    jordana sarrell's Note:

    This is a traditional Jewish dish and an old family recipe from my Hungarian grandmother. You can choose to boil or fry them. I like to fry them. They are soooo delicious. Cooking time is for frying.

      First off, fabulous kreplach!!! Now I am going to address Bokempop. If you have ever worked with kreplach dough you know you never add more oil only water. I live in Albuquerque which is high altitude and I added 1/2 cup of water to the flour mixture. As far as the filling goes, add whatever your family likes, mine is much more garlic. A recipe is a start, not an end. To Jordana, fabulous kreplach!!! The same that I made with my Oma as I child. Thank you so very much for bringing back wonderful memories to me!!!!!

      I liked the recipe for authentic taste, but would have preferred chicken instead of beef. To the person who didn't like the dough: there are variations in moisture content with flour, and the cook needs to be able to adjust. Dumpling dough recipes are merely a guide.

      My apologies for giving this a negative rating. The dough was still dry after adding far more oil than stated and I eventually had to make my own dough recipe. The meat filling was not impressive.
