Jewish Meals

By Mildred Grosberg Bellin

(Copyright, 1963,
Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Inc.)

When someone sighs for a
dish with that "real old-fash-
ioned Jewish tam," it is prob-
ably one like Essec Fleish that
he has in mind. Essec Fleish-
it may also be spelled Essic or
Essig—is a form of sweet-and-
sour meat with the sweet pro-
vided by honey and the sour, as
the name implies, by vinegar.
It was developed in a past era,
when flavor and succulence
were the prime aims, and no.
one had heard of calories. Since
tastes varied even then and
each one had his own idea of
"tam," the exact amount' of sea-
sonings was left to the discre-
tion of the individual cook.
Some modern cooks who pre-
pare Essec Fleish substitute
lemon juice for the vinegar
with delicious results, but tech-
nically this would be incorrect.
Essec means vinegar, and with
the fleish is an indispensable
ingredient of this dish.
Once we have these two,
there• are many possible varia-
tions both in the other season-
ings and in the method of pro-
cedure. The meat may be boiled,
with the seasonings sometimes
added right at the start, and
sometimes later during the
cooking period. Or the meat
may first be browned, then
cooked either in the oven or on
top of the stove, like a pot roast.
In all cases, the meat must cook
slowly and long enough to be
fork tender. The exact time can-
not be given as it depends on
the shape and tenderness of the
cut of meat. However, Essec
Fleish is always better when it
is made in advance, chilled, the
cake of fat removed, and the
meat and gravy reheated. There
is a generous amount of gravy,
which is delicious with mashed
potatoes or kashe.
For our recipes today the
amount of seasonings suggested
are moderate. They may be in-
creased or decreased to suit in-
dividual tastes.

2 lbs. breast of beef (brust)
3 onions, peeled and sliced
3 /4 cup honey
IA cup white vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
1/16 teaspoon pepper
1/16 teaspoon thyme
1 bay leaf
1 slice stale rye bread
Select a piece of single brisket and
have all excess fat removed before
weighing. Place all ingredients_except
the bread in a heavy 4-quart sauce-
pan, bring to a boil, then simmer,
covered, until the meat is very ten-
der, about 2 hours. Remove the bay
leaf. Crumble the bread in .a small
bowl, add a little of the liquid, and
mash the bread until smooth. Stir
into the remaining gravy and sim-
mer 5 minutes. Taste, and add more
seasonings if desired. To serve, slice
the meat, arrange on a platter, and
pass the gravy separately. This
amount serves 5 to 6.

2 lbs. breast of beef, (brust)
2 tablespoons chicken fat
2 onions, peeled and diced
1 green pepper, diced (optional)
1 teaspoon salt
1/16 teaspoon pepper
1 cup water
V2 cup honey
ih cup dark brown sugar
1 /2 cup seedless raisins
1 /4 cup white vinegar
Select a piece of single brisket
and have all the excess fat removed
before weighing. Melt the chicken
fat in a heavy 4-quart saucepan over
medium heat, add the meat, onions,
and green pepper, and brown light-
ly. Add salt, pepper, and water,
bring to a boil, cover, then simmer
until the meat is almost tender,
about 1 1/2 hours. Remove the meat
from the pan and slice. Add the re-
maining ingredients to the gravy
and stir until the sugar is melted.
Return the meat to the pan, and
continue to simmer, covered, until
the meat is very tender. Taste the
gravy, and add more seasonings, if
desired. Serve the meat with some
of the gravy on a deep platter, and
pass the remaining gravy separately.
The green pepper adds a distinctive
taste to this dish; without it the
flavor is more like that of the boiled
Essec Fleish. This amount serves 5
to 6.

Israel Affected
by French Euromart
Veto on Britain

PARIS, (JTA) — France's
veto against admission of Brit-
ain to membership in the Eur-
opean Common Market has up-
set the EEC's time-table so as
to affect Israel's continuing
effort to establish a link with
the six-nation European Market,
it was ascertained here.
A special EEC committee
which was to have reported to
the EEC's Council of Ministers,
on Feb. 9, regarding the nego-
tiations with Israel, will not
report as scheduled and the
Israel topic will be held over
until Mardi at the earliest.
Israel's Ambassador here,
Walter Eytan, met with Foreign
Minister Maurice Couve de Mur-
vile and was reportedly advised
that Israel should trim some of
its demands for the Euromart
link. Couve de Murville is un-
derstood to have advised that
Israel be content 'at the begin-
ning with a "partial agreement"
that would establish a Euro-
mart link only on certain Is-
raeli exoprts, "item by item."
