 Samantha, Jamie and Brooke,  are 3 sisters who love to eat and cook. They were always taking pictures of what they were eating, so in 2012 they decided to make an Instagram account @thehungrysisters. The Blum sisters would scroll on Instagram and see food on other accounts that looked so good, but couldn’t eat any of it because it wasn’t kosher. They use our account to post kosher food that they eat and create in a fun and colorful way, creating all content and photography. It’s really important to them that they only post food that they genuinely like to keep things authentic. The Blum sisters love to post about new restaurants and brands that are offering something different and exciting in the kosher world, especially collaborating  with kosher brands and restaurants.

Pomegranate Meatballs by Devorah and Rachel | @onepotonepan

 

On Rosh Hashanah it is customary to eat foods with symbolic importance. When it comes to pomegranates, however, the symbolism lies in the fruit itself. By eating the pomegranate, we express our wish for a year filled with as many merits as a pomegranate has seeds. The sauce is so easy to put together, we are using pomegranate juice, molasses/honey, some spices and that’s it! Garnish with fresh pom seeds and parsley, and you’ve got yourself a beautiful & delicious Rosh Hashana Entre!

Ingredients:

Pomegranate Sauce:

2 cups 100% Pomegranate juice ( we used Pom company)

1 cup Ketchup

2-3 tbsp. Molasses/Honey*

1/2 tsp. all spice

1 tbsp. garlic powder

1 tbsp. onion powder

Meatball Mixture:

1 pound ground beef

1/4 cup breadcrumbs

1 egg, beaten

1 frozen garlic cube/ 1 fresh garlic clove minced

2 heaping tsps. chicken soup mix

Directions:

Sauce: Bring all ingredients to a boil, then lower to a simmer. Cook uncovered for 20 minutes.

Mixture: While the sauce is cooking, prep the meatballs. Combine all ingredients together, and form small- medium size balls (whatever your preference) and place into sauce gently. Cover and cook on a low flame for 1 1/2 hours. Just let it cook and forget about it. The meat becomes soft and is the best texture. The sauce also thickens a bit:)

NOTES

* We used molasses here. It gives that nice dark color and sweetness. But feel free to swap for a honey, and adjust to how sweet you like it.
