Shabbat Menu: Dinner Only

My previous post told the story of this weekend, but this blog is also about food.  Here is what we are having this weekend.  We were invited out for lunch, so dinner is the only real meal.

Shabbat Parshat Emor
Dinner - 15
Oriental Potato Soup
Beef Daube
Twice baked potatoes
Artichokes and Dip
Spicy Green Beans
Israeli Salsa

A Beef Daube is beef marinaded in beer, wine or stock with garlic and spices.  The whole mess is then cooked as a stew.  I used Murphy's Stout. It smells very nice!

The spicy green beans is a variant of this recipe, intended for spinach.  We had some spinach and I was intending on making the spinach version, but my wife preempted my attempt with a recipe for spinach dip.  Oh well, it works very nice for green beans!

  • 1 package frozen cut green beans
  • 2 Tbs oil
  • 2 large onions, sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp dried ginger
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp ground tumeric
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 1 tsp salt
Saute the onions until they begin to get soft.  Add the cumin seeds and cook for a few minutes.  Add the rest of the spices and cook until fragrant.  Add the green beans and cook until done, about 10-15 minutes.

Shavua Tov,
I tried the green bean recipe and Shabbat chicken recipe. Both were enjoyed by all.
