Recipe from the local newspaper! Cooking time is very different each time... farfel can take 60-90 mins to become tender.

the cooking time for this recipe is too long- according to the package irections it should be cooked between 10-15 minutes. i think your recipe source was mistaken. this is usually a great side dish for a brisket
