Rosh Hashana Roast

Written by chanie on September 22nd, 2011

A Yom Tov meal, especially a regal one like Rosh Hashanah, deserves a dish fit for a king. In this recipe, a French roast is braised in red-wine with jewels of dried fruit reduced in it’s sauce. I can’t think of anything more festive or delicious for a chag in which we coronate Hashem as our king!

    I cook meat so rarely that I never know what to do with it! This looks wonderful. I bought a silver tip roast. Do you think this recipe will work with it?

    • chanie says:

      thanks Rivki. I’m no maven but to my knowledge silver tip roast (roast beef) is best roasted in the oven, first at a high temperature to brown the meat, and then on low (275-325) until just done (measuring approximately 145 on a meat thermometer).

    hi can this be make with brisket?

    • chanie says:

      I prefer to use other cuts of meat. Brisket lends itself well to BBQ sauces, or traditional preparations using carrots, celery, onions and aromatics.

  3. I just made this for shabbos, it was a big hit. Thanks for the recipe! (I left out the sugar and it was still plenty sweet)

    Hi Chanie! I know this is an older post, but I’d like to try this for Rosh Hashanah this year. When you put the roast in the oven to cook do you also add the half cup of water with the seasonings and dried fruit or was that additional water only for when you would cook it on the stove top? Are there any other modifications you make now to the original recipe other than cooking in the oven at 350? Thanks so much!

      It’s so funny how much I’ve learned about cooking meat since I wrote this post! I think you can skip the extra half cup of water since there is less of an evaporation issue in the oven. Just keep an eye on the roast and if the sauce seems a bit too thick/dry then add a bit of water. Let me know how it goes!
