Tzimmes is any kind of sweet stew. It usually is orange in color, and includes carrots, sweet potatoes and/or prunes. It is often served on Rosh Hashanah, or the Jewish New Year, because it is a sweet food and symbolizes the wish for a sweet new year.

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
