Abe Fisher Montreal Short Rib Shabbat Meal Kit

$249
+ Free Shipping

Celebrate Shabbat in style with the ultimate in Jewish comfort foods! The meal begins with warm, rye bread (baked in your own oven) served with a selection of dips and salads, like house-made Boursin cheese, Romanian eggplant, and cucumber salad. Next up is traditional matzo ball soup with soul-warming chicken broth. The centerpiece of the meal is a whole bone-in shortrib, crusted in pastrami spice, and smoked and slow-roasted until it’s fall-off-the-bone tender. Served with a schmaltzy potato kugel, Russian dressing, and spicy mustard, this version takes the Montreal deli classic to another level. The meal is completed with chocolate-dipped coconut macaroons.

Chef Michael Solomonov’s Abe Fisher, Zahav’s sister restaurant, celebrates the food of the Jewish Diaspora, from Eastern Europe to New York City and beyond. In 2015, the restaurant earned a James Beard Foundation semifinalist nomination for “Best New Restaurant."

To Serve

Montreal Short Rib

  • 90 minutes before you are ready to eat, make sure your oven is preheated to 350 degrees.
  • Cut open the two bags of chicken soup, empty into a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer.
  • Bring a separate pot of water to a simmer and add the matzo balls still in their bag.
  • Simmer for 30 minutes until the matzo balls are heated through.
  • Remove the containers of salads and condiments from the refrigerator and arrange in serving dishes if desired. Allow all containers to come to room temperature.
  • Remove the lid from the kugel and re-cover with aluminum foil. Place in the oven for approximately 50-60 minutes or until heated through.
  • Cut open the bag containing the short ribs and place them in a large roasting pan.
  • Arrange the meat on top of the bones.
  • Cover the pan tightly with aluminum foil and place in the oven for approximately 45 minutes or until heated through. You can test this by inserting the tip of a paring knife into the short ribs for a few seconds and then placing it beneath your lower lip.
  • When the short ribs are hot inside, remove to a cutting board and let rest for ten minutes before slicing.
  • Warm the rye bread in the oven for a few minutes if desired and slice just before
    serving
  • Cut open the bag of matzo balls and place one in each bowl.
  • Ladle the chicken soup on top and serve.
  • Place the short ribs on a cutting board and cut ¼ inch thick slices across the grain.
  • Serve with the mustard and Russian dressing, along with the salads and rye bread.
  • Enjoy (and don’t forget about the macaroons for dessert)!

Everything went well! The food came on time, tasted amazing, and was packed well. I will absolutely order again from both the restaurant and Goldbelly as a whole.

I asked for delivery one day early as I was afraid that we would not receive the meal in time for New Year's Eve. Your customer service representative made no promises but indicated she would reach out to the restaurant and make the request on my behalf. We did indeed receive our delivery early and it was delicious. Kudos to the rep that helped me!

The entire process was great! First, I put in an order for my boss for about 30 different people to receive gift cards. And your customer service made it so easy! They took care of everything. And being a recipient of one of those gift cards, I was lucky enough to go on and order from Zahav in Philly, one of my FAVORITE restaurants. I was afraid it wouldn't be as good as when we've gone in person, but it was AMAZING! Tasted exactly the same! My family of 6 enjoyed a wonderful meal! And I loved that Michael Solmonov even provided a video I could watch to help with how to cook the lamb and the rice. That was an extra added bonus.
