Slow-Braised Beef Tzimmes

Tags: American, Main Dish, Meat, Tzimmes Plus
Serves: 4 - 6 / Simanim: Carrots, Honey
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 6 hours


  • 2 pounds chuck steak
  • 5 carrots
  • 3 big sweet potatoes
  • ½ bag of prunes
  • 1 large orange
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ginger
  • ½ cup honey
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • ½ cup water
  • ¾ cup red wine (I used Zmora cabernet)
  • Kosher salt and pepper


Peel and cube the sweet potatoes and carrots, and place in the bottom of a crockpot. Add the prunes and the chuck steak. Cut the orange in half, and squeeze the juice over the whole mixture. Cut the remaining orange into pieces and place into the crockpot, as well. Sprinkle generous amounts of salt and pepper over the mix, then add the honey, soy sauce, water, wine, cinnamon and ginger. Set the crockpot to low and let it cook for 6-8 hours. This is a great dish to make in advance. It’s easy to serve the first night or day meal of Rosh Hashanah. Enjoy!
