Kraft Russian dressing

I have a recipe for beef briskett that requires Kraft Russian Dressing. Lots of place to buy Kraft dressings. But where do they sell Kraft RUSSIAN Dressing.

  1. Russian dressing should be pretty easy to make with ingredients you probably have laying around the house already.....

    1. Here you go. I haven't been able to find it anywhere else.

        The real question is will these hard to find grocery items be allowed cross the border, a lot of restrictions these days.

        1. re: callitasicit

          We do a grocery run every month @ Wegman's. When coming back, we declare that we did x amount in groceries and never once have we been asked to show what we bought or paid duties for that matter. Or has anything ever been confiscated!

            This company mentioned by toni57 will ship to Canada, but charges start at $U.S.30, followed by brokerage at the border. Better to make your own Russian dressing.

      2. Having consumed much Kraft Russian dressing while growing up, including as a brisket ingredient, I can tell you that sourcing this stuff is hardly worth the hassle or cost. Obviously, YMMV.

          1. It's probably easier to make than import. As embee says, it's not very sophisticated stuff.

            This link sounds about right. Scroll down to get to the recipe:

              Actually, the Kraft Russian dressing doesn't resemble what I, and most recipe books, think of as Russian dressing. And that's not a good thing.

              I have tasted brisket cooked in Kraft Russian dressing and, while it wasn't anything worth bothering with, it wasn't ridiculous. Cooking brisket in what I think of as Russian dressing (e.g., Hellman's mayo, Kraft chili sauce, and chopped sweet pickles) would be revolting.

                Oops, yeah, you're right. I forgot the Kraft version was that weird red lacquer-type stuff, and what the application in the OP was. Not better as a salad dressing, but yes, infinitely better for cooking brisket. I still agree with you that it's definitely not worth importing, though.
