Vann

by Judy Vann


I prepared this fine entree for my darling husband for 47 years.  It was his favorite.  I served it on special occasions, which could have been any day with Howard.  In keeping with his unique personality, I served my standing rib roast "rare".
