You don't have to leave this overnight but it works really well if you choose to do so. This is also known as a yapchik, which is basically a potato kugel covering either flanken or a swiss steak. If you prefer no bones, definitely go with the swiss steak which is very tender and delicious and not an expensive cut. I use this recipe for my kugel minus sauteing the onion [Recipe 71313] .

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute the onion well on your stovetop (do not burn).
  2. Transfer to a baking dish (I use a foil pan) and add steak with 2 tablespoons of oil. Bake at 400 degrees for 30-40 minutes, covered.
  3. Transfer the raw kugel to the hot pan, taking care to pour the entire kugel to hide the meat .Uncover and return to the oven.
  4. Bake until well browned. If leaving overnight keep in a 250 degree oven or on the hot plate covered.
