Directions

Brown the stewing beef lightly in a little oil in a 2 quart saucepan. Add the water and sugar and bring to a boil, then reduce to a very low simmer. Peel and dice the potatoes and carrots and add to the pot. Let it stew covered at very low heat for at least an hour, adding water periodically if necessary. There should be water, but it should not be soggy. Once the potatoes are soft, take the cover off and let most of the water boil off. Mash the whole mixture until the potato part is the consistency of mashed potatoes. Put the mash into a casserole dish and bake for about 30 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. stewing beef, cut into small chunks
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1 cup of water
  • 3 sweet potatoes
  • 3 white potatoes
  • 5 carrots

Matzah Ball Soup

Matzah balls are more traditionally known as knaydelach (Yiddish for dumplings). Matzah ball soup is generally a very thin chicken broth with two or three ping-pong-ball sized matzah balls (or sometimes one very large matzah ball) in it. Sometimes, a few large pieces of carrot or celery are added. Matzah balls can be very soft and light or firm and heavy -- sometimes the two types are referred to as "floaters and sinkers." Matzah ball soup is a staple at all Jewish holidays.
