This dish is really DELICIOUS, even though my recipe for Stuffed Capon Skin is easier, and I think even better. Try them both. My recipe for the Stuffed Capon Skin is #92178 here on RecipeZaar. You may also want to use the Kishka stuffing and the Capon skin, therefore combining the two recipes. If you have questions e-mail me: AlanLeonetti@q.com

Haven't tried it as yet but this is the best recipe I've seen as yet. Cannot find a Kosher Butcher shop where I live to buy the casing so I'll prepare it by rolling the stuffing in aluminum foil boiling it for about 3 hours and then if it doesn't fall apart from boiling it brown it in the oven for about 15 minutes at a time watching very closely.
- 108 inches clean beef casings (buy at a Kosher butcher if you can find one or at a gourmet store)
- 2 cups flour
- 1 cup matzo meal
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt
- 1 tablespoon salt (for boiling)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 teaspoon pepper (for boiling)
- 1 cup melted schmaltz (chicken fat) or 1 cup chopped suet
- 1⁄2 cup grated carrot
- 1 small onion, grated
- 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
Directions See How It's Made
- Wash casings in cold water and cut into 12 inch lengths.
- Tie one end of each length tightly with white sewing thread.
- Turn casings inside out.
- Combine flour, matzo meal, seasonings and schmaltz or suet. Adjust the poultry seasoning to taste. You may wish to add additional poultry seasoning.
- Fill each casing loosely with this stuffing and tie the remaining end.
- Drop into rapidly boiling water and boil 10 minutes.
- When cool enough to handle, scrape fat off the casings with the dull edge of a knife.
- Drop into rapidly boiling water (about a gallon) to which you have added 1 tablespoon salt and at least 1 teaspoon pepper.
- Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered for 3 hours.
- Remove from water.
- Brown for about 1 hour around a roast or roasting poultry.
- (You can also refrigerate and then slice pieces about 1 inch thick and fry them on both sides.).
