I'm sort of a novice chef, but I really want to try making kreplach for the upcoming holidays. Can anyone recommend a good (but easy-to-follow) recipe from a cookbook or online source? Thanks!
I found a kreplach recipe while I was looking for something else and then came across your question. It's a little tate for the holidays , but why not make them for Fri night? http://forums.egullet.org/index.php?s...
Wow! That's a lot to type. It doesn't seem like it is going to be a link. If you go to egullet.org and search kreplach you'll find it. Good luck!
I made them once with commercial wonton wrappers but I missed the doughier thickness of homemade wrappers. I used to roll the wrappers out by hand, but the Atlas pasta machine now does the job...with that inexpensive device, you can make the dough sheets as thick or thin as you like.
As far as filling, I've used chicken as an alternate to beef. Made them once with lamb as well and put them in a vegetable soup. Pretty darned good...
