Kreplach are a traditional Jewish dumpling filled with ground beef. Kreplach are typically eaten in chicken soup or another kind of broth. I have also seen deep fried kreplach served with dipping sauce as an appetizer. On Purim, we eat hamantaschen cookies that are shaped like triangles to represent the Purim story. These are a perfect addition to your Purim meal because they are triangle shaped dumplings.
2 cups Blends by Orly Tuscany Blend
3/4 teaspoon salt
3 Tablespoons water
Salt and white pepper to taste
1 small onion, chopped
3/4 lb ground meat (at least half cooked)
Sauté the onion with the ground meat.
Combine with the egg and salt and pepper
Beat the eggs slightly. Add salt, water, and enough flour to make a soft dough. Knead well by hand or in the food processor. Divide the dough into 2 balls. Cover with a moist towel.
With flour on your work surface, roll out 1 ball of dough very thin with a rolling pin and cut into 6 strips, each 1-1/2 inches wide. Then cut into 1-1/2 inch squares.
Place 1/2 teaspoon meat mixture on each square. Fold into a triangle and press edges together firmly. Repeat with the second ball of dough.
Drop into boiling water and cook, uncovered, 15 minutes.
