An Italian Shabbat Menu - Joy of Kosher

The Shabbat that falls in the middle of the 9 days before Tisha B'av is always one filled with meat since the other 8 days are meat free, it's the time to get our fill. This week we are going Italian with traditional  Roman, Italian food.  This meat filled menu will literally jump into your belly.

BEEF TARTARE

grow and behold beef tartar

Start the meal with a cold beef tartare served with a simple arugula salad and/or a few vegetable salads, like our Italian Tomato Salad

ROMAN SALTIMBOCCA and ITALIAN MASHED POTATOES

Roman Saltimbocca

The traditional Roman recipe for Saltimbocca (literally “jump in your mouth”) uses bresaola, a type of “kosher prosciutto” made from a lean cut of beef cured in spices and salt and left to hang for a month. Unless you can find kosher bresaola or goose “prosciutto” near you, go ahead and use salami.

PAN CHARRED GREEN BEANS

Pan Charred Green Beans with Harissa

Char your green beans and serve with almonds, for an extra kick use the harissa.  

NON DAIRY CREME BRULEE

Non Dairy Creme Brulee
