COOKING AND PREPARATION INSTRUCTIONS

The best way to enjoy Pastrami, Corned Beef or Brisket is HOT.


WHOLE PASTRAMI
  1. Remove meat from foil and paper.
  2. Place in large pot of water and boil for 3 hours, or until tender. (Use a fork to test for tenderness.) Be sure to watch the water level so that the water does not evaporate. The meat should be submerged in water at all times.

  3. Remove from heat and trim any excess fat, if so desired.

  4. Slice against the grain for maximum flavor and softness..


SLICED MEATS (PASTRAMI, CORNED BEEF, BRISKET, TONGUE, AND TURKEY)

Separate and loosen meat and sprinkle with 2-3 tablespoons of water.

Then, EITHER:

  • Place on a microwave-safe plate, cover with a damp paper towel, and microwave on HIGH for 40-60 seconds. Remove from the microwave, leaving the cover on and WAIT for 30 seconds. Uncover and ENJOY!

  • Place the sliced meat in a double boiler or steamer (a spaghetti pot, colander and lid will work well!). Steam only until the meat gets hot for about 3 minutes. Don't over-steam!

SOUP
  1. Empty the quart container(s) into a pot large enough to fit the soup.

  2. Heat on a low flame, stirring occasionally, until the desired temperature is reached.

KNISHES
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. Place knishes on a baking sheet and bake until hot and golden brown. Be careful not to burn them!

Alternatively, you can also heat them in a microwave oven on high for 3-4 minutes*

*Oven temperatures and times may vary

KUGEL

Traditional Oven:

  1. Place the Kugel in it's frozen state on a flat surface/tray and allow to completely defrost (thaw).

  2. Once completely defrosted, heat oven to 325° and place Kugel in it's aluminum tray onto a flat baking sheet onto center rack of oven;

  3. Heat for 30-minutes (remove cover for last 10 minutes of heating for a crispy top)

  4. Remove from oven; grab fork and knife (by their respective handles..) and Dig In!

Microwave Oven (if you must..):

CAUTION: REMOVE KUGEL FROM TIN!

  1. Place defrosted Kugel on a microwave-safe plate. .

  2. Set on High for 8 minutes

  3. Go set your table, grab a refreshing, sparkling beverage, then remove Kugel from microwave.

¡Voila! A hot, tasty traditional Kugel brimming with sweet delicious flavor.

 

MINI LATKES

  1. In a frying pan, add 1 inch of canola or other vegetable-based oil. Use enough oil to ensure latkes will be fully submerged. Do not use olive or nut-based oil, as that will change the latke flavor.

  2. Heat oil to around 350 degrees before adding latkes

  3. Fry latkes for 30-60 seconds until desired crispiness, then pat dry with a paper towl & serve!

Alternatively, latkes can be baked in oven at 500 deg for 12 mins, but may not come out as crispy as frying method.

Note we do NOT recommend microwaving mini latkes.

  2. Place Pigs in a Blanket on a baking sheet and bake until hot and golden brown. Be careful not to burn them!

PICKLES

Our 10lb buckets of pickles come with a seasoning packet of our pickle spices. Since we can’t ship them in their brine, when you receive them, mix cold water, 1 teaspoon of salt and the contents of the seasoning packing into the bucket, add the whole pickles back in and refrigerate.
