Crazy For Kreplach

Your family may have a fancier recipe, but this basic one off the Chabad website is super scrumptious and simple enough for beginners!

The Dough:

  • 1 and 1/3 cups flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • Filling
  • 1 cup ground beef or chicken (or potatoes, etc)
  • 1 small onion, grated
  • 1 teaspoon salt

To Make:

  • In a large bowl, combine the dough ingredients together.  Knead and roll out thin on floured board. Cut into 3 inch squares or circles.
  • In another bowl, mix filling ingredients well. Place a teaspoon of filling carefully in the center of dough. Fold so sides meet in center and press edges together, fold the top over to ‘seal’ – helps to dip finger in cold water to moisten.
  • Kreplach can now be boiled and served in soup or sauteed in oil.

To Boil:

  • Place in boiling salted water – cook approximately 20 minutes until kreplach float to top.  Add to your favorite broth and enjoy!


To Saute:

  • Heat in skillet over medium flame, take boiled kreplach and saute until golden brown on both sides. Yum!
