Keep it Simple
If you follow the Passover Seder traditionally and meticulously by the time you arrive at the main meal, called Shulchan Orech in the Haggadah, people will be far from starving. They may not even be entirely hungry. So don’t overdo your menu.

Roasted Meats on Passover

During Passovers of long ago, the Jewish people would bring the Passover sacrifice to the Beit Hamikdash, and then roast and eat the meat for the Seder meal. Today, many refrain from roasting meat at the Seder so no one should think we are trying to replace the Pesach sacrifice. For this reason my favorite Seder mains are cooked with additional liquid or sauce.

I’ve kept my comments brief so you can get to planning, shopping and cooking quickly.

  1. Such great ideas. No more boring “usuals” !

  2. Great tips Jamie and nice recipe selection.

  3. Great ideas for the seder – I’m going to share them with my mom!

  4. Have to admit, I roast for Pesach, but that Chicken Coq au Vin looks so good I am thinking of it as my second night dinner. If not, then very soon after. Also love the duck sauce chicken. In fact, that dish is one of my go-tos whenever I need something easy but tasty.

    Your first paragraph is a little wonky:
    “Keep it Simple
    If you follow the Passover Seder traditionally and meticulously by the time you arrive at the main meal, called Shulchan Orech in the Haggadah, people will be far from starving. They may not even be entirely hungry. So don’t overdue you menu.”

    “Don’t overdue you…”?

    Thank you. I clicked on a link in the email you sent. It was a picture if matzah pizza, with a link under it. It said I could enter a contest to win $100 or something (I rarely enter contests).

  7. These all look so good!
