YAPCHIK – Slow Baked Potato Kugel

I had never heard about YAPCHIK in my entire life! But I am sure glad I found this recipe now!

Turns out it is a slow baked potato kugel with meat cooked inside.

Baked in a very low oven for 8 hours…cholent style.

The recipe is from JOYofKosher.

Ever since I first read about this on their site I was eager to try it. I was not disappointed. It is amazingingly delicious. It is soft in texture, tasty beyond belief.

We ate it during the week & I served it alongside some ribs. There isn’t a ton of meat in it, just scattered here & there. The recipe suggests baking it overnight, which of course is good for Shabbat, but I just put it together in the morning, kept it in the oven all day & we had it for dinner that night. The first hour & a half are baked at a high heat, mine started to burn at about 1 hour 15 so I turned the heat down then, so i suggest you watch it after the first hour.  I think you should give this a try ….so good!

I am not re-writing the recipe because I did not change anything! I used pastrami as the meat but there are options for the meat to use!

Here is the post to the recipe

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
